O’s Notes: Chilean bassist Simón Willson is now based in New York where leads a band with Isaac Wilson (p), Jonas Essex (d) and Jacob Shulman (t-sax). They perform ten of Willson’s original compositions for Good Company. Simón expresses his passions across a wide range of genres embracing the blurriness and contrast between differences, extremes like yesterday and tomorrow, all wrapped in a single package. “Gracious”, “Calma”, and “Snacks” are notable.
