O’s Notes: Saxophonist Rob Derke takes the spotlight in front of the NY Jazz Quartet, a vibrant unit that plays with a sense of urgency. This is hot bop with lots of modern jazz flair. Not all of the songs are burners with “G’s Waltz” and “Still Time” both examples of their work on warm ballads. Regardless of the tempo, they maintain their groove resulting in a strong recording.
