O’s Notes: Dan Moretti (sax) leads a trio with Marty Ballou (b) and Marty Richards (d). They play eleven original Moretti compositions. The music cuts across many boundaries as they swing on “Cajun the Squirel”, get funky on “Fais Do-Do”, add a taste of calypso on “Guacamaya” then ease up on ballads like “The Whisper”. We like Moretti’s creative neobop/fusion jaunt. He shares space with his fellow musicians who all excel. We never missed the piano!
