O’s Notes: True jazz fans appreciate the music live, preferably in a small intimate setting with great acoustics. There are several popular jazz clubs in the Greenwich Village section of Manhattan. Small’s Jazz Club is sometimes overlooked but this legendary establishment has reinvented itself with a series of unadulterated live recordings presented on their Smalls Live label. Trombonist Frank Lacy’s session was captured during October 2012 and it is packed with energy. The Smalls Legacy Band accompanies him and they all cook in an atmosphere that is faithfully recorded so you can feel the fire in your living room! Seven selections, three are Lacy originals, ALL good 🙂
