It’s a really great day anytime Lori Henriques gets around to making another CD. This time unlike her previous two solo efforts Lori has brought the whole band to join her and it only makes her music more awesome. Piano driven jazz is Lori’s avenue of music and this time bass, drums, horns, saw (Yes an actual saw!), flutes, percussion, clarinet and more horns join her on this rambunctious outing. I love the opening of How Great can This day Be and how positive and cool it makes you feel just listening to it. I Say Woo is my sons Favorites with a funky organ joining in on the grove and finally Another Good Year which closes out a really great CD with a great trumpet solo. Lori’s stellar vocals once again shine throughout the entirety of the disc. If you haven’t bought a Lori Henriques CD yet this one is well worth the purchase. It would make a great gift for family, friends, neighbors and classmates as it it is the season…. I hope she submits this gem of an album for the Grammy’s next year as she already has my vote. I’d add it to my top ten-ish this year but it’s gonna have to wait till next year. But don’t wait to purchase it! Go support an independent artist and buy this music today! Be sure to check out the title track video below.
This CD was sent to me for reviewing purposes but the opinion stated is my very own.
