JAYNA NELSON With JOHN ESPOSITO/MATT SHULMAN/FRANCOIS MOUTIN/PETER O'BRIEN - Bloom Of Creation (Sunjump CD 09; USA). Like every other disc that I've heard on Esposito's Sunjump label, this one is another unrecognized gem. features some amazing flute and piano interplay with equally strong rhythm section work. . Throughout this disc the all five members of this solid quintet engage each other and play slow-burning restraint, solos unfolding carefully and consistently intense interaction. Hopefully we will get a chance to hear flutist Jayna Nelson playing around the town in the not-too-distant future. - Bruce Lee Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery
