O’s Notes: Guitarist Eric Hofbauer is based in Boston where he’s performed and taught for over 20 years.“Book of Water“is a five-chapter story performed by his sextet with Jerry Sabatini/ (t), Seth Meicht (t-sax), Jeb Bishop (tb), Nate McBride (b) and Curt Newton (d). The music is an eclectic extension of Modern Jazz that is rather loosely structured. Nate and Curt have great interaction on the opener, ‘Water Understands Civilization Well‘ while Bishop leads the way the On ‘Ill Used, Will Elegantly Destroy‘.
