O’s Notes: Bassist Ray Parker assembled this string jazz trio to perform nine classic jazz pieces. Guitarist Jon Hart and violinist Russell George are up to the task and they swing hard on some great arrangements of solid tunes. “Always”, “The Nearness of You” and “Just In Time” are a few of the best highlighted by solid contributions from each musician. All of the puzzle pieces fit snuggly together start to finish. We especially enjoyed Ray’s work with the bow. The recording is spatially correct too, adding to our enjoyment of an excellent session.
