O’s Notes: Tangria Jazz Group is centered on the trio of Justin Hellman (b), Sheryl Mebane (d, vibes, perc) and Simon Rochester (keyboards, sax). Sheryl wrote all of the music except “Solar” (M. Davis) and “Freedom Jazz Dance” (E. Harris). Mebane’s Eleven are warm, relaxing tunes that have a gentle flow. We appreciated Sheryl’s percussive work on songs like “Gemini” giving the session more depth and variety.
