O’s Notes: Pianist Jamie Saft leads a trio with bassist Steve Swallow and drummer Bobby Previte, both first call musicians. The New Standard is a fitting title for the all-original program written by Saft and including two collaborations by the trio. They start out swinging on “Clarissa” and maintain that groove on “I See No Leader”. They show a more relaxed side on the title track and on “Blues Shuffle” ending with our favorite ballad “Surrender the Chaise”. We hope to hear more from them.
