O’s Notes: Trumpeter Danny Jonokuchi leads a big band featuring eleven different vocalists out front. They soften the attack of the powerful large ensemble and add lots of variety to the mix. Sirintip sounds wonderful on “So Many Stars”, as does Tahira Clayton “All Of Me”, and Brianna Thomas on “Summertime”, while Martina DaSilva soars on “All Or Nothing At All”. Charles Turner is the lone male vocalist singing “Blame It On My Youth”. Brass reigns supreme with strong harmonies, precision, and excellent tone.
