O’s Notes: Guitarist Dave Askren and alto saxophonist Jeff Benedict lead a quartet with John Belzaguy (b) and Ramon Banda (d). They play six covers and two originals each from Dave and Jeff. We especially enjoyed “Monk’s Mood”, Askren’s “McCannism” and Benedict’s “The Weather Is Here, Wish You Were Beautiful”. The music is relaxed and engaging that got better with each track. It’s All About The Groove!
