O’s Notes: This is Japanese pianist Hiroe Sekine’s third album as a leader and it is a strong encounter. Peter Erskine (d), Andy Narell (steel drums), Alex Acuña (perc) and producer Russell Ferrante (melodica) are just a sampling of the fine musicians on“One World, One Sun. The music is a global presentation of jazz-fusion with contemporary twists like the reggae beats of “Sunshine” and a taste of India on “Soorya Ka Prakaasha”. It is a relaxing, insightful set.
