O’s Notes: New York based Canadian saxophonist Quinsin Nachoff leads a trio with bassist Mark Helias and Drummer Dan Weiss. This is an evolutionary step for Quinsin and he’s at ease with his counterparts. They play hard bop, all originals by Nachoff occasionally stepping into free space. Their familiarity and comfort is apparent even in the midst of pure free form making the“Ethereal Trio“a strong statement.
