O’s Notes: Riveting, electronic, club beats dominate the landscape of“Stereotype Threat, the latest release from saxophonist FKAjazz (aka Samir Zarif). The band is composed of Lez Lemon (b), Julian Litwack (g), Justin Swiney (d), Noah MacNeil (keyboards, b, vocalist) and FKAjazz with several guest artists sprinkled through the set. JSWISS adds rap on “No Way To Go” and “Storytime Interlude”. Marcus Machado (g) makes his presence known on two selections notably “Angel Cake” including Lez Lemon (b). It’s a solid, funky, dance party.
