Review: Morim, an Israeli guitarist and composer, has a refined technique and an original style that combines timbric elegance and groove. And here is I.M, a collection of original compositions,.The dense and multidimensional melodies created by Morim, often played in unison with O'Farrill's trumpet, hit the mark. The effective arrangements are striking, played more on subtracting than on adding. Morim, on the other hand, is not an intrusive leader, but leaves plenty of room for the other soloists of the band.
