The tried and true quintet formation, set in stone by alto saxophonist Charlie Parker and trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie in the late 1940s, is back in 2022 with the Reno, Nevada-based Manzanita Quintet.

So how do they give a fresh shine to a sound that could be considered “done to death?” On Osmosis the guys go at it with some fresh compositions, four by the group’s bassist, Hans Halt, two more from their saxophonist, Peter Epstein, one from trumpeter Josh D. Reed and another from keyboardist Adam Benjamin. That done, the group wraps things up with the familiar: Thelonious Monk’s “Bemsha Swing ” and Charlie Haden’s “Silence.”

Opening with “Hansepts,” the group slips into stealth mode, prowling around the studio with a chip on its shoulder, then burning the place down on saxophonist Peter Espsteins’s turn in the spotlight. It then becomes a collective onslaught that dissipates into an introspective section—back to the prowl.
