iTunes Review

The title for Eric Darius’s sixth album is as much a manifesto as a catchy phrase. Using an assortment of top-tier producers, the tenor saxophonist/singer/composer sidesteps the saccharine production values that populated contemporary jazz of the past in favor of a well-honed blend of organic acoustic instruments and some modern hip-hop and R&B touches.

Also check out the moody cover of Barry White’s “Can’t Get Enough of Your Love” and “Heaven Sent,” which sounds like classic Stevie Wonder.
