jazzman2017 Talk about vocals. Wow, what a voice! Beautifully crafted songs and a gifted writer of lyrics. Incredible blend of contemporary jazz, vocal jazz, soul and blues. Love "Something To Do" with its Latin Jazz feel. Blindsided #2 has a great trumpet solo. Then there's the beautiful lyrics of "Best Part Of Me", sounding personal and a song every parent can relate to. Kudos to the producers of this album! Love the artwork too. Favorite track: Something To Do.
