O’s Notes: Composer, bassist and vocalist Miriam Sullivan (aka Mimi Jones) plays with drummer Jonathan Barber and pianist Jon Cowherd for a combination of modern jazz and reflection including nine originals. Mimi adds earthy, vocals and scatting to six selections. Soprano saxophonist Samir Zaria joins the trio for three songs adding distinct colors to the mix especially on “Fall”. We also enjoyed the playful spirit of “Lyman Place”, the energetic vibrancy of “One 4JB”, the youthful romance of “Happy”, the relaxed, cool groove of “Blackbird” and “Feet in the Mud”, a showpiece for Mimi and Cowherd!
