O’s Notes: Baker is a young Australian jazz pianist who arrived in New York during 2010. He’s quickly assimilated the scene and released Underground in 2011. He performs in good company with drummer Gregory Hutchinson, Joe Sanders on bass, Jeremy Pelt (t) and Dayna Stephens (sax). Their groove is modern jazz mostly original tracks with a few originals. We especially enjoyed his arrangement of “Mood Indigo” and his piano work on “The Gypsy”. This is a man to watch.
