O’s Notes: Pianist David Garfield invites some of the best names in contemporary jazz to refresh some classics. They open cruising with smooth, brassy melodies on “Go Home” featuring Kirk Whalum on sax and Tony Maiden on guitar. Marcus Miller (b), David Sanborn (sax), Rick Braun (t), George Benson (g) Paul Jackson Jr. (g), Lenny Castro (perc) and many other stars make it sizzle on every track! The instrumentals are great and the vocals by Richard Calhoun, Lilana de Los Reyes, and Michael McDonald have that good soul feeling and harmony that warms up your spirit. Tony Pulizzi (g) lights it up on “Rainbow Seeker” with Garfield keeping it mellow throughout.“Outside The Box“is a winning set with just enough retro jazz and R&B to excite baby boomers while keeping the millennials at bay!
