O’s Notes: Impressions of Curtis Mayfield is a tribute to the legendary soul guitarist and singer. It is performed in a context of instrumental modern jazz. Jazz Soul Seven is a formidable cast of musicians including Terri Lyne Carrington (d), Russ Ferrante (p), Wallace Roney (t), Phil Upchurch (g) and Ernie Watts (sax). They successfully reconstruct Mayfield’s hits sans the silky lyrics into a memorable yet contemporary soundscape.
