O’s Notes: Encounters is the third release from the Ben-Shir Group. Leader Shimon Ben-Shir plays bass and guitar and composed six of the nine selections. They swing on “I Like It” and “Tyler’s Tune” before settling into a lazy blues on “Missing Link”. Our favorite is the festive “What’s It Gonna’ Be”. Diane Wernick and Duncan Martin do a fine job on sax with Diana Fischer (keyboards), Amir Milstein (fl) and drum duty divided between Jody Bregler, Dani Daniel and Ricardo Nhich. This is a fine effort.
