Adam Birnbaum
Travels
Smalls

Accomplished young pianist-composer and Greg Osby sideman Adam Birnbaum showcases his stellar originals with bassist Joe Sanders and drummer Rodney Green, including the frenetic “Jackhammer,” the off-kilter, Monk-ish “Three for One” and the poignant waltz “Kate the Great,” underscored by Green’s supple brushwork. The drummer’s hip, loose approach is highlighted on Birnbaum’s soulful “House Party Starting.” Green is turned loose on the aptly named “Urgency” and also on his own swinging “Camden,” which features guest soprano saxophonist Sharel Cassity.
