Cape of Good Hope
Hillsboro Jazz (ASCAP) HMD1005
Jim Wilson, Keyboard with Dan Fogelberg, David Sanborn, Chris Botti, Richard Eilliot, Rich Braun, Peter White, Steve Lukather, Steve Porcaro and Stephen Bishop
Close your eyes and imagine you are on the sandy beaches of Aruba, the temperature is right, the sunset is absolutely beautiful and you truly know you are in God,s country. Everything is right in your life, in fact, things couldn,t be better. Got the picture, well that is where this album takes you. In fact, a doctor could prescribe this album as the antidote to stress.
Jim Wilson has compiled a who's who of Jazz musicians to make this happen. The smooth melodic Jazz tones simply sweep you away to that wonderful place that you hardly ever get to go. Cape of Good Hope is correctly titled as it simply bring hope to mind as you are silently swished off to that place. Just when you think it is time to resurface he give you, "More and More," Finally, Stephen Bishop makes every woman want to be Donna Lynn if not forever, definitely for 2 minutes 56 seconds.
