1. The Verdict


Due to his difficult task (to move beyond his Night and Day), he adopts Sonny Rollins' picture and does what he knows best: he writes some, cool pop songs.


You Can't Get What You Want show the pop sensibillities Joe has, the other songs are a very nice mix of Jazz / Latin Pop, it's a big shift from his previous album Night and Day, but maybe you'll like it even more.
