Mike MacArthur, 2006, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: R&B+Jazz
O’s Notes: MacArthur spent about two years making this CD and it was time well spent. He mixes three originals with five covers of classic pop tunes for a well-rounded effort. Among the best are “Peg”, with Rick Derringer playing the guitar solo, “Sugar” and “Georgia”. They open with the funky title track and the groove stays hot all the way through. Mike plays sax and is supported by Peter Mongaya (g), Ron Reinhardt (keyboards) and Dave Reinhardt (d). This one stayed in our car changer for four months!
