O’s Notes: Noah plays sax with Jay Stapleton (g), Dennis Caizza (b) and Edwin Coleman (d). The session was recorded at Buddy McGraws in Portland. They play like it is a jam session keeping the stage open for each of the musicians to explode as the feeling hits them. The songs have a warm groove to them that makes the music inviting. “Feel Like Makin’ Love” with the strong drum solo and Watermelon Man with Jay taking center stage are good examples. The album is dedicated to Noah’s dad and he plays with that passion on both versions of “Song For My Father”.
