Hi all, Went to see Greg Osby about a month or so ago. Had a good time, great concert. I bought his CD 'Channel Three' during the intermission and have been listening to it intermittently over the past month. I enjoy listening to Osby's brand of jazz, in a way it reminds me of a lot of some work that Branford Marsalis has done with his trio (sax, bass, drums) in particular the 'Bloomington' CD, I've also heard some of Terence Blanchard's work which, to me, is reminiscent of the NY jazz scene in general. But I was thinking last week that I have no idea where to begin analysing Osby's music, starting with the 'Channel Three' CD. It sounds kinda all over the place, in a lot of places I can't even hear a specific chord progression or a regular 'beat'. This goes the same for another recent CD purchase - 'Song X' with Pat Metheny & Ornette Coleman. Incidently the personnel on Osby's Channel Three CD is: Greg Osby - alto sax Matt Brewer - db Jeff 'Tain' Watts - dr A little help please?
