O’s Notes: Saxophonist John Daniel “JD” Allen has explored various approaches in his recordings from politics, to spontaneous hard bop. The common thread is passion and that passion serves JD well on his latest encounter. “LoveStone“is a series of warm romantic ballads that will most definitely put you in a relaxed mood.“Liberty Ellman (g), Rudy Royston (d) and Gregg August (b) make up the rest of his quartet. They perform nine covers of classic love songs.“Dare we say that someone has captured Allen’s heart!
