O’s Notes: Australian jazz saxophonist Troy Roberts takes the lead role in a quintet including Silvano Monasterios (p), Eric England (b), Tim Jago (g) and Dave Chiverton (d). Roberts composed all of the music and it’s all-good. The addition of Jago adds an element of fusion not present in his prior band, a quartet. We listened to“Nu Jive Perspective“repeatedly in a number of different settings. It is super, funky fusion with syncopated beats that are infectious!
