O’s Notes: Jodi is one of the finest women bassists we’ve ever heard. In fact she produces some of the most robust sound from the upright of any player. She leads a quartet that coalesced during their days at Montreal’s McGill University before branching out on their own. They reunited while in Vancouver and the results are wonderful. We liked the energy of “Reaction” with drummer Jesse Cahill exploding. “All Too Soon” features Steve Kaldstad (sax) and a well thought out solo from Jodi. “RB’s Line” opens with Tilden Webb (p) and Steve mimicking each other on the melody before Jodi and Jesse join in to trade sparks on solos. There is good chemistry here which spills over to the listener.
