O’s Notes: Pianist Dan Kaufman leads a sextet over eight original fusion compositions on Familiar Places. Johnathan Blake (d), Matt Clohesy (b), Gilad Hekselman (G), Sam Sadigursky (sax) and Keita Ogawa (percussion) join him. Many of the tunes have a light Latin flavor with an appropriate dose of syncopation. We enjoyed the mysterious feel of “Dansesong”, the title track and “Farmington” in a balanced set.
