O’s Notes: A melodic trombone can be very rewarding and John Fedchock delivers a winner with Into The Shadows. He leads a sextet through eight, mostly original selections. Scott Wendholt (t) and Walt Weiskopt (t-sax) join him on a crisp, harmonized front line. Fedchock’s work is pure bliss on tunes like “Manaus” and “Nature Boy”. David Finck (b) and Eric Halvorson (d) keep it steady while pianist Allen Farnham tickles the ivory notably “On The Edge”, setting the stage for a spirited romp to close the set!
