WeJazz (Finland), 2019. New Copy ... $22.99
Music that you'd hardly expect, if you only know the more groove-oriented side of saxophonist Timo Lassy – the sounds he's given us from the Ricky-Tick years onwards – because this album is straight jazz overall, and a relatively improvised one at that!

A killer set from keyboardist Jeff Lorber – an artist who really had a lot to offer back here in his early years!
