O’s Notes: Despite what the liner notes say, this is smooth jazz and that is not necessarily a bad thing! Mahon is the genius behind all of the music. He wrote, arranged, produced and performed all nine tracks. They open with the radio friendly “Ocean View” that sets the mood for the entire set. “Whole Lotta Stupid Goin’ On” is a cool funky track. The sax romances us a bit on the mid tempo “3 Wishes”. And the reggae beats of “Whatever You Want” offer a slight change of pace. This CD fuses funk, pop and jazz with electronic beats, keyboards, sax and filler vocals to arrive at a contemporary, cool, spunky and yes smooth mix.
