Detroit native Rodney Whitaker creates another songbook album of fellow Michigan man Gregg Hill on this enthusiastic album with Terell Stafford/tp-fh, Tim Warfield/ts-ss, Bruce Barth/p, Dana Hall/dr and vocalist Rockelle Fortin. Fortin holds her own on the rapid charge of "Betty's Tune" as Stafford blows out Butanes, and is fragrant with Warfield's soprano on "Interlude". Hall is big and bold as he rides the whip on "S'cool Days" and creates high hat heaven on "Blues For Gregg". Barth gets into Monk territory as he sways the blues on "Fan O Gram" and Whitaker shines brightly around Warfield's soprano for "Puppets", taking a solo around the funky soul sister Fortin on "Oasis". The toes were tapping for this set!
