Review: Double-bassist Ornig leads a post-bop contemporary ensemble her latest disc, controlling the session's mood from the bottom and ensuring that melody flows casually. The quintet has depth and rainbow harmony. Each instrumental voice takes its cue from the leader, assuming a gentle timbre and mellow attitude. The music swings comfortably while teamwork plays a vital role through unison passages and other shared choruses.
