O’s Notes: Guitarist Chris Taylor is a thirty-year veteran yet this is his debut recording as a leader. It is quite a creative effort: racy fusion that shows influences of Weather Report, Wayne Shorter and John Scofield with a healthy dose of sampled electronic sounds and vocalizations. We enjoyed the funky amalgamation of “Ear to the Rail”, the energy of “You Know What I’m Saying?” and Steve Tavaglione’s fiery sax on “Bela”. Drummer Dave Weckl makes a guest appearance on “Here to There” adding a light twist to the mix. This effort was worth the wait!
