O’s Notes: Saxophonist John Petrucelli leads a quintet with pianist Victor Gould, Peter Park on guitar, bassist Alex Claffy and Gusten Rudolph on drums. Victor Lewis makes a guest appearance playing drums on three selections. This is a talented crew that blazed through the changes without missing a beat. There are eleven selections including eight composed by Petrucelli on two CDs. We preferred the more melodic second disc with “Moment Of Grace”, Monk’s “Gallop’s Gallop” and their cover of “Early Autumn”. That’s The Way.
