O’s Notes: Drummer Chris Parker leads a trio with pianist Kyoto Oyobe and Ameen Saleem on bass. Saleem replaces Daryl Johns, the young protégé who appeared with the trio in 2012 and the new team performs as though they were together for decades. They share the stage unselfishly and sparkle in the spotlight when called. They cook on “Song For Bilbao” and sooth on “Waltz For Apple” displaying polished skills throughout the set, eleven tunes with a few Parker originals. It’s a winner.
