O’s Notes: The sound of Here We Go has a familiar vibe, one that will resonate with fans of Pieces of A Dream. That’s because keyboardist James Lloyd was an essential part of that DNA for many years before breaking out with this debut solo release. He invites Najee (sax) on “Moving Right Along” and Gerald Albright (sax) for “No Holds Barred” two of several highlights in the set along with the funky “Y-Town, Y-Not?” This is Friday wind down music with popping club beats that can rejuvenate your spirits.
