O’s Notes: Bassist Paul Carmichael puts together a wide variety of contemporary jazz tunes picking up elements of Latin, funk and R&B. They start with “The Destination” a funky showcase for Carmichael before mellowing a bit on “Sea Below”. Vanessa Hayes ads vocals to a few tracks notably “Wake Up – Spring Is Here”. We also enjoyed “Break Point”, “Go Go” and “Liberation Suite”. Carmichael does a fine job here making this CD worth repeated listening.
