O’s Notes: Tenor saxophonist Alex Weiss leads a quintet with Dan Blake (s-sax), Yana Davydova (g), Dmitriy Ishenko (b) and Ches Smith (d). Marta Sanchez adds piano for two selections notably “Akira: Sun and Moon”. They push the boundaries on “Thread Your Grandmother’s Needles” before swinging on “Really Ok” in a balanced jazz-fusion encounter.
