Drummer Brad Webb's rock-tinged melodies collide with pianist Oscar Rossignoli's dense nearly-classical harmonic approach, while bassist Matt Booth's impulse towards the avant-garde centers the three, keeping them from sliding too far to any extreme

MUSICIAN Born:

Don Suhor

Don Suhor played clarinet and alto sax in a stunning variety of jazz contexts for 55 years in New Orleans. Virtually unknown outside of the city, he was universally admired by local musicians as a gifted improvisor. On clarinet he applied prodigious technique and knowledge of chords to develop a unique “Dixiebop” style. Trumpeter Wendell Brunious said, “I admired the way he could go from style to style seamlessly and flawlessly.” On alto sax he was a fluent and inventive bopper, influenced by a cadre of post-WWII modernists who jammed after hours at strip clubs in the French Quarter
