O’s Notes: Pianist Leslie Pintchik assembles a fine sextet that includes Satoshi Takeishi (perc), Scott Hardy (g, b) and guest Steve Wilson (sax) on two selections.“You Eat My Food, You Drink My Wine, You Steal My Girl!“is a joyful collection of eight ballads that resonated with us over and over again. Pintchik composed six of the songs and did a wonderful job. The music is peaceful, relaxed and jubilant. We especially enjoyed the arrangement of “Smoke Gets In Your Eyes” and “Mortal” but there are no losers here!
