O’s Notes: Kenny Kotwitz plays accordion, bell piano and leads The LA Jazz Quintet with Chuck Berghofer (b), Nick Mancini (vibes), John Chiodini (g) and Kendall Kay (d, perc). They open with ”When Lights Are Low” setting the tone for thirteen classic, mood tunes. The arrangements are beautiful and enticing for relaxed listening. There’s no hurry as they stroll through the music, allowing full absorption of the moment and feel of each cut. “Estate”, “Harlem Nocturne” and “Manhattan” are highlights.
