O’s Notes: Fresh contemporary jazz ranging from the cool R&B sounds of “When To Consider” and “For Daze” to the smooth passion of “Two Friends” with vocals from Dawn Eleeza Robinson. They also capture a world jazz feel on “Road Trip” with nice work on guitar from Dan Leonard. They wrap with an excellent soulful, blues number featuring vocals from Robinson backed by strong, rich harmonies from Donna Redd and Gwen Outen and complemented by Rob’s sax. All together this is a nice smooth jazz collection.
