O’s Notes: Soulful smooth saxophonist Boney James returns with The Beat, his latest collection of radio friendly contemporary jazz. He combines funky R&B grooves with warm ballads a couple of soulful vocal tracks in a set that is contagious. Our favorites are “Sunset Boulevard” and “Batucada” in a set that got better each time we pressed play. Yet another winner from James.
