“Banned in New York” is Greg Osby’s 4th Blue Note release and was recorded live at an undisclosed venue in New York City. A surprisingly good recording considering the lone piece of equipment was a “mini-disk recorder” placed on a table in front of the band. Nevertheless, Osby and his exceptional band flaunt their range of musical gifts on this fast paced up-beat excursion.

Greg Osby & Jason Moran
I am adding a new piece from Greg Osby's fine recording Banned In New York. The album has very "in the club" atmosphere, which Glenn Astarita explains in his review at All About Jazz.
Jason Moran plays piano; Atsushi Osada is on bass and Rodney Green is on drums. I posted the Ellington classic 'I didn't know about you'.
