O’s Notes: Björkestra is a band led by saxophonist Travis Sullivan. This their second release dedicated to arrangements of the music of Björk, (Björk Gu mundsdóttir) a well decorated Icelandic singer-songwriter. They transform her eclectic compositions into an engaging contemporary jazz-fusion with generous use of horns. Becca Stevens adds vocals on several tracks as well. This is a successful transformation with a lot to enjoy highlighted by “Isobel”, “Hunter” and “Army of Me”.
