O’s Notes: These guys have what it takes, a patented formula for success. They guide through eleven tracks and we new it was happening as soon as we pressed play with “Bona Fide Club”. The core players are George Hazelrigg (g, keyboards), Howard Zizzi (percussion), Tim Camponeschi (b, keyboards), John E. Coale (d) and Kevin Levi (sax). Levi’s sax mellows out the mood on “Soul Lounge” on top of the cool funky rhythm section. There is a combination of dance tracks – “Girard«s”, mellow listening – “B. More Knights” and ballads – “Every Time You Go Away”. It is a good session.
