The invisible hand by Greg Osby( Recording )

18 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On alto saxophonist Greg Osby's Invisible Hand, he embarks on a sonic excursion past the boundaries of time signatures, chord progressions, and prefigured tempos toward a universe of pure music--all the while joined by icons such as guitarist Jim Hall and pianist Andrew Hill. Bassist Scott Colley, saxophonist-flutist Gary Thomas and drummer Teri Lyne Carrington round out the band, demonstrating and helping define how solid Osby's own musical conception is. Osby shows the dual influence of Steve Coleman's M-BASE collective--where he made his creative home during the 1980s and '90s--and of Eric Dolphy, who worked with pianist Hill in the '60s. Hill's pointillism illuminates his enigmatic composition "Ashes," and his duets with Osby on both takes of "The Watcher" ring with a Debussy-like impressionism. Hall's hushed tones provide the right harmonic settings on "Sanctus" and the Latin-tinged "Who Needs Forever." Osby's sharp and flowing lines paint new algorithmic versions of Fats Waller's classic "Jitterbug Waltz" (a Dolphy favorite) and the standards "Indiana" and "Nature Boy." On those tracks Osby and company play the past and sound like the future. --Eugene Holley, Jr

St. Louis shoes by Greg Osby( Recording )

18 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in 4 languages and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El saxofonista Greg Osby es conocido por sus aproximaciones al hip-hop, pero también le gusta tocar jazz desenchufado y sin bridas. Aquí recuerda sus años mozos, cuando iba a la zona golfa de San Luis a "quemar" los fines de semana. Con Nicholas Payton y otros jóvenes pistoleros, Osby recontruye aquellos experimentos, cuando reinventaba "Summertime", o las filigranas de Duke Ellingtone. Aunque se trate de un homenaje a la música del Misisipí brilla la furia y la audacia: hasta se "jazzifica" una pieza de la cantante Casandra Wilson

Live at the Village Vanguard by Paul Motian Trio 2000( )

8 editions published in 2007 in No Linguistic content and Undetermined and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ses compositions originales sont souvent influencées par la musique populaire turco-arménienne connue pour ses improvisations d'une extrême virtuosité visant à gagner toute l'attention du public. Il se peut qu'il se soit précisément souvenu de cette tradition lorsqu'il a demandé au saxophoniste Greg Osby de rejoindre le trio 2000, dont fait également partie le saxophoniste Chris Potter. Parallèlement, il est l'un des percussionnistes les plus modernes et influents et, grâce à lui, l'image du percussionniste, simple donneur de rythme et de mesure, s'est peu à peu dissipée. Associé au producteur Stefan Winter, ils ont entamé leur collaboration en 1987 pour un ensemble de 22 albums
