O’s Notes: Reedmaster Mikole Kaar has a strong sense of swing that helps him keep pace with the best in class. There are some cool arrangements here especially “I Love Paris” and “Gentle Rain” including some nice work on guitar by Pat Danna. But what makes this CD stand out is the varied character of the melodies coming from Kaar. He uses sax, flute, clarinet and even the bassoon to freshen these classics.
