I Really Enjoyed It !!
I took a chance on this CD not knowing the artist or his music at all. I just listened to the audio samples, and I must say I really enjoyed it. Wes Montgomery style guitar, but slightly more urban and hip. Stand out tracks are Overjoyed, Black Fox & the title track. Smooth Jazz (from Maryland) Be What You Need To Be is a very plesant listen. I wish there had been more acoustic instruments on the release, but on an independent project, you make the best with what you have, and Laron has done this. Good Job!
