Posi-Tone, 2021, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Bebop
O’s Notes: New Sounds is the 2nd edition of New Faces, a collective showcase of Posi-Tone artists playing new music and hits from their catalog. Brandon Lee (t), Markus Howell (a-sax), Nicole Glover (t-sax), Caili O’Doherty (p), Adi Meyerson (b) and Cory Cox (d). Producer Marc Free channeled their energy to arrive at this rich set. They open with “Shades of Brown” where the rhythm section sets a strong foundation. We enjoyed the dueling saxophones on “Stop Gap”, a prelude to the glorious, harmonized brass on “Trapezoid” and the swinging “Second Wind”. They also sound good on warm ballads like the lazy “Blues For Tangier”.
