Michael Oakland is a Tropico / Jazz / World / Fusionaire. One reviewer of late put him as the perfect cross between Segovia and Jobim, but with a very "intimate" vocal style. "Reality Matinee" is Michael's most vocal project to date. A latin, samba, summer jazzy swing thing that is definitely on vacation. Happy tune time, but with conscious adult content worth repeated listenings. With the depth of a skilled composer at the pen, and a good sense of humor, it all makes for a great listening experience.
