O’s Notes: Guitarist Rick Stone leads a trio with Marco Panascia (b) and Tom Pollard (d). They play a cool bop set of eleven songs, seven originals with four freshly arranged standards. Rick has an inviting style that draws the listener into his melodies. “Key Lime Pie” and “Darn That Dream” are good examples of this skill. He maintains that easy going approach all the way through the set even on when the tempo slows on “Ballad for Very Sad And Very Tired Lotus Eaters”. This a fine set.
