O’s Notes: Brian plays guitar and banjo leading a trio with Johnny Hatton (b) and Noah Levy (d). They merge hillbilly with jazz in a combination of originals and covers that is tilted towards the countryside. It is an unusual approach that could expand jazz in country music circles. We enjoyed “Cherokee” and the swift pickin’ and strummin’ on “Lonesome Road”.
