O’s Notes: Saxophonist Steve Wilson shares a peek at his live sessions at New York ‘s Village Vanguard with excerpts from his stint May 24-25, 2014. The music is lively and packed with energy as drummer Bill Stewart, bassist Ugonna Okegwo and pianist Orrin Evans dig in hard making a solid foundation for Wilson’s explosive lead lines. “Well You Needn’t” is a prime example. They take it down a notch on “Spot It You Got It” and even more so on “Perry Street” but even then the fire is still present.
