Two CDs that have in common both the playing and writing of two very different saxophonists, both always worth a serious listen. The first, as the title suggests, focuses on a cutting-edge local trio playing Jean’s music, music that spans the jazz spectrum. The other is by a 14-piece ensemble led by Masters, this time joined by altoman Lee Konitz on six of his renowned compositions including Palo Alto and 317 East 32nd plus Ram Ramirez’s Lover Man, all beautifilly arranged by Masters, abetted by solos from Lee, Celilia Coleman, Gary Foster, Steve Huffatetter, Bill Perkins and Jack Montrose. There’s lots to digest here. Both 9.5/10 (Len Dobbin)

… music that spans the jazz spectrum.
