O’s Notes: DC-native Max Light won 2nd Place in the Herbie Hancock Institute of Jazz International Guitar Competition in 2019 and followed it with his 2020 debut recording, Herplusme. Max composed and produced the album. Drummer Matt Honor and bassist Simón Willson round out his trio. The music has an eclectic but not over the edge, jazz-fusion bent, centered on Light and incorporating Honor and Willson sparingly.
