O’s Notes: Korean pianist and composer Sukyung Kim is based in Brooklyn where she assembled a quintet to perform her latest works on Lilac Hill. She defers much of the melodies and solos to alto saxophonist Ethan Helm and guitarist Paul JuBong Lee. We particularly enjoyed the swinging “Bluebird“ and “Summer Days” in the 5-song set that serves as a promising debut.
