O’s Notes: Atley King is a young Canadian vibraphonist and composer leading a quintet on Unconditional. Max Huberdeau (p), Brad Turner (flugelhorn), David Caballero (b), and Arvind Ramdas (d) join him. 8 of 9 compositions are King originals with a cool cover of Coltrane’s “Naima” to wrap up the set. Other highlights are “Wondering”, “Doing Good”, and “To Each Their Own”.
