Odd Wisdom by US players saxophonist Donny McCaslin, guitarist Ben Monder and bassist Scott Colley with Berlin-based Uruguayan drummer Diego Piñera as leader and main composer is to be a January release two years on from, featuring different band personnel, Despertando. What do we know so far besides the bare bones and all of the above? OK. Nearly all of the tunes are Piñera's. Thelonious Monk's 'Blue Monk' arranged by the Montevideo-born musician is the closer of what is a New Jersey-recorded studio affair to be released on ACT. Photo: Gregor Hohenberg.
