O’s Notes: Pianist and composer Juan Andrés Ospina leads a large ensemble for six vibrant songs including five originals. This is a very dynamic performance courtesy of the luscious harmonies and accents from the horns. The rhythm section including bassist Andrés Rotmistrowsky and Marcelo Woloski (perc) provides a solid foundation throughout the set. Of particular note is “Todavía No” featuring special guest Paquito D’Rivera on soprano sax, just one of several strong selections on“Tramontana.
