O’s Notes: Meurkens’ work on harmonica is outstanding as always and his inclusive approach with fellow band members makes this a standout set. Dado Moroni (p), Marco Panascia (b) and Jimmy Cobb (d) join Hendrick to form the core quartet with guest artists Joe Magnarelli (t) and Anders Bostrom (fl) performing on four selections each. The entire team plays on “SKJ” one of the highlights of the set. We also enjoyed “In Your Own Sweet Way” and “Mean Dog Blues”, one of five Meurkens originals making Harmonicus Rex a winner.
