Jazz repertory was dealt a rich hand when this Left Coast initiative launched back in 2004. Its ever-shifting membership has kept the chemistry fresh and this year, saxophonist Miguel Zenon leads the octet in celebrating composer Horace Silver. This rather rare New York visit finds a couple subs involved, but Zenon is the kind of guy who won’t let a note fly until everything is super tight. See what they do with “Lonely Woman” and “Sister Sadie,” but keep an open ear for the originals provided by several participants. They know adding to the jazz canon is important, too.
