O’s Notes: This is a mellow blend of instruments backed by a solid band including guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkle and Mark Turner on sax. Lupri plays the vibraphone. He wrote all of the tunes based on his daily life encounters. The transformations to music work well especially on the funky fusion of “Saucey”, “Cathy’s Tune” – the swinging dedication to his wife, and the mellow title track. If you’re in the Boston area, check him out live.
