O’s Notes: Guitarist John Stein delivers a set of nine mellow fusion tunes. About half are originals. Among the best are “Line Drive” and “The Roundabout”. Add cool covers of “Jordu”, “Close Your Eyes”, “You Don’t Know What Love Is” and “Só Dano Samba” to make this a great program. Stein employs bassist John Lockwood, Zé Eduardo (d) and Koichi Sato (p) making this a truly international quartet and perhaps his album yet.
