Tony Lindsay with the Michael ONeill Quintet
Vocalist Tony Lindsay is known for his two-decade-plus tenure in Santana, but he is also a singer steeped in soul and R&B, and his smooth, sweetly imploring tenor sounds utterly at home interpreting well-loved standards. Backed by a talent-laden quintet led by veteran multi-reed player Michael O'Neill, Lindsay navigates some fairly intricate arrangements with unassuming aplomb.
O'Neill has carved out a distinctive niche on the San Francisco Bay Area jazz scene working regularly with the regions top vocalists, including Tiffany Austin, Clairdee, and Kenny Washington, who is featured on three previous albums by the saxophonists working band. Featuring trumpeter and Electric Squeezebox Orchestra leader Erik Jekabson, trumpeter Mike Olmos, drummer Alan Hall, pianist John R. Burr, and bassist/engineer Dan Feiszli (who co-produced and recorded the album), the quintet accompanies Lindsay with fire and imagination.
