O’s Notes: Polished saxophonist Ron Blake steps into the leadership role on Mistaken Identity, not his first recording, but one that places him in the spotlight, and deservingly so! He gets support from Bobby Broom (g), Kobie Watkins (d) and either Nat Reeves or Reuben Rogers on bass. They play nine selections varying tempo and mood. “Beyond Yesterday’s Tomorrows”, “Is That So?”, and the calypso-laced title track are among the best selections.
