O’s Notes: Pianist and composer Ryan Cohan assembles a fine ensemble that includes John Wojciechowski (fl, cl, t-sax), Geof Bradfield (b-cl, s-sax) and The KAIA String Quartet. Cohan was inspired by his combined Jewish and Jordanian heritage, both rich in culture and plagued by conflict. The vibrancy of “Imaginary Lines”, “Essence” and “Sabra” are highlights in the six-song set. Originations is a warm and engaging symphonic recording!
