O’s Notes: Obed Calvaire (d), Bob Franceschini (t-sax), Kevin Hays (p) and Orlando Le Fleming (b) play The Music of Led Zeppelin on Whole Lotta Love. This is a swinging session right out of the gate with the title track. They weave in relaxers like “Immigrant Song” provoking thoughts, and mid-tempo grooves “For Your Life” & “Dazed And Confused”. We also liked the soulful “Custard Pie”. This is a fine jazz interpretation of the original rock music recorded in high definition by Chesky Records.
