O’s Notes: Trotman plays sax and flute breathing warmth into a mix of smooth Caribbean music that is ready for celebrating. Tropicality is a swinging contemporary jazz set with several strong selections. ƒlan includes top guest artists like Alex Al (b), Paul Brown (b) and Luis Conte (perc) to accentuate his work. Among the best tunes are “Bridgetown to Beantown” featuring keyboardist Jeff Lorber, “Always With You” with Peter White (g), the title track with Nick Colionne (g) and “Funkalypso” featuring Terri Lynn Carrington (d).
