O’s Notes: This is a high-energy recording with Pat Daugherty (keyboards, vocals) leading the charge through thirteen original compositions. The music has a retro 1970s jazz-fusion vibe including the classic Fender Rhodes sound. The syncopated melodies and interplay between Pat and Tim Behler (sax, fl) is excellent on “The Black Hole, the Lasso and the Loophole”. They interleave a few vocals adding Deanna Kirk harmonizing with Daugherty. The pace is varied throughout the set and at times they push the envelope as on “Temple Tantrum”. The good outweighs the bad making this a good choice fir contemporary fusion.
