Album Review

Musical jack-of-all-trades Jamie Saft is a mainstay of New York's downtown crowd, bringing to the proceedings a CV that takes in jazz instruction at the New England Conservatory of Music, stints as a pianist in two John Adams' operas, and latter-day work with both Bobby Previte's Latin for Travelers and Peter Epstein's quartet.

Black metal fans and Rastas hanging out together? Maybe.
