O’s Notes: Madre Vaca is a musical collective founded by Jarrett Carter (g), JeanCarlo Mendez (recording engineer), Jonah Pierre (p) and Benjamin Shorstein (d). They perform the music of Frank Schubert on Winterreise, the story (a collection of poems by Wilhelm Muller) of a depressed man who wandered away from home on a blustery winter night. The music was arranged by Shorestein and it touches many emotions and associated jazz styles. We liked the racy brass on “Frozen”, “The Stormy Morning”, and the solos from Carter and Pierre on “The Crow”.
