O’s Notes: Composer and alto saxophonist Gaia Petrelli Wilmer brings us a jovial set of mostly original music on“Migrations, her latest release. She leads an octet that includes vocalizations from Song Yi Jeon and Victor Gonalves on accordion. These are peaceful renderings that form a suitable backdrop for reflection and relaxation. Among the best of the eight selections are “Crianada” and “Acuri” featuring strong contributions from Yulia Musayelyen on piccolo and flute. That one got our juices flowing!
