It’s not uncommon for contemporary jazz composers to blur lines between genres, but Lisa Hoppe’s YSOP gleefully destroys the genre fence, bashing through the wall of a jazz pub and into a rock club, sneaking in the window of a choir rehearsal, and skipping into a playground where kids are banging on cans and chanting. Faking An Imperfect Utopia displays an acrobatic dexterity that’s playfully and astoundingly light. The performers exhibit both technical virtuosity and musical understanding of each genre while creating a sound that is YSOP’s alone. (Paul Brody)
