A highlight of New York’s 2016 Winter Jazzfest was the debut of the OGJB Quartet. Barry Altschul, a one-time drummer of Cir-cle (with Chick Corea, Dave Holland and Anthony Braxton), is still a force of nature behind the drum kit at 73. Lake, also 73 and a founding member of the World Saxophone Quartet, is as expressive and probing on his instrument as ever. Fonda, at 61, and Haynes, at 55, are the youngsters of this adventurous group.
