O’s Notes: This is a swinging sextet with a lot of energy. They breathe life into eight jazz standards to get you tapping your feet starting with “You’d Be So Nice To Come Home To”. Joel leads the charge on trumpet along with Michael Rose (sax), Cengiz Yaltkaya (p), Doug MacDonald (g), Bill Von Ravernsberg (b) and Steve Pemberton (d). Doug picks up the melody on “Invitation” and adds a cool solo on “Straight Life”. The brass accents are crisp with as they move into Latin jazz space on “Laura”. Penner switches to flugelhorn for “My Funny Valentine” to round out a very good session!
