O’s Notes: Rob gives us a lot of variety on the second volume of Sketchin’. The underlying theme is fusion expressed through a number of different colors. The warm vocals of Amber Whitlock grace “Them There Eyes” including shadowed scatting with John Georgini on flugelhorn. Guitarist Scott Henderson takes the melody on “Gotta Insulator” and Rob joins him pairing the B3 in the spotlight on “Cold Duck Time”. Whitlock graces the piano on the ballad “Do I Love You” and they wrap with a mellow instrumental placing Michael Brecker (sax) on center-stage. Collectively, it is very good.
