O’s Notes: Guitarist Jacob Deaton leads a fusion band with Akeem Marable (sax), Nick Rosen (p), Craig Shaw (b) and Justin Chesarek (d). Jacob wrote all of the music but shares the stage with his band mates. Marable wails on the title track and Rosen swings on “Hoexter’s Hex” to balance the attack. All six selections are good and Deaton performs well when calls his own number.
