O’s Notes: Israeli baritone saxophonist and composer Eden Bareket has been performing on the New York jazz scene since 2013 initially as a sideman and now leading a trio with Or Bareket (b) and Felix Lecaros (d). This is Bareket’s second album as a leader and it is sizzling. They play an exotic, funky set that is heavily syncopated. Each of the musicians gets their groove on, a testament to the unselfish approach and unity of the trio. Eden composed 8 of 9 selections highlighted by “Baccatum”, and “Night Creatures”. There’s a lot to enjoy here and though it was an early ’18 release, it remained a fixture in our car changer before this evening’s sound check (well recorded too)!
