O’s Notes: The Jonathan Moritz Trio consists of Shayna Dulberger (b), Mark Pride (d, perc) and Moritz on saxophones. They blend classical music and modern jazz with a strong bent towards free improvisation. It is eclectic and rather adventurous. We gravitated towards the tunes with a structured backbone like “Ballad”, though it isn’t sited as such in their liner notes. Hats off to Jonathan for going out on a limb with a unique approach.
