O’s Notes: We caught Lou for the first time at Cecil’s in NJ last summer. He made a strong impression during the live performance and his album is like a well-polished encore! He puts his rich baritone vocals on top of 11 songs, a nice mix of covers and originals. The band led by Onaje Allen Gumbs (keyboards) is tight. Lou is among the select talented jazz musicians worthy of wider recognition.
