O’s Notes: Shape-Shifter is the latest creation from Andrew Van Tassel, a formidable jazz saxophonist, composer, and educator. His music could satisfy traditional, Neobop fans and contemporary jazz-fusion fans alike. He dominates the space on alto and soprano sax with strong support from his band including Rick Rosato (b), Lucas Hahn (keyboards) and Kush Abadey (d). Alex Goodman adds guitar on four selections. The music is mostly original and is easily embraced.
