O’s Notes: Drummer Rob Garcia leads a quarter with pianist Dan Taper, Noah Preminger (sax) and Chris Lightcap (b). He composed nine of the ten compositions, mostly soft fusion instrumentals. Rob has played with many widely respected jazz artists but this is his own showcase. He injects several solos to demonstrate his chops and engages well with his sidemen. We liked the groove of “Vortex”, his cover of “Cherokee” and “Cyberganic” best.
