O’s Notes: Baritone Madness is quintet featuring three Canadian baritone saxophonists: Keith O’Rourke, Pat Belliveau and Garth Bane. They are joined by bassist Kodi Hutchinson and Tyler Hornby on drums. They play mostly original tunes with fresh arrangements of a few classics. The sweet, harmonized melody on “I-Yor” is excellent and they expand their horizons with “Part NOLA”, swinging hard on “Turbulant Trane” and the calypso beats of “Remember the Aramo”.
