O’s Notes: This is the debut recording for saxophonist Shauli Einav, the young Israeli born musician who has polished his chops on the New York jazz scene since 2008. He leads a quintet with Shai Maestro (p), Andy Hunter (tb), Jonathan Blake (d) and Joseph Lepore (b). They swing hard on “Kavana” with Maestro dashing across the keys. This is complimented by the mellow blends of Einav and Hunter on “Naama” one of the beat of the set. They resume the upbeat pace on “The Damelin” adding a touch of funk on “Hayu Leilot”. Einav has definitely got potential for making a splash and we anxiously await his next endeavor.
