O’s Notes: Port of Veracruz native, Patricia Brennan plays marimba, vibes and electronics on More Touch, her latest release. She leads a quartet with Mauricio Herrera (perc), Kim Cass (b) and Marcus Gilmore (d). The ten Brennan originals are heavily syncopated, free jazz that is galactic but accessible, drawing listeners in on “Space For Hour” and provoking deep thoughts elsewhere. Of note are “Square Bimagic”, “Sizigia”, and “Convergences” with a strong opening solo from Cass.
