O’s Notes: David sings blues-based jazz telling a story on each selection. He has chosen a fine band to accompany him including the venerable Phil Woods on sax and clarinet, pianist Mike Melvoin, Steve Gilmore (b) and Bill Goodwin (d). They swing where they need to swing and make a strong impression. Basse shares the stage but steps forward with his raspy tones to impart character into the songs. We found him most entertaining on the blues tracks.
