O’s Notes: Drummer Ferenc Nemeth assembles a fine quartet with seasoned veterans to perform his music. There are eight compositions along with four interludes that allow for ample improvisation by the very capable cast. The music is neobop that serves as a platform for each of the musicians to take off. Joshua Redman’s sax is warm and mellow. Lionel Loueke’s scatting and fretwork is world class. Nemeth pounces on the skins with heavily syncopated beats and accents throughout the set while Kenny Werner’s work on the ivory is like glue keeping it all together.
