O’s Notes: Israeli jazz bassist Omer Avital took the New York jazz scene by storm when he arrived over twenty years ago trying new concepts and pushing the envelope. New Song is a combination of Arab musical traditions with Afro American grooves. The funky combination is sweet, with strong performances across the quintet including Avishai Cohen (t), Yonathan Avishai (p), Joel Frahm (sax) and Daniel Freedman (d). The result is easy to embrace; a recipe that should be repeated!
