O’s Notes: Alan Blackman is a pianist, composer and leader of a quintet that performs his Costal Suite. His band includes Donny McCaslin (sax), Max Murray (b), Rogerio Boccato (perc) and Frank Russo (d). The program is a series of movements that takes us on a journey of water and nature with themes like “Eddies And Pools” and “The Channel Marker Sounds” that accompany focal pieces like “Percussion” and “”Piano” that allow each musician to fully express themselves. It all coalesces in a session that celebrates the natural sounds of the instruments as well as Blackman’s depiction of nature.
