O’s Notes: JD Allen plays tenor sax and leads a trio with bassist Gregg August and Rudy Royston on drums. Bullfighting was the inspiration for the music as suggested by the title. There are a dozen originals that blend old school, free and modern jazz. The exchanges are sometimes spirited and at times posturing as if to size up the next move, much like a bullfight!
