O’s Notes: Gordon Grdina plays oud and guitar combining free jazz with Arabic classical music. He invites Mat Maneri (viola), Shahzad Ismaily (b, Moog) and Christian Lillinger (d) to form Square Peg on Klotski, his latest release. There are eight originals that are edgy, spontaneous and at times challenging. Best bet is “Joy Ride”.
