O’s Notes: Composer and pianist Mike Bardash leads a quintet that includes Deji Coker (sax, fl), Kenyatta Beasley (t), Gene Torres (b) and Tony Lewis (d). Each of these musicians gets a moment to shine in the spotlight on Polygon. We loved the last seven songs: “The Polygon Suite”, a series of well developed movements that touch many subsegments of jazz including modern, bop, funk and chamber. Mike’s work here is noteworthy and makes this recording one that will solidify his place on the jazz scene.
