O’s Notes: Brian Culbertson (keyboards) has devised a winning formula for chart topping releases: write good music; highlight all-star soloists on top of a rock solid rhythm section. The latter includes live drummers Michael Bland, Will Kennedy and Ricky Lawson; bassists Alex Al, Jimmy Haslip and Nathan East with Lenny Castro adding percussion. The featured soloists are a contemporary jazz who’s who with guitarists Lee Ritenour, Chuck Loeb, Steve Lukather, Russ Freeman, Jonathan Butler, and brass from Candy Dulfer, Eric Marienthal, Rick Braun and “Patches” Stewart. It’s tough to go wrong with this equation.
