O’s Notes: Ensemble Novo is a contemporary Latin jazz ensemble featuring guitarist Ryan McNeely, vibraphonist Behn Gillece, Tom Moon on sax and flute, bassist Mark Przybylowski and percussionist Jim Hamilton. They play six bossa nova classics and successfully capture the sedative passion of that genre. “Vento Bravo”, “Se é Tarde Me Persia” and “Cravo e Canela” are standouts in the six-song set that regretfully lasts just under 35 minutes. We’d like to Look To The Sky for another set!
