O’s Notes: Leslie Pintchik has a muted mellow sound on piano that serves as a rich platform for the beautiful sounds on In The Nature of Things. Steve Wilson (sax), Ron Horton (t), Michael Sarin (d), Satoshi Takeishi (perc) and Scott Hardy (b) round out the sextet supporting Leslie on eight new originals and a cover of “I’ve Grown Accustomed To Her Face”. There are some upbeat bouncy tunes but this set is mostly dynamic ballads that are superb background tunes. Our favorites: “Ripe”, “Luscious” and “Terse Tune”.
