O’s Notes: New York-based saxophonist Sam Taylor leads a swinging quintet with Terrell Stafford (t), Jeb Patton (p), Neal Minor (b) and Willie Jones III (d). They play nine covers and Taylor’s original title track. The tempo varies but they all swing, from ballads like “Angel Face” and “Prisoner Of Love” to burners like “Gettin’ Together” and “Bye Bye Baby”, Let Go is a winner!
