O’s Notes: Smooth jazz saxophonist Eric Marienthal presents his latest release, It’s Love, a combination of easy flowing ballads and relaxed dance tunes. Chuck Loeb (g), Russell Ferrante (p) and Jimmy Haslip (b) are among the stars that join him to accentuate the session. The program is mostly new originals with a couple of pop covers. We liked the soothing groove of “St. Moritz” with guests Jeff Lorber (g, p) and Toll Brönner (t) and the Latin groove of “Costa Del Soul”. It is right on target for the smooth jazz set.
