O’s Notes: This is an unusual outing for Hasselbach in that it’s dominated by traditional standards. He does a fine job of it! Hasselbach assembles his“dream team“including Ernie Watts (sax), Cory Weeds (sax) and Miles Black (p). We particularly enjoyed “Stolen Moments” featuring Gabriel and bassist Laurence Mollerup and “Terra Firma Irma” showcasing Watts. Mike Taylor steps up to the mic for “Nature Boy” the lone vocal track. There is also a taste of NOLA with two takes on “Mississippi Jump” and a modernized tribute to Miles o “So What… Now?”
