O’s Notes: Guitarist Ken Husbands teams up with bassist Aaron Germaine and drummer Otto Huber to play six funky contemporary jazz selections. Husbands composed five with Germaine writing “Goodbye Eddie”. Aaron shares the melodies with Ken who runs his bass through a series of electronic processors to create a unique sound that resonated with us. The beats are tight with a lot of pop and a retro 1980s feel. The set is under 40 minutes, perfect for vinyl, and without a lot of throwaway tunes common on many of today’s releases.
