Dave Tofani Quartet: Nights at the Inn

The title of this breezy contemporary outing refers to the Deer Head Inn, a jazz-loving hotel tucked away in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. Befitting such a retreat from the cares of city life, session sax veteran Tofani and his band engage in some high-spirited, easily digested romps through reliable standards and a trio of cheery original tunes. Tofani’s tone is warmly welcoming, the music clean and precise, making for a set well suited to cozy dinner parties or sunny Sunday mornings.
