O’s Notes: Mayhew seems to get better with each recording! She continues to surround herself with top talent including bassist Harvie S, Ingrid Jensen (t), Scott Harrell (t) and percussionist Myra Casales. The energy level is high from start to finish with crisp solos punctuated and timed to keep listeners engaged. Virginia wrote most of the tunes and they all have a groove that makes them easy to engage in. It’s as if they were already standards. Sit back with an adult beverage and enjoy it.
