“A Little More” is a real monster – haunting, warm and very summery. This is simply wonderful music. The track that is seriously powerful in a musical sense is “Closing Time”...the groove builds up in only a way someone with the stature of Dexter Wansel could normally pull off! Jazzy, powerful and totally beyond reproach, this cut really takes the biscuit. It builds up, slowly and surely into a really spectacular BIG effort full of soul and emotion. What a treat songs and albums like this are! That's not all. “Closing Time Duet” soon follows and totally floors you. When you think that the CD cannot get any better it does! Phonte, who you will recall from Jazzanova's set comes in on a rap tip with the KILLER mellow rap cut “If You Don't Love Me”. If only all rap couldn't be like this. Total quality guaranteed! The short and sweet “Stepney” will definitely be a winner for you; a tribute to the late genius, Charles Stepney, and one he would be oh so proud of. I can also heartily recommend the 70s inspired “Music” which almost has a Norman Connors or Herbie Hancock feeling – it really is that good! Melodee features on “No One”, and the breezy Sheree Brown type guitar bodes well. The Latin “Sacred State Of Mind” is a wonderful piece from the first moment, and I cannot find fault with “Higher Ground” or the fusion of “Heaven” either. Let's get down to brass tacks. This CD is ESSENTIAL. Along with Jazzanova is one of the cream albums of 2008. Miss this at your peril.
