“Roberto Occhipinti's ''The Cusp'' is effectively the point at which contemporary jazz intersects with the many other idioms and traditions that currently influence it. The Toronto bassist, who is best known for his work with Jane Bunnett's Afro-Cuban groups, looks to several of those idioms here, as he puts his new, nine-piece ensemble smartly through the paces of Cuban rhythms, tunes by Wayne Shorter and Jimi Hendrix, an aria from Puccini’s Tosca and a three-part suite inspired by a trip to Mali. Occhipinti’s alert, bustling arrangements make it all sound quite seamless.”
