O’s Notes: Drummer Shawn Kelly leads a trio with Taurey Butler (p) and Therdsak Wongvichien (b). They are a lively bunch from the start when Butler opens up on “Just One Of Those Things” before Wongvichien takes a cool bass solo. They sound a lot larger than a trio! The swinging groove persists through “Summertime”, “Take Five” and “C Jam Blues”. There are nine covers in all and they are presented well.
