O’s Notes: These are mostly gentle ballads like “Rainy Afternoon” with Michael taking a beautiful solo on bass. Blanco wrote and produced all ten tunes and allows each of his team to express themselves. His prime musicians are Aaron Goldberg (p), Alan Ferber (tb), Rich Perry (ts) and Bill Campbell (d) with Rob Wilkerson (as) pitching in on two tracks. Among the best were the upbeat “Uptown Meditations” featuring Aaron and the warm brass of “Moodswings”.
