O’s Notes: French guitarist Jean-Philippe Grégoire leads a quartet with Baptiste Herbin (sax), Martin Guimbellot (b) and Nicolas Charlier (d). They glide through ten modern bop tunes with a good mix of tempos. Eight are fresh new originals by Grégoire. Herbin does a fine job especially on “One For Mr. K” one of the highlights of a strong session, one where the group sound is a unified front.
