O’s Notes: Blue tones, a peaceful groove and adventurous syncopation that boarders on free jazz characterize The Inner Circle. It is intoxicating and addictive. Sax player Greg Osby reunites some of the key members from his New Directions band: drummer Eric Harland and pianist Jason Moran along with Stefon Harris (vibes) and Tarus Mateen (b). They push the envelope to conquer new territory.
