Jerry Topinka Music, 2010, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: R&B+Jazz
O’s Notes: Smooth jazz guitarist Jerry Topinka presents us with a dozen fresh selections. He wrote ten, arranged eleven and grooves on all of them. This is warm bubbly music that will bode well on many occasions highlighted by “Movin’ On”, the mellow “Flying Low” and the title track. Aside from the upbeat tunes there is “Song for Beth”, a ballad featuring Bill Harris on sax. Karen Rodriguez sings “La Luz”, the sole vocal track, in Spanish balancing a cool session.
