O’s Notes: Upstream is an upbeat modern jazz set featuring Russian trumpeter Alex Sipiagin with pianist Art Hirahara, bassist Boris Kozlov and Rudy Royston on drums. They perform a balanced set with strength at all tempos. The music is mostly originals composed by the band members. Highlights are “Echo Canyon”, “Shura”, “Sight”, Miyako” – the lone cover, and the title track.
