O’s Notes: Japanese composer Imaizumi has been a music fanatic for most of her life. She first excelled as a pianist before focusing on writing. It is easy to feel her theme on each of the seven compositions. From the festive Latin beats of “The More The Merrier” and “Unfailing Kindness” to the more melancholy tones of “Lonely” the themes are clear. “Adversity” is the most complex tune of the set starting in free jazz mode and then mellowing into more cool fusion. The wrap the set with “Another Day” a beautiful ballad sung by Jeremy Ragsdale. Chie has a lot of talent and we look forward to more from her.
