O’s Notes: Russell K. Shores brings his bass to center stage owning the melodies on all seven tracks. The predominant groove is radio friendly ‘quiet storm’ with sampled riffs from 1980s R&B, fusion and pop tunes. There’s a cool arrangement of “I Shot the Sheriff”, and “Teen Town” has a nice pop. Shores takes it up a notch on “Tynet” working his bass hard! The band, Phil Chidester (keyboards), Mike Kocsacek (d), Tom Well (d) and Joel Guzman (keyboards), do fine job supporting the vision. In this case the remodeling is good!
