O’s Notes: Paul Jackson plays bass and he gets right down to business on the title track, a funky hip hop laced tune with a lot of punch. His stick, a custom bass, says Bad Ass on the bridge and the sounds coming out of it justify the title! “Hey Lou” is a cooler track with vocals from Tony Adamo and Ernie Watts on sax. Those are appetizers to a lot of good old-fashioned R&B-laced jazz with old school vocals and a dose of Hip Hop to bring it into 2006.
