O’s Notes: Midrash Mish Mosh can be interpreted from its Hebrew roots to mean interpretive chaos. In the case of the music on this CD, it is not quite free jazz but a festive combination of world jazz with fusion. Leader, drummer Aaron Alexander composed all of the music and delivers it with a talented group of musicians. As expected the drum work is excellent but also the brass section is very good.
