O’s Notes: Billed as “deeply grooving organic music rooted in funk, jazz and poly-rhythms”, we couldn’t agree more as this has become one of our favorite funky and uplifting CDs. Drummers Bill King and Brian Wilson, guitarists Cable Griffith and Nate “Silas” Richardson, vocalists Craig Akira Fujita and Jhakeem Haltom, brass by Christopher C$Welter (t), Jared Sims (bs), Lee Hamilton (ts), Ken Field (as), Mark Berney (t) and Mark Caughill (bs) are led by bassist/percussionist David Solid Gould on Record New Highs, a 32 minute dose of syncopated, funky music. It is simple yet engaging, even on the remixes.
