O’s Notes: Jim developed an appreciation for the great American songbooks as a child listening to Sinatra. He learned a lot, including the art of swing. And that is exactly what’s happening on this set. The musicians behind Altamore are strong, especially Bill Easley (sax, fl) and Eric W. Johnson (g). There are a dozen classics including the mild samba on “Just One Of Those Things”, the relaxed pace of “Nice ‘N Easy” and “Route 66”. This is easy going music that is easy to absorb. It’s not too flashy, just cool, swinging ballads.
