O’s Notes: The groove is humming from start to finish with all band members contributing to the mix. Jarrett is playing piano with deliberate syncopated phrases. On bass Jorge Roeder is a firm anchor with drummer Jorge Pérez-Albela keeping time and holding the unit together. Roeder opens “Shake the Cage” with a solo before slipping into the background while Pérez-Albela keeps our energy stoked. All the while Cherner is tickling the ivories. There’s no a lot more to say other than sit back and enjoy it as we did, three times through before making notes. We were that engaged, and pleasurably so!
