O’s Notes: Guitarist Mike Clinco has a wealth of experience and has played with a virtual who’s who in the jazz arena. Bob Sheppard (fl, cl), Walt Fowler (t), Darek “Oles” Oleszkiewicz (acoustic b), Jimmy Johnson (electric b) and Jimmy Branley (d) form the rest of the band. Clinco wrote most of the material and produced an enjoyable set. It’s relaxed, swinging fusion that won’t give you a headache! They vary the pace and mood making repeated listening enjoyable. Among our favorites are the title track and “Amalgam”, a jovial tune with a bossa nova feel.
