O’s Notes: Guitarist Santiago Quintana leads a trio, Tip Trick with saxophonist Matthieu Donarier and trombonist Jean-Louis Pommier. The band came together in 2012 and has since enjoyed improvising together influenced by both contemporary and straight-ahead jazz musicians. Kiss the Joy is a series of songs that incorporate playful banter between the musicians as they frolic in the playground. We enjoyed the blues of “Réflexif” and the dynamics on “Cave Birds”. Of course, there’s always nap time, included on songs like “Lullaby”. They invite listeners to use their creation as a catalyst for their own introspection.
