O’s Notes: The core band is a quartet led by Osby (sax) with Jason Moran (p), Scott Cooley (b) and Marlon Browden (d). They intertwine with strings to get a unique orchestral sound. The program is mainly new compositions from Osby written to stimulate improvisation over central dark themes. It’s a daring creative take.
