O’s Notes: Pushing The World Away is jazz saxophonist Kenny Garrett’s latest release. Kenny engages a solid team of young musicians for this album to perform his latest set of compositions and arrangements. He views the work as an escape from the rage and continuous distractions of daily life. We hear touches of fury on the racey opener, “A Side Order of Hijiki” establishing an energetic pace before giving us a cool taste of the Caribbean on “Chucho’s Mambo” and then soothing us on “Brother Brown” and the title track. Garrett brings us into his zone truly escaping the hustle bustle in an enjoyable set.
