O’s Notes: B3 master, Mike LeDonne marries his Groover Quartet with a gospel choir for a cool blend of grooving contemporary jazz. The quartet is a polished unit with Eric Alexander (t-sax), Peter Bernstein (g), and Joe Farnsworth (d). There are eight selections centered on Mike’s life and his Wonderful daughter Mary, focused on the power of love. They open with “Let Us Go” featuring the choir, Vincent Herring (a-sax), and Daniel Sadownick (perc). This is a unique combination with fresh arrangements as on “Ain’t Nothing Like The Real Thing” and “Put It Back”.
