O’s Notes: No Goodbyes is the miraculous story of guitarist John Stein’s return to action after a debilitating diagnosis of an autoimmune disorder in 2021. Nearly fully recovered, he celebrates this release with bassist Ed Lucie and drummer Mike Connors. Stein is passionately melodic in his playing. He’s scatting on “Dig Blues”, and in fine form on “Tristre”. Cindy Scott sings on five tracks notably “Our Love Will See Us Through”, “Every Stepping Stone”, and the title track. Welcome back John!
