O’s Notes: This is as refreshing as the title suggests starting with the opener, a jovial tune that sets the tone for the entire set. Lisa Hightower is the vocalist and her voice is pleasantly set with compliments from the band. Guitarists Peter Sprague and Micky Maga provide accents and the brass section fills in with nice harmony. The rhythm is bossa nova and the program is mainly originals from the musicians mentioned above along with a new arrangement of “Midnight At The Oasis”. It’s a winner!
