O’s Notes: Certain Relationships explore a multitude of musical and emotional interactions. Drummer Art Lillard’s large ensemble is world class. Aside from fine work by the band, there are some excellent vocals by Hilary Gardner on “Heavenly”; Andrea Wolper on “Girl From Ipanema” also with Pete McGuiness on “Let’s Get Lost”; and Dominique Eade, Hilary Gardner and Mary Foster Conklin. The brass harmonies are a rich warm backdrop for the vocals and the rhythm section keeps things bouncing along led by Lillard’s energetic work on the skins.
