O’s Notes: Guitarist Alex Wintz forms a trio with bassist Dave Baron and drummer Jimmy MacBride for Live To Tape, a live studio recording with no overdubs (like the old days)! The trio met while they were students at Juilliard and have been performing together in New York for over five years. They come out cooking on “Idris” for the late drummer Idris Muhammad, swinging on “Textures”, and relaxing on “What Me Worry”. Wintz and his band sound good regardless of the tempo leading to a satisfying session.
