O’s Notes: Veteran jazz artist Eddie Daniels (fl, cl, t-sax) presents Night Kisses: A Tribute to Ivan Lins, the legendary Brazilian pianist and composer. It is well-deserved appreciation and acknowledgement of a tremendous musician. The music comes from Ivan Lins albums recorded from 1977 through 2014. There’s beautiful piano work from Josh Nelson on “D’Aquil Que Eu Sei”. We also enjoyed Eddie’s warm sax on “Cantor Da Noite”. Guest artist Dave Grusin (p) appears on three selections and Bob James also plays on two tracks. Both appear on the final track “Ivante”. The Harlem Quartet adds depth with strings making Night Kisses more than a simple compilation.
