“Miles illustrates his depth as a musician, collaborator and composer” O’s Place reviews Miles Donahue’s The Bug

By: D. Oscar Gomez
O’s Notes: The Bug is mostly a modern jazz session featuring the compositions of producer Miles Donahue who plays alto sax, flugelhorn and trumpet on this outing. The title track is a little bit more contemporary with a really cool swag to it courtesy of drummer Larry Finn and guitarist Mike Stern. They bring that same jazz-fusion groove to “Hawthorne Highway” and “Swamp House”. Ralph Peterson handles drumming duty of all other selections along with pianist Tim Ray and bassist Tamil Shmerling. Guest Jerry Bergonzi adds tenor and soprano sax on four selections notably on “Clifford” paralleling Donahue’s strong work on flugelhorn. Miles illustrates his depth as a musician, collaborator and composer on this set. There’s a lot here!
