O’s Notes: Saxophonist Benjamin Boone presents his third album of spoken word and jazz. The contemporary poetry addresses current sentiment around the pandemic, racial discord, immigration issues and political unrest. This collection of poets presents the issues, opinions and plight of what we face entering 2021. The jazzy, musical backdrop conveys the appropriate emotions performed by first call musicians including Kenny Werner (p), Corcoran Holt (b), Ari Hoenig (d), Ben Monder (g) and Eyal Maoz (g). These are messages that need to be heard.
