O’s Notes: Joel Yennior (tb), Andy Voeker (sax), Jef Charland (b) and Chris Punis (d) make up a quartet named after a historic jazz club in New Orleans. This is their second release and each of the musicians contributes to writing the twelve originals. “Mummer’s Day” has that New Orleans parade beat but there is also bebop, fusion and a definitive Latin feel on “Faces In The Sand” one of the best songs of the session. We also liked the racy “Ponus Ridge” and Jeff’s bass work on “0I”. They are one of the more creative voices on the jazz scene today.
