O’s Notes: Tango Caliente has the fervor promised by the title along with soothing selections like “Etruscan Call”. Andrew Steman (sax, fl) and Richie Vitale (t, flugelhorn) do a fine job of weaving the brass into the rhythm section of bassist Paul Gill, drummer Tim Horner and leader/pianist D’Amico. This is a strong team that delivers Jay’s compositions with precision and grace. The liner notes suggest musicality as the prime descriptor and we agree!
