O’s Notes: Pianist, composer Francesco Crosara assembles a fine team of musicians for Circular Motion. There are three distinct trios The first includes Farkeo Dosumov (b) and D’Vonne Lewis (d) on four selections. Clipper Anderson (b) and Mark Ivester (d) join Crosara on four songs, and Osama Afifi (b) and Xavier Lecouturier (d) play on two selections. We enjoyed “Julia’s Tango” with this first trio and Crosara on synthesizer for the introductory opening. Anderson shines on “Gynopedie No. 4” with a fine solo while Afifi stars on “Kurama. There’s a fusion bent on “One Day Honey, One Day Onions” that continues with a touch of Latin on “Savara”.
