O’s Notes: Bay Area saxophonist Dann Zinn presents his fourth album as a leader following Grace’s Song. This time he leads a trio with Guitarist Chris Robinson and drummer/percussionist Peter Erskine. Eight of the eleven selections are originals locked into a modern jazz-fusion groove that is lucid and swift. The pace is varied from burners to eerie ballads like the title track. We liked the cool reggae bounce of “Tic Tac Toe” and “Voodoo” best. Shangri La is a creative adventure that expands Zinn into a new dimension.
