O’s Notes: The Decider groups Chris Colangelo (b) and Ryan Doyal (d) with leader Benn Clatworthy (sax). The program is a mix of originals and standards. Benn blows the melody like a singer on Monk’s “Pannonica” before swinging hard on the title track. He puts a melancholy feel on “I Get a Kick Out of You” while “Bossa Mia” lives up to its title. The heart and soul of the session is “Sister Sarah” with Clatworthy in top form and also featuring a cool solo from Colangelo. The dark tones outweigh the bright ones casting a gloomy mood on the session.
