O’s Notes: Kind of New is an obvious take on Miles Davis classic Kind of Blue but with a much more contemporary flavor. At the center of is all is trumpeter Ingrid Jensen with producer Jason Miles on keyboards. They open with “The Faction of Cool” and we fell right into the cool groove. They get really funky on “Ferrari” with Miles on the Rhodes. Jeff Coffin (sax), James Genus (b), Nir Felder (g) and Cyro Baptista (perc) are among the talented feature artists that join the party. Jason and Ingrid had a hand in composing most of the music and they will be showcasing the efforts this summer on tour. This is better than expected and worthy of recognition and your attention!
