O’s Notes: Guitarist John Stein typically plays high-energy jazz-fusion. Emotion is energetic with a mild infusion of tango and it is oh so mellow! The Latin flavor comes courtesy of Spanish drummer Matias Mingote German who was born in Argentina. Tango is in his DNA and Mingot is his nickname hence the Mingotan Project. While Stein wrote 6 of the 10 compositions and performs up to his usual standards, he allows his fellow band members to shine as well. Evan Harlan (accordion), John Lockwood (b) and Rebecca Kleinmann (fl) are up to the task. The net effect is positive for a warm session.
