Dino Govoni – Hiding In Plain Sight
O’s Notes: Saxophonist Dino Govoni leads a quintet with Alex Sipiagin (t), Henry Hey (p), Michael Pope (b) and Jeff “Tain” Watts (d). The music was mostly original, composed by Paul Nigel (4) with Hey (2), Pope (1), and Govoni (1) along with a swinging cover of Hal Crook’s “Thinkers Anonymous”. The band maintains that energy, especially on “Stories Passed”. Dino’s best illustrations are on “Ask Again” And “Apels to Apples”, overflowing with passion.
