O’s Notes: There are sixteen popular songs featuring vocalist/trumpeter Bob Merrill. He invites a formidable team of musicians to join him including bassist Nick Parrott, John Medeski (p, organ), Matthew Fries (p) and special guests Roswell Rudd (tb), Harry Allen (sax) and Gabrielle Agachiko who shares the microphone on “The Creator Has A Master Plan”. Other highlights are “Happy”, “Overjoyed”, “Compared To What” and “Imagine”. Cheerin’ Up The Universe lives up to it’s billing enticing us to keep it in the rotation for several weeks.
