O’s Notes: Ginger Berglund is the featured vocalist on this collection of fifteen popular tunes from The Johnny Mandel Songbook. Trombonist Scott Whitfield adds vocals, fresh arrangements and leads his Jazz Orchestra West. This is beautiful music from the opener “Cinnamon & Clove” to the finale “I Won’t Believe My Eyes”. Scott invites many special guests to accentuate the session including Ken Peplowski (cl), Don Shelton (cl), and Moreira (perc). The Los Angeles Vocal Alliance (LAVA) and The Modernaries also add vocal harmonies on a few selections to balance an enjoyable set.
