O’s Notes: Composer, producer and drummer Matt Slocum leads a trio with pianist Gerald Clayton and bassist Larry Grenadier for“Sanctuary, his latest release, yet another insightful, collection. Matt’s pieces draw you into his space, a place of peaceful adventure. Grenadier (opening ‘Romulus‘) and Clayton (opening ‘Aspen Island‘) have strong contributions, each contributing strong solos and cohesive support to Slocum’s theme.
