O’s Notes: Five Play is quintet led and produced by husband Tony Corman (g) and wife Laura Klein (p). The pair split writing duty for the album and is joined by Dave Tidball (sax), Alan Hall (d) and Paul Smith (b) for their second release. The Bay Area based band focuses on music that soothes the mind and soul. It is a mellow fusion that has depth without overwhelming the listener. We enjoyed “Ting-a-Ling”, “Off the Ground” and the cool club jazz feel of “Ha Ha” with Corman and Tidball playing cat and mouse throughout.
