O’s Notes: Saxophonist Jeff Coffin assembles The Mu’tet featuring Bill Fanning (t), Kofi Burbridge (keyboards), Jeff Sipe (d) and Felix Pastorius (b). They play a cool mix of blues and funky jazz-fusion. The music is all-original composed by Coffin and the band. “A Half Sleep” and “Slow Glass” have a lazy blues feeling matching their titles. Special guest guitarist Lionel Loueke shines on two tracks, especially the highly syncopated “Loueke”. We also enjoyed “Low Spark” and the funky “Lucky 13” & “Backin’ Up” making Into The Air a winning session.
