O’s Notes: Bassist Jimmy Haslip, keyboardist Jeff Lorber and singer/ headliner Peggy Duquesnel produce Seems Like I Know You. Rick Braun (t) also plays a strong role! Before we pressed play we knew there would be at least a few sparks and we weren’t disappointed. “Bird On A Leash” and “That’s How It Always Goes” have that cool relaxed swagger we’ve come to expect from Lorber and Haslip with the punchy “When I Think Of You” poised for the radio. There’s a sweet cover of “Rainy Days and Mondays” as well. Our only disappointment is that the session is only 5 tracks and just shy of 23 minutes; rather unusual theses days.
