O’s Notes: Saxophonist Jim Snidero accentuates his quintet with the addition of Do Yeon Kim playing the gayageum, a Korean stringed instrument. He gives the entire session a taste of the orient starting with “Han”. There is some rather creative piano work (inside the box) to open DMZ” before the Snidero and Dave Douglas (t) get tangled up in a fierce exchange. Bassist Linda May Han Oh steps up with a solo on “Jeju” along with pianist Orrin Evans. Meanwhile Rudy Royston (d) keeps the pace with accents in all the right spots. We also enjoyed the jovial swing and groove of “Jenga” making Project K an exhilarating, Korean tinged jazz experience.
