Odean Pope: Odean's Three

"The tenor saxophonist Odean Pope is a figure of eminence in his hometown, Philadelphia, and his musical legacy — as a disciple of John Coltrane, a jazz-funk vanguardist and an organizer of saxophonic timbre — has earned a kind of cult admiration worldwide. ... [O]n a spirited recent album, 'Odean’s Three' (In + Out), he works ... with the bassist Lee Smith and the drummer Billy Hart, an earthy and dynamic rhythm team" (Nate Chinen, "Jazz Listings," New York Times, 2/28/13).
