O’s Notes: Composer, guitarist Jim Witzel leads an organ trio with Brian Ho on the B3 and Jason Lewis on drums. Guest Dann Zinn adds tenor sax on three selections notably on “Feelin’ It”. The sound is warm and swings with a variety of different voices (sax, B-3, g) on the melodies. Highlights include “Softly, as in a Morning Sunrise”, “Beyond Beijing” and “The Old Country”.
