To exciting ends, Jimmy Sommers covers all the bases on his 14-track CD. Sommers is a saxophonist, but this is not your typical saxophone CD. He sprays to all fields with smooth-jazz, electronica, downtempo, R&B and even classic lounge on his first project in four years. And just to throw one more element into the mix, he’s added the title track to 2003’s Lovelife into the stew. It’s a remix of the song with the baby-girl vocals of Macy Gray.
