O’s Notes: Reedman Jason Rigby has been very active in the studio over the last few years. He’s appeared on recordings by Mark Guilama, Mike Holober and Christopher Zuar. He takes the lead role on“One“with his Detroit Cleveland Trio including bassist Cameron Brown and Gerald Cleaver on drums. This is a set that starts with a bit more spontaneous fusion than some of his work with others. Brown and Cleaver open “Dorian Gray” with a tight, deep-rooted foundation for Rigby, a theme that persists through the session. By the time they hit “You Are Too Beautiful” the band is striking more of a hard-bop groove. Rigby shines with his solo take of “Embraceable You” solidifying his position as a leader.
