O’s Notes: There is a wide array of tunes on this CD and they are all well orchestrated, large ensemble jazz selections. Trumpeter and composer arranger Berger leads the charge. The music is inspired by the WTC 9/11 incidents and aftermath. The titles give us helpful hints. From the mysterious New Orleans sound of “On The Scent” to a little calypso on “El Barrio” this is a well-balanced and enjoyable session.
