Groove Elation, 2008, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: R&B+Jazz
O’s Notes: Smooth saxophonist Erly Thornton puts together a dozen songs that reflect his life experiences. We liked the festive beats of “Mura de Cozumel” inspired by the beauty of the sun reflecting off of the Mayan water and the soul of “With You By My Side”. There are also cool covers of “Fantasy” and “Wishing On A Star”. These are all bright, jovial experiences that set a positive mood.
