O’s Notes: Pianist Dana Landry leads a trio with bassist Erik Applegate and drummer Jim White. Each of them has a connection to the city of Memphis and Tennessee where they first coalesced as a unit. Memphis Skyline includes reworked classics and a dose of fresh air with Landry’s “Cityscape”. The city’s rich history provides a wealth of great music to choose from and Dana’s choices are good and her arrangements are first rate. There are swinging grooves, burners, blues and even a little boogaloo with Landry tickling the ivory in all cases.
