Gary Palmer – Love Me Again

Sept. 13, 2015

Saxophonist Gary Palmer, who also serves as a colonel in Broward County, FL’s Department of Detention, demonstrates here that he does in Gary Palmerfact have a style in his musical delivery that can arrest one’s attention. Cool and buoyant in spots while being enticingly smooth with sassy and sultry grooves in others,his new release Love Me Again is full of the kind of musical calling power c-jazzers love. This saxman belts out crystal clear jazz notes and runs in a real attempt to reach that place deep within you.

From his lead track, the reggae-laced “Island Breeze,” through the catchy upbeat title track featuring the convincing vocals of one Julia Foster through his impassioned request for the target of his affection to “Give Me Your Heart” through the up-tempo “Step in the Name of Jazz” (another very contagious track) and beyond, Palmer knows which buttons to push to be effective with you, your heart, and your dancing shoes.

With impressive sax work and a band of strong musicians, Palmer has a bountiful recipe for success with this release. He is that musician on whom you just may want to keep your eyes and ears tuned.

If one is going to “moonlight” as a musician while holding down another responsible day job, you would hope that he’s good at it. Colonel Palmer has answered that question with this album. – Ronald Jackson
