O’s Notes: Drummer, composer and producer Manu Katché assembles are fine team for his latest release“Unstatic. Ellen Andrea Wang fills the void on bass from Katché’s 2014 release adding a prominent and well-defined bottom. Jim Watson (p), Tore Brunborg (sax) and Luca Aquino (t) round out the core with guest trombonist Nils Landgren providing more than adequate support. The title track and “City” are flush with intoxicating syncopated beats while “Blossom” and “Daze Days” are more on the mellow side. Either way, Manu provides the appropriate infusion of sizzle.
