O’s Notes: Blue’s the New Green is saxophonist David Sills latest effort. He combines seven originals with a few standards in a bluesy bebop set that feels good. The band is a quintet with Larry Koonse (g), Chris Dawson (p), Darek Oles (b) and Jake Reed (d). Sills’ mellow tone is pronounced on “‘Tis Autumn” and “I’m A Fool To Want You”. While he swings on the up tempo tunes, we prefer the ballads.
