O’s Notes: Filaments is a collection of ten contemporary soft tones written by pianist Julian Shore. Alexa Barchini adds vocals on six tracks and guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel plays on three selections. This is a soothing set with Alexa’s vocalizations working magic on “Big Bad World” and “Like A Shadow”. We also enjoyed the solid groove on “Give” but make a note that there are no losers here. Filaments provides many bright moments.
