O’s Notes: It took us a while to get to this CD because its contents are well disguised! Yes, Mort Weiss is a formidable swinger on clarinet but his name begins with ‘W’ and that pushed it to the bottom of our stack. Then we pushed ‘play’ and were surprised that this is more cool jazz than swing courtesy of the B3. And it swings never the less! The special guest is Joey DeFrancesco and his addition is noble. Together with Craig Ebner (g) and Byron Landham (d) they cook up a winning set of nine songs. Mort’s pairing with the B3 is a winner!
