O’s Notes: Bassist Martin Wind leads a quartet with saxophonist Scott Robinson, pianist Bill Mays, and drummer Matt Wilson. My Astorian Queen is a collection of nine selections, all centered on New York City and the Astoria neighborhood in Queens where Wind first lived with his wife. He’s been on the New York jazz scene 25 years now. Wind steps into the front line with several warm solos, notably on “Mean What You Say” and “New York, New York”. We also enjoyed the swinging take of “Broadway” featuring Robinson on bass saxophone and “É Preciso Perduar”.
