O’s Notes: This is an upbeat jovial set with pianist Greg Murphy leading the charge backed by bassist Eric Wheeler and Kush Abadey on drums. Malou Beauvoir provides vocals on “Sophisticated Lady” with a strong solo from trumpeter Josh Evans. She also sings the R&B infused “A Reason To Smile” with brass accompaniment by Jay Rodriguez (sax) and Corey Wilcox (tb) along with the classic title track. Evans mesmerizes us on “Fall” making Summer Breeze a memorable and well-balanced set.
