O’s Notes: Portland-based guitarist, composer and educator Anson Wright leads a quartet for Only Love, his latest recording. Jasnam Dayna Singh (p), Brian Casey (b) and Todd Scott Bishop (d) provide good accompaniment. There are some spirited strolls, as on “Rahway Blues” and a couple of warm ballads like “Merci Mon Frére” and “All Shall Rise To Thee” that make for a good set.
