O’s Notes: Pianist Gerard Hagen produced and arranged this set tunes in honor of his wife Leslie. The band is a trio with Domenic Genova on bass and drummer Jerry Kalaf. The program has three standards and two originals each from Jerry and Gerard. This one swings gently and is easy to enjoy enhanced by excellent audio quality. The title track is among the best of the swinging ballads culminating with the bouncy “464 Blues”.
