O’s Notes: New York based saxophonist Owen Broder’s latest project“Heritage“is billed as an American Roots Project. The music is soothing and well recorded featuring several standout performances by James Shipp (vibes), Frank Kimbrough (piano) and Sara Caswell (violin). Broder successfully marries folk, blues, and spirituals with jazz in a way that will please most fans in these genres. We also enjoyed the vocal selection “Wayfaring Stranger” featuring Kate McGarry and Wendy Gilles with Vuyo Sotashe. This is one of the more successful attempts at combining music forms.
