O’s Notes: The core trio with pianist Gary Versace, drummer Ian Forman and leader, bassist, Michael Finberg keeps everything rolling throughout the session. The sax duties are handled by Dave Liebman (soprano) and Noah Preminger (tenor). The songs have names of Feinberg’s hero’s hometown cities, from which he draws inspiration. There’s a strong sax solo by Liebman on “East St. Louis” and Versace lights it up on “Pontiac” before Feinberg opens “Nogales” with a convincing solo channeling a vibe from Mingus.
