O’s Notes: Spira plays tenor & soprano sax, produced and composed most of the music for his latest release. He captures the spirit of jazz with elements from Paris and New York but mostly In Between. Glenn Ferris complements Stéphane on trombone. The sounds are soft and warm with blends of sax and trombone complemented by Jonathan Blake’s gentle approach on the drums Steve Wood anchoring the rhythms on bass. The effect is pleasing over a dozen songs including a Wood original and a couple of covers. This is perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon.
