O’s Notes: Don and Jeff Breithaupt may be the best songwriters you never heard of! This collection of their tunes spans a wide range of jazz and popular genres with a roster of all-Canadian singers and musicians. While these may also be lesser-known characters, we strongly suggest you get to know them! Highlights are the rich gospel title track sung by Jackie Richardson; Heather Bambrick swinging on “Maybe He Loves Me”; the blues on “Bad Influence” with Paul Shaffer; cool vocal harmonies from Monkey House on “Where’s Mantis Evar?” That is just a sample of the riches among the 15 songs that are strong evidence of great music north of the border!
