O’s Notes: Composer and cellist Jacob Szekely leads a trio with pianist Josh Nelson and Christopher Allis on drums. This is a combination of chamber jazz with a funky contemporary jazz groove to put a different twist on modern jazz. Szekely’s use of the bow makes the cello sing the melodies notably on “Morning Rush”. Allis shines on “Spoon Man” working his entire set. The unique mix of genres, tempo and style make this project an intriguing endeavor.
