O’s Notes: The Power Quintet features Jeremy Pelt (t), Steve Nelson (vibes), Peter Washington (b), Bill Stewart (d) and Danny Grissett (p). These are polished jazz musicians with a wealth of experience and nothing to prove. They play eight swinging selections that are easy to embrace. Pelt wrote three songs; Grissett wrote two and Stewart contributes an original to go with covers of “We See” and “But Beautiful. The arrangements are energetic, unselfish and on point. Yes, they deliver High Art. While each member has successful solo careers, they intend to make more music together and continue touring as a unit. We hope to hear more from the collaboration.
