O’s Notes: Drummer Al Ashley leads a stellar quartet with Dave Liebman (sax), Oliver Von Essen (organ) and Rick Stone (guitar). The music is a cool fusion that allows each of the musicians to display their talents and blend as a team as well. The title refers to living life to its fullest today, the good times and the music reflects this. All seven tunes maintain this feeling, a cooking set.
