O’s Notes: Whether he’s belting out jazzy blues lyrics a la Louis Armstrong or blowing his muted trumpet, Byron’s performance is first class. He’s got an ample supply of wind which allows him to project strong sustained, crisp & clear notes. The rest of the band includes Bill Charlap, Peter Washington and Wycliffe Gordon, polished musicians who help this release sparkle. These ten songs are a modern approach to New Orleans style jazz.
