O’s Notes: Saxophonist John David Simon leads an organ trio with Pat Bianchi (B3) and Lewis Nash (d). They swing though a modern, neobop set that packs a lot of energy. Guest artists Andy Gavish (t) and Michael Boscarino (tb) add brass depth. The harmonized horns stand out on “Inside Out” and the bluesy “Sea Saw”. Guitarist John Hart makes a strong contribution on “Squirrelly” and several others. Bianchi keeps it all glued together on the B3, also handling the bass. This buggy is movin’!
