O’s Notes: Latin vocalist Alexandra Jackson plays a jovial set on“Legacy & Alchemy. The legacy is in the classic tunes and the alchemy is in the collection of artists coming together (posthumously) for the performance. There are seventeen selections spread across two discs and all are fresh arrangements with an abundance of strong talent. Paulo Jobim and Daniel Jobim sing on “A Felicitate”. Jesse Sadoc plays horns on “Girl From Ipanema”. Rod Temperton (keyboards) shines on “Our Time Now”. Al Jarreau stars on “All One”, and Miles Davis, Ivan Lins & Antonio Carlos Jobim surface for “Corcovado”. Our favorite is the finalé “Brazilica” capping a fine set.
