Pianist and composer Helen Sung has made a big impression with her accomplished acoustic-jazz albums and complementary live work; she's also been known to plug in and let fly with an electric combo at times. Here, she goes the former route, at a gig celebrating Anthem for a New Day, a crisp, lively and eclectic disc featuring trumpeter Ingrid Jensen, saxist Seamus Blake, bassist Reuben Rogers, drummer Obed Calvaire, percussionist Samuel Torres and clarinetist Paquito D'Rivera—all of whom are on hand for these shows.
