O’s Notes: The Saxophone Queen Fostina Dixon follows up the gospel based Here We Go Again with Vertical Alignment, a smooth jazz effort that is polished and shining. The core supporting musicians are Al Turner (b, keys, d, perc) and Monty Q Pollard (p). There are upbeat dance numbers like “Good Vibes” and passionate mid tempo ballads like the title track. Jeff Murrell adds vocals on two selections notably “I’ll Always Remember” and Ray Chew brings the funk on “Neckbrace”. Dixon takes charge on “Strutt’n Down Fulton Street” and then they “Strutt Sum Mo” making this recording sizzle.
