O’s Notes: Akua Dixon is a relatively new face on the jazz scene, with a lot to offer from her chair on cello. This is her second release as a leader and it is on point. She leads a vibrant string ensemble over ten freshly arranged classics. Ina Paris (viola), guest artists Regina Carter (violin) and the late John Blake, Jr. (violin) make notable appearances. This will certainly be amongst the best chamber jazz performances of the year!
