Chris Byars: Photos in Black, White and Gray

Though the CD bears his name, saxophonist Byars allows his quartet to solo, at length, on each of the album’s eight tracks. This could be an asset, but the musicians sound like they’re wandering through each instrument, trying to grab inspiration from the air.

Wolfgang Muthspiel and Brian Blade: Friendly Travelers

Friendly Travelers is an album of contrasts. Looped effects and speeding arpeggios add a needed grit to the album’s overall pleasant aura.

Arturo Sandoval: Rumba Palace

Arturo excises technical fireworks for an album of danceable big band charts.
