O’s Notes: Gates is a cool crooner serving up a large dose of jazzy blues on Everything Is Cool. Grant Stewart is shadowing on tenor sax with John Di Martino tickling the ivory to give the music a mysterious, club-like feel. Bassist Ed Howard and drummer Willard Dyson keep a steady pulse as we bob our head in appreciation. Gates scats and sings on “Please Don’t Bug Me”, one of several tunes with candid, humorous lyrics that make this an entertaining, enjoyable session.
