O’s Notes: Bassist Will Lyle is a formidable composer, producer and bandleader who puts together a fine recording, LA Source Codes. It is swinging from the start with “Forasteria” featuring Bob Sheppard (t-sax), Marvin “Smitty” Smith (d) and Mahesh Balisoriyah (p). Lyle adds a cool bass solo on “Be My Love” and he’s back skipping along on “No. 1 Green Street” with Sheppard and Balisoriyah providing an explosive solos as well. They swing hard on “So In Love” in a set that keeps you engaged end to end.
