O’s Notes: Drummer, composer and producer Steve Grover assembles a fine band to present his latest work, Variations. Frank Calrberg (p) and Sean Farlas (b) join Grover to form the rhythm section with several brass musicians adding punch along the way. Christine Correa is the featured vocalist. They swing on “Darkness With Light”, “Let There Be Darkness”, “Seeing This” and “Postlude”. They also mix in a few spontaneous improvisational tracks and a couple of blues tunes notably “Space”. There is a good set with lots of character.
