O’s Notes: Jazz keyboardist Bob Baldwin has a penchant for creating good carnage with his contemporary jazz. Henna is his 31st recording, defined as a tropical shrub, used here as a reference to organic and natural feelings, a laid back collection that is perfect for the after-work-wind-down including a few selections to help you catch your second wind like “A Brazilian Love Affair”. Lori Williams adds vocals on “No Longer Lost” and “Club Life” a super 10+ min jam featuring solos from Marcus Anderson (talk box), Marion Meadows (sax), Tom Brown (t), Walter Beasley (sax), Nils (g) and several others! Baldwin dedicates Henna to George Duke and Joe Sample, two of his idols. They’d be proud!
