O’s Notes: This venerable trio returns to the smooth jazz scene with BWB, their latest release. Rick Braun (t), Kirk Whalum (sax) and Norman Brown (g) are in sync and aligned with today’s urban vibe. They invite several guest artists to the party for more diversity including Hamilton Hardin (keyboards), Ralph Lofton (B3), Third Richardson (d) and Lenny Castro (perc). Ten tracks of solid, entertainment (vocals & instrumentals) that will spark your inner groove. They don’t disappoint us with yet another hit recording.
