O’s Notes: Drummer Eric Harland leads the charge with Voyager on Vipassana, their second release. Pianist Tylor Eigsti, Walter Smith III (sax), Julian Lage (g), and Harish Raghavan (b) return along with the addition of Nir Felder (g). The groove gets really funky with a hip-hop groove on “VI” and “Dhyãna”. “Singularis” is heavily syncopated fusion that rocks! Chris Turner ads vocals on the pop laced “Normal” to balance the fierce club beats on “Passana” capping a strong session with lots of variety.
