O’s Notes: Pianist, composer, bandleader and producer JC Hopkins assembles a large ensemble for“Meet Me At Minton’s. It’s a throwback recording of swinging jazz in the hay days of Harlem. Kevin Burke and Aria Hendricks sing, scat and harmonize adding depth and dimension to a fine recording that also includes the late Jon Hendricks and Andy Bey. Classics like “All Right, OK, You Win”, “Spreadin’ Rhythm Around” and “Looking Back” are fun, entertaining and worth your while!
