O’s Notes: Guitarist Graham Dechter is Right On Time with this spirited set of ten bebop tunes leading his quartet. We loved Jeff Hamilton’s work on drums. He uses the entire set comping with Graham on several tunes starting with Jobim’s “Wave”. Dechter is fluid on “Broadway” swinging along with bassist John Clayton. John uses the bow on “With Every Breath I Take” adding to the romantic mood. Tamir Hamilton (p) also shines on this piece, one of two ballads. But the best are the burners and Dechter cooks notably on “Squatty Roo” and “Lines With A Groove”. Graham’ sound is crisp, well articulated, warm very inviting.
