O’s Notes: 3 Play + is a Boston-based quartet led by bassist Josh Rosen and pianist Josh Rosen for their debut recording. Phil Grenadier (t) and Marcello (d) are the other core members. Mick Goodrick (g) and George Garzone (sax) are guest artists who add color on a couple of tracks. Rosen composed most of the music. It ranges from near chaos on “Happy Camping” to cool neobop on “How Do I Know What I Don’t Know?” Grenadier leads most of the melodies with a soft attack sometimes muted. We liked the adventure and creativity of “Bulletrain” along with the syncopation on “Buttah”.
