O’s Notes: Pianist Shedrick Mitchell leads a group with bassist Burniss Travis, drummer Charles Haynes, Immanuel Wilkins on sax and guitarist Nir Felder providing meaningful messages through music and voice. Aaron Marcellus adds vocals on “The Don Melody” and “What Do You Say” that also features Ayana George. We liked the mellow groove of “Memories” featuring Felder, the rousing piano and bass groove on “E.A.D.B.” with Wilkins leading the melody. There is a touch of gospel on “Faith” and consciousness on “Black Lives Matter” with spoken word over hip hop on “Human Kin”. Excellent performance!
