O’s Notes: The opener, “Lemoncello” is a welcoming swinger, one of several great cuts. Our favorites are the upbeat title track and the warm arrangement of “The Look of Love”. The band is Watson on sax, Terell Stafford (t), Edward Simon (p), Essiet Essiet (b) and Victor Lewis (d). They play well together especially on ballads like “Dark Days” and syncopated tracks like “Permanoon”. Bobby has yet another gem with Horizon Reassembled.
