O’s Notes: Pianist David Helbock leads a contemporary jazz trio with drummer Herbert Parker and Raphael Preuschi playing the bass ukulele. We’d never heard a bass ukulele but we can now attest that it is a worthy addition to this funky fusion set. Seven of the eleven tracks are Helbock originals combined with four fresh arrangements. We enjoyed “…pfili Bist So Kuhelrund”, the peaceful “Horus and Jesus”, “AM – Anonymous Monkaholics” and our favorites, “Yellow Meets Red” and “Virus Ukulelen Song”.
