It all coalesces in an unexpected hybrid: the organs versatility supports music more intimate and nuanced than were used to hearing, and the instruments distinctive sound buttresses ensemble textures of depth and warmth. The material comprises Oswanski's far-flung originals, which range from the pastoral ballad Milk of the Moon, to 80-80-8 (with its echoes of another innovative organist, Larry Young) to the peppy, eastern-flavored Ukrainian Polka. But the program also includes tunes by respected veteran composers Fred Hersch and Kenny Wheeler, and one (The Rain Song) from Led Zeppelin none of whom have ever been confused with Jimmy Smith or Jack McDuff or Groove Holmes.
