Bob Leto Trio: Cheesecake

A chummy atmosphere permeates this easygoing set, as drummer Bob Leto gives nine modern-jazz standards a brisk yet understated workout. Leto’s rhythms are dynamic yet in-the-pocket, somehow both chugging and transparent, and spiked by sudden splashes of energy. Out front, guitarist Tim Siciliano brings in a coolly classic sound, his nimble single-note runs alternating with bright chords. And lurking in the background, bassist Dominic Duval gently warps the tunes with unusual walking lines and knotty solos.
