O’s Notes: Bassist Britz wants jazz to be more accessible yet not watered down. He achieves this by keeping the music vibrant and the tones warm. George Colligan (p), David Smith (t), Casey Benjamin (sax) and Sylvia Cuenca (d) form the rest of very good band. Sylvia plays the drums with as much intensity as any drummer we’ve heard! They swing on “Brown & Sizzle” and tap into your sensitivity on “Goodbye, for Dad” showing capability to perform across a wide spectrum. We also liked the vibe on “Oceans” featuring Britz with a lengthy solo and “New York Roast” highlighting Smith.
