O’s Notes: Drummer Jeff Williams leads a sextet with special guest Gonalo Marquez (t), John O’Gallagher (a sax), Josh Arcoleo (t sax), Kit Downes (p) and Sam Lasserson (b). They play seven Williams originals; mostly hard bop tunes extracting the most from each of the musicians. We enjoyed “Under The Radar” and “Cancão do Amolador” most in a set with varied pace and feverish intensity. They end on a high note with “Double Life” capping a fine set.
