O’s Notes: The liner notes describe this as adult music and we agree that is serious jazz coming from Manasia’s trio. Jerry really swings on piano on “You Do Something To Me” and even with more of a swagger on “Witchery”. The entire band is burning on “After You’ve Gone” especially drummer Daniel Freedman. Hans Glavishnig keeps everybody honest with a steady bass line all the way through. These are young players coming together having played with more notable talent and now saying something on their own. Jeremy has four originals here as well and we’re convinced that what he is saying is worth listening to!
