O’s Notes: Mr. Ho’s 23-piece band is a space age, pop band using digital techniques to extend the sound wherever possible. For their debut recording they focus on transcriptions of the late Mexican bandleader Juan Esquivel known as “The King of Space Age Pop”. You won’t confuse this futuristic sound with that of a typical jazz big band. The program includes classics like “Take the A Train” and “Sentimental Journey” but the arrangements are unique as well. It is for the cosmos-jazz fan!
