O’s Notes: We are enjoying the blossoming of 24-year-old, LA-based pianist and composer Connie Han. She has strong accompaniment with Jeremy Pelt (t), Walter Smith III (t-sax) and Ivan Taylor (b). Producer, drummer Bill Wysaske also contributes three originals to the mix. Connie shows her maturity with a warm approach across the keys on “Captains Song”. Pelt shines on “Dark Chambers” and teams with Smith to make “Nova” shine while Wysaske adds a strong solo on “For The O. G.” Don’t be fooled by the cover, Iron Starlet is a strong fresh set of straight-ahead jazz!
