O’s Notes: Guitarist Jon Lundbom teams up with Jon Irabagon (sax), Moppa Elliott (b), Bryan Murray (sax) and Danny Fischer (d) to record a collection of five original compositions. They are a mix of free jazz and fusion that push the envelope. “The Christian Life” had a slow country western blues feel making it stand out. It is also the only song of five not written by Lundbom who coproduced the effort with Elliott. Our favorite of the lot was “Baluba Baluba” with funky undertones and a swinging groove.
