O’s Notes: Will is a smooth sax player with a funky rhythm section behind him. He plays the sax with a lot of passion, wailing to punctuate the accents. He includes cool covers of “Whatcha See Is Whatcha Get”, and “I’ll Be Around” that will kindle memories for many of us. But there’s enough new material written by Donato and drummer/vocalist/producer Rogerio Jardim to grab the club beat crowd. We especially liked “More Sway” a take off on “More Bounce”.
