O’s Notes: Jarel “Jarez” Posey is a young contemporary sax player fusing urban music with jazz. The hip-hop beats are catchy with radio friendly rap and sax from Jarez on top. Upbeat songs like “Let’s Get It On Tonight” will get your dance groove going while “So So Good” and “Just For You” are more smooth mid tempo ballads with tight beats. The soulful female vocal harmony on “I Like” breaks things up a bit. We liked the pulsating vibe of “On My On” and “Be Eazy” best. The content outweighs the heavy use of electronic instrumentation.
