O’s Notes: This album will be cited as one of the best all-girl bands ever. Eh, forget that qualifier, this band is a collection of solid musicians enjoying each other’s energy. With a lineup that includes singers Dianne Reeves, Cassandra Wilson, Dee Dee Bridgewater and Nona Hendrix with Esperanza Spalding (b, vocals), Geri Allen (p) and Sheila E (perc) you can’t go wrong! Carrington (d) doesn’t disappoint us collecting not only a wealth of talent but also good arrangements crossing many boundaries and making the music accessible to many. In a vast sea of beauty we fell in love with the warm layers of “Wistful”, the rocking beats on “Mosaic Triad” and especially the hip-hop rap of “Sisters On The Rise”.
