O’s Notes: German bassist, composer Eva Kess leads a fine band in an effort to bring unity through music following one of the world’s most concentrated periods of bizarre events. Guitarist Cyprien Rochat adds rap on “Peculiar Times” opening this Inter-Musical Love Letter. Among the best of the rest are the symphonic “Intuitive Love” and “Wave”. Mirjam Hässig adds vocals on a few tracks notably “But Beautiful”. Kees blends elements from different genres to arrive at a harmonious vibe. If we could only infuse different cultures with the same cohesion.
