Rebecca Cline and Hilary Noble: Enclave Diaspora

Pianist Rebecca Cline and tenor saxophonist Hilary Noble join electric bassist Fernando Huergo and drummer Steve Langone on this fresh collection of Afro-Cuban originals. Noble wails intensely on the opener “Crossroads,” then switches to flute and djembe on the intricate, chops-busting “Rue de Buci.” Cline’s Fender Rhodes adds funk to “A-Frayed” while “Iya Modupué” is an excursion into modal improvisation. They travel to Brazil on the sprightly “Chorinho Pra Lemanja,” to Cuba on the entrancing “Moab” and further out on the time-shifting “Mars Bars.”
