O’s Notes: Greg is a polished keyboardist, composer, producer, arranger and the glue in his trio for Bright Idea, his latest release. Bassist Eric Wheeler bursts into the forefront even when he’s anchoring the rhythm. He also takes charge playing the melodies on ballads like “For My Mom”. There are lots of fun tunes here like “Happy” and “Softly As A Morning Sunrise” with a captivating solo by drummer Jeff “Tain” Watts. Murphy composed 8 of the 13 tracks to keep the session fresh and engaging, more than just a bright idea.
