O’s Notes: The Lunar Octet was born just west of Detroit in Ann Arbor, MI over 36 years ago. They pride themselves on providing a contemporary, relevant sound that cuts across several genres. Convergence is mostly Afro Caribbean Latino sounds but occasionally they throw in a dose of Mediterranean flair as on “Samba Over Easy”, and taste of calypso on “Subway Tension”. We also enjoyed “Flugel Tune” and “Until I Find The Words”. The band members have changed and are scattered across the US but they still come together to produce memorable moments, rekindling the fire with both old and new tunes.
