ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Hailing from Dayton, OH, former lead guitarist from the famed Commodores, for ten years, Mikael

has now arrived at another leg of his journey and is launching his third album, “Grooveology (The Finale)”. This CD brings in flavors from Brazil, along with some Ohio Funk, to the sounds of Jazz one might imagine would have been played behind the doors of the Cotton Club back in Harlem, perhaps in the Jazz days of the Roaring 20’s or 30’s.

If you want songs with romance, Mikael has covered that too in his remix of beautiful “Sadie”, as well as in the melody of“If I Could”.
These are just a few of the love songs found in the midst. There are fourteen songs total, which also include his hit from a previous album, “Highway 105” as well as “All I Do”. Songs with the Latin beat are “Como Te Llamas” and “ By The Way”. The tempo in the first is wickedly fast and highly upbeat with a brass section that punctuates all the Latin flavors and showcases the brilliance of Mikael on classical guitar. Both of these songs are very exhilarating and sure to liven up any dance floor. Also, his title song “Grooveology” is quite electrifying and shows how well he blended in that crazy Funky sound from his days when he performed with Walter "Junie" Morrison of the “Ohio Players”.



One last song that we wish to highlight is, “Go 4 It”, which features Cal Harris Jr, on the piano, Mikael on the guitar, and John Michalak, bringing in the superbly sharp sounds of the saxophone. Cal has one magical touch of the keys that make them sparkle throughout this arrangement. John, really hones in his skills on Sax, while, true to form, our world class guitarist, Mikael brings it all together with his signature touch. The combination from all three of these artists, lead to one very solid recipe for a possible Grammy. In this writer’s opinion, “Grooveology (The Finale)”, is nothing short of Gold Standard We hope our listening audience will appreciate the selections as much as we do.

Grooveology (The Finale)
A very high quality CD filled with excellent songs. Ask me which is my favorite and it would be hard to state just one. Love "Jazznotes" which makes me feel like I am sitting in the Cotton Club. Want some Latin flavors? Wait until you hear "Amor Perfecto" and "Como Te Llamas". If you like great smooth jazz, I think you will love "Go 4 It", with Cal Harris Jr, on the piano, and Mikael on guitar. Let's not forget "highway 105" as well as "All I Do". Two superb arrangements. Last but not least, there is the beautiful romantic mood of "Sadie". All great compositions that has produced one stellar album.
