O’s Notes: Ed Reed breathes volumes of his life experiences into these thirteen selections. Though they are all covers, he has carefully selected lyrics that resonate. His band is his touring trio: Randy Porter (p), Robb Fisher (b) and Akira Tana (d) along with Anton Swartz (sax) for the recording. All of them are world-class pros supporting Reed with dynamics, accents and sizzle where necessary. Ed is mellow and convincing all the way thru Born To Be Blue.
