O’s Notes: Swiss trumpeter Franco Ambrosetti has matured as a musician through the decades. At 80, he’s more focused on rich, sweet sound from his flugelhorn than blazing across the scales with piercing high notes! Nora is a collection of warm ballads with a lush string orchestra conducted by Alan Broadbent featuring Sara Caswell (violin). The songs are classics, with fresh arrangements that will sooth your soul. Scott Cooley (b), Uri Caine (p) and Peter Erskine (d) provide a solid foundation. Guest John Scofield shines on “Morning Sunrise of A Spring Flower”. “All Blues” and “Autumn Leaves” are notable.
