O’s Notes: Tuba player, Jim self leads a large, Los Angeles-based ensemble in his latest edition of My America 2 – Destinations. As the title suggests these are hits based on cities, states and areas. The mood is bright and swinging with the blues on “Kansas City”, adding a touch of pop on “I Love LA”, warmth on “Georgia On My Mind” and bouncing on ”King of Route 66”. These are a sampling of the good cheer across a delightful session. We especially enjoyed the concluding barks
