O’s Notes: Pianist Randy Klein forms two duos to perform a dozen original jazz-fusion compositions. He pairs with guitarist Alex Skolnick to generate a lot of positive momentum on “Casa China” and “Exalted Kingdom”. Boris Kozlov plays bass and provides a similar strong impact on “Dear Charles Mingus” and then a soft ballad, “Tea For Three”. Randy alternates the pairings to sustain the listener’s interest. The soundstage is open drawing listeners into Klein’s space and keeping them there with a smile.
