O’s Notes: Drummer Ben Adkins leads quintet with Alphonso Horne (t), Joshua Bowles (p), Paul Miller (g) and Stan Piper (b). They play Salmagundi, a mixture of standards and originals. It is a jovial set starting with the bouncy “Lucky” and prancing along through “You And The Night And The Music” and “When You Smile” a soothing ballad featuring guitarist Paul Miller and bassist Stan Piper. Guest artist Linda Cole sings “When You Smile at Me”, the lone vocal selection in a good set
