O’s Notes: Brenda plays piano, sings, wrote the lyrics to half of the songs and composed the music for ten of the twelve selections on Right About Now, her latest release. Matt Aronoff (b), Jordan Perlson ((d), Steve Cardenas (g) and Joel Frahm (sax) support her. The program is a combination of blues, neobop and pop ballads; a blend that we found pleasurably entertaining. Our favorite is the title track.
