O’s Notes: Landrus plays baritone sax and bass clarinet and leads a quartet with Lonnie Plaxico (b), Michael Cain (p) and drummer Billy Hart. This is a fine unit that fuses warm mellow ballads like “Lone” with swinging upbeat modern jazz as on “Creeper”. Brian shares the stage with the band and brings his horn to the spotlight in grand fashion on nine tunes like “Soul and Body”, a solo effort preceding the line cover “Body and Soul”.
