O’s Notes: Guitarist Eric St. Laurent leads a trio through nine contemporary jazz selections. Jordan O’Connor plays bass and Michel Dequevedo handles all percussion. St. Laurent wrote most of the material with each of the other members contributing one tune. Kgomotso Tsatsi sings “Ukumamahteka” and Justin Bacchus sings “Breaking At The Seams”, one of the best tracks. We liked Eric’s work on guitar and Michel’s funky percussion on “Graf Grack”. Dequevedo also delivers a riveting performance on “Wild Intent”. Ruby has many different approaches making for good listening.
