O’s Notes: Portuguese improvisational vocalist and composer Sara Serpa leads a quartet with Zeena Parkins (harp, tuning forks), Mark Turner (sax) and David Virelles (p). The tone is dark and introspective with an abundance of repetitive phrases that can be impressionable or at times, trying. It is creative and unique geared for Serpa’s free-spirited audience.
