Greg Osby Quartet - London Toodle oo

GrosbyOsby was a leading figure in MBASE - New York's jazz movement of the eighties - where he established his reputation for a rich, passionate and rhythmically complex approach. Today he is signed to the legendary Blue Note label where over the last decade he has released a string of intensely creative albums. This gig finds him exploring a selection of newly arranged jazz standards.
He is joined by Megumi Yonezawa on piano, Matt Brewer on bass and Damion Reid on drums for a set recorded at Pizza Express in London Back in 2004. Osby has contributed to the homages to Miles Davis's 1970s electric jazz performed by Henry Kaiser and Wadada Leo Smith's "Yo Miles" group. The Village Voice critic Francis Davis wrote of his contribution to their double album Upriver, "Greg Osby superimposes his own brand of rhythmic complexity (one fully worthy of Wayne Shorter) on the rhythm section's static vamps every time he steps forward."
In 2003 Osby toured with The Dead, which was a reincarnation of The Grateful Dead for a full North American tour. He also has contributed in various lineups with Phil Lesh and Friends.
