O’s Notes: “Anyplace Anytime” is a fine example of the warm flowing tunes on“No Reservation Required. We enjoyed most of the songs especially the instrumentals like “Passport” and “Preachin’ To The Choir”. The core band includes Billy Thornton on bass with drummer Emrah Koran. Guests Craig Shaw (b) and Terreon Gully (d) play on two selections notably “Four On The Floor”. Pianist Gary Motley plays throughout the set with a bubbly, vibrant style and his accompaniment is locked in stride to make this a winning session.
