The size of a group means nothing. There's as much fantastic music created by a trio as there is by a big band. This episode of OMJ attempts to prove that with sparkling new music from trios (Jason Robinson, Bruno Raberg & Bob Weiner -a definite must on my faves of 2020 list, Cuban/Polish saxophonist Luis Nubiola, and Rez Abbasi doing Django) to larger groups like Samuel Blaser live at Cornelia Street Café, Fred Lonberg-Holm's Stirrup and Norway's Barrage, to snarly big bands like that of alto saxophonist Andrew D'Angelo's DNA Orchestra. There's plenty more examples, plus a revisit from a seminal album that called for change back in 1994: guitarist Michael Gregory Jackson's Change: A Suite for Nelson Mandela. That message then is as relevant today, and I'm playin' the whole thing.
