Zoho, 2013, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Dixieland
O’s Notes: Great music starts with great musicians and clearly bassist Art Ovrutski understands this equation. For 44:33, Ark enlists support from Michael Thomas (reeds), Michael Dease (tb), David Berkman (p) and Ulysses Owens (d). This is first call talent on the New York Jazz scene. Ovrutski wrote all of the music except a cover of “Milestones” and it pops throughout the set, all 44 minutes and 33 seconds. This is a strong debut!
