O’s Notes: The music has a cool groove to it, especially “Winter Solstice” one of a collection of 15 tunes over two CDs that swing nicely. They are songs based on standards with fresh melodies and harmonies. Greg is a confident guitarist at ease sharing the stage. There is nice work on trombone by Pat Hallaran. It doesn’t stop there as Andy Bevan (sax) and Robbie Belgrade (cl) also make strong contributions. This is not to slight Chako who displays prowess on his instrument throughout but only to stress the balance. The result is music that is not fatiguing.
