O’s Notes: Composer and drummer Reggie Quinerly assembles a swinging quintet for New York Nowhere. There’s a sweet harmony between tenor saxophonist John Ellis and trumpeter Antoine Drye that lends to a warm, refreshing sound. They alternate leading melodies and solos while bassist Sean Conly and Quinerly set the pace with pianist John Chin comping and adding a few solos of his own. Ellis displays rich tone on ballads like “Dreaming In Place”. Reggie’s writing skills stand out as he engages the entire band and they overflow with passion.
