O’s Notes: There is a happy go lucky casual attitude that prevails on this release. But contemporary jazz guitarist Peter White has a way of making what seems ordinary, exciting. He opens with the title track and we are locked in to his signature sound. There’re ten new originals that come to life with the help of Phillip Saisese (keyboards) and DC (keyboards and programming). “Love Will Find You” includes the whispery vocals of Basia though we wanted more from her. Duane “Smitty” Smith lays down an earthy bass line on “Temptation” to add some spice to the mix. Ramon Yslas plays congas and timbales on “Ramon’s Revenge” the sole Latin track before “Say Goodnight”, a reflective closing piece.
