O’s Notes: Drummer Ulysses Owens Jr. puts together a strong team for Onward & Upward, his third release as a leader. Anat Cohen (sax, cl), Michael Dease (tb), Reuben Rogers (b) and Christian Sands (p) are among the talented team performing and Owens lets them shine! “Samba Jam”, “Human Nature” and “People Make The World Go Round” featuring Charles Tuner (vocals) are contemporary splashes in a sea of modern jazz. The mix of originals and fresh arrangements make this a balanced, enjoyable set.
