O’s Notes: Trumpeter and composer/producer Ron King delivers seven new selections of contemporary jazz, primarily instrumentals. His musical team includes proven performers like pianist Jeff Lorber on “Luv Vibe” and conguero Lenny Castro on “A Long Way Home”, both standout pieces. Among the best of the rest are “Atlantic Thoughts” and “If You Could Only Know My Mind”. This is a step above smooth jazz with well-developed, warm, melodic solos.
