O’s Notes: Multi-instrumentalist (p, sax, cl), composer and producer Tom Ranier enlists the support of Trey Henry (b), Ralph Humphrey (d) and Thom Rotella (g) for This Way, a fine collection of upbeat, contemporary, jazz instrumentals. There’s a taste of Brazil on “Desafinado” and a pleasant vibe on “Blue Aria”, the title track. and “Trio Vision” with a fine solo by Henry. It is a subtle set that begs a replay.
