OSBY, GREG & JOHN ABERCROMBIE
SOLOS: THE JAZZ SESSIONS (ORIGINAL SPIN)
Guitarist Abercrombie and Saxophonist Osby take their turns in this stunning volume of the Solos series.
Guitarist John Abercrombie combines bop and free jazz stylistic elements with electronics utilizing phase shifters, guitar synthesizers and the good old volume pedal.
What has kept his playing fresh is his refusal to be chained to these digital devices. Saxophonist, composer, producer and educator Greg Osby has made an indelible mark on contemporary jazz as a leader of his own ensembles and as a guest artist with other acclaimed jazz groups for the past 20 years.
Highly regarded for his insightful and innovative approach to composition and performance, Osby is a shining beacon among the current generation of jazz musicians.
