O’s Notes: RJ is a pianist with an appreciation for good music: modern jazz, gospel and hip-hop. Deceiving Eyes captures elements of all of those genres with a fresh jazzy perspective. The split is about equal between newly arranged covers and original compositions. The first half of the CD is more traditional acoustic jazz. The bridge between the two includes solo piano on “Total Praise” and the mellow “New Beginnings”. Act 2 is contemporary jazz selections highlighted by Cedar Walton’s “Bolivia” and “Frontin'”.
