Veteran bassist Pat Senatore, who spent years touring with Herb Alpert’s Tijuana Brass and has not only played with but booked the who’s who of jazz (most notably at Pasquale’s and more recently Vibrato), is a fine accompanist and an excellent soloist who always displays a big warm sound.

On Inspirations, he teams up with pianist Tom Ranier (who switches to bass clarinet on “The Duke”) and drummer Christian Euman for a set of spirited straight ahead jazz and warm ballads. Herb Alpert makes rare guest appearaces on trumpet during “Laura” and “Georgia On My Mind,” with the latter also including guitarist Larry Koonse. Among the highlights of this easily enjoyable set are “Anthropology,” “Road Song” and a fresh version of “The Theme.”
