Ori Dagan’s “Sting of The Cactus” draws upon a much earlier form of twentieth century jazz. The inclusion of vocals is a bold choice, but Dagan’s vocals and bit of scatting here add an entirely new level to this composition. The robust piano and breakneck bass line that comprise Sting of the Cactus have this track going at 100 miles an hour. While each constituent element feels as if it is doing its own thing, Sting of the Cactus is tremendously cohesive and will continue to yield new twists and turns upon subsequent listens.
