O’s Notes: Japanese violinist and composer Tomoko Omura currently resides in Brooklyn where she assembled a quintet for Branches Vol. 1. Her music is inspired by Japanese folktales and popular music but comes through as modern jazz. Omura shares the spotlight with her accompanying cast, namely pianist Glenn Zaleski and drummer Jay Sawyer on “The Revenge of The Rabbit”. Our favorites are “Konomichi” and “Moonlight In Vermont”.
