O’s Notes: Greg (sax) examines the jazz sounds of St. Louis. He’s joined by Nicholas Payton (t), Robert Hurst (b), Rodney Green (d) and Harold O’Neal (p). They play nine classic tunes, all arranged by Osby, in a way that brings them new life. His formula works for both upbeat songs like “Bernie’s Tune”, “St. Louis Blues” and slower songs like “Summertime”.
