O’s Notes: Saxophonist Billy Drewes composed the music for this recording, a session that unites eight musicians from three continents whose ages span five decades. Drummer Jamey Haddad, Roberto Occhipinti (b), Ali Paris (voice, qanun), Salar Nadar (tabla), Luisito Quintero (congas, timbales, perc) and Michael Ward-Bergeman (accordion) join Drewes. They are an enthusiastic, performing band that brings elements from near, far and in between. While they have different cultures, they perform seamlessly“Under One Sun, a mild jazz-fusion. They results are a rich sedative set.
