O’s Notes: Pianist and composer Ben Rosenblum also plays accordion adding an unusual twist to this modern jazz set. Wayne Tucker (t) and Jasper Dutz (t-sax, b-cl) play over a warm rhythm section on “Cedar Place” setting the stage for an exciting and unusual session. The marriage of vibraphone (Jake Chapman) with accordion and horns works extremely well on the title track. We particularly enjoyed Ben’s playful romp on the accordion for “Fight or Flight”. There’s a taste of fusion on “Philadelphia” and warmth of “Bright Above Us” broadening a fine set.
