O’s Notes: Andrew is a“native“New Yorker adding local character to the jazz scene. He leads a quartet playing hard bop, modern jazz on sax with even a taste of funk on “Cool Off”. The music is all original by Gould except “The Golden Ratio” composed by pianist Steven Feifke. They morph into a quintet for three selections: two with trumpeter Scott Wendholt notably “Mumbo Jumbo”, and Ioana Vintu adds soaring vocals for “On A Darker Moon”, a worthy addition. Gould steps up his game serenading us on “Song For Millie” and swinging on “R Train” and on the title track. We’ll keep“First things First“in our rotation for a while!
