O’s Notes: Chris Greco is a Los Angeles based saxophonist and composer. Standards, Vol 1 is one of three albums he recorded on gswfourwinds records. As the title suggests, it is a collection of standards with Chris Colangelo (b), Otis Haynes (d) and Tom McMorran (p). Greco’s improvisation helps reshape these overworked tunes into a pleasurable listening experience. The album was recorded in 1995 and remains current today. Highlights are “Bye-Ya”, “Softly, As In A Morning Sunrise” and “Yes and No”.
