Tom Boras: Three Houses

No house of cards among residencies shouldered by N.Y.C. composer-saxophonist Tom Boras. With big band, quintet, and septet, Boras forges heartfelt saxisms (alto, soprano, baritone) and plays flute, but truly transcends as composer-arranger of ten multifarious, powerful charts enhanced by soloists Tim Ries, Tim Hagans, Ralph Lalama, Conrad Herwig and vocalist Cynthia Scott. Scant liner info leaves us clueless as to whether this session produced by Helen Keane is his debut, yet, no matter which “digs,” Boras excels.
