O’s Notes: Jazzphoria is an eight piece, seven-women ensemble led by saxophonist Jean Fineberg. Lance Dresser (d) is the sole man on the scene. They play happy jazz across a wide spectrum including the Latin tinged “Unfinished Business”, the bluesy “Dive Bar”, and the mysterious “Synesthesia”. They have the power of a big band with a seamless horn section and funky rhythm section. Fineberg is the composer for 10 of 11 tracks and catalyst for the energetic set.
