Overview

Although music like that heard on drummer Michael White's CD is marketed as "contemporary jazz," much of it sounds like Ramsey Lewis's recordings of 20 years ago. The hook-filled melodies, whiny sax by Everette Harp, the obligatory throwaway soul vocal from Phil Perry, a few pleasing but vapid melodic solos, the token jazz tune ("'Round Midnight") and fadeouts whenever the music nears the five- to six-minute mark are all quite predictable and formulaic. There is nothing objectionable about the music but nothing at all memorable or unique about it either.
