O’s Notes: Smooth jazz saxophonist Steve Cole brings us a fresh set of ten tunes that are instantly familiar, fun and helping usher in new summer memories. We especially enjoyed the groove on “Loves Me, Lives Me Not”, “Wayman” and “It’s A House Party”, the latter two with Ricky Peterson playing organ. Producer David Mann handles all other keyboards, synth bass. electronic drums, sax and horn arrangements. Mel Brown adds bass on four selections with Mark Egan (b) and Todd Sucherman (d) naturalizing “Justice”.
