Vaya con Dios burst onto the scene with their premier album, simply breathtaking. Powerful lyrics, enchanting music, and fantastic sense of song. That powerful voice by Dani Klein... She will recreate the rythm of a slowing train by singing syllables of a line, she will lay her heart with emotion coming from the song, and she will recreate any situation or scene she sings about with her intuitive knowledge of the song's atmosphere...

Urban Knights - Urban Knights III (2000) {Narada}
EAC 1.0b1 | FLAC tracks level 8 | Cue+Log+M3U | Full Scans 600dpi | 597MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Jazz-Funk, Smooth Jazz, R&B

Most artists' idea of giving back to their communities involves some sort of charitable work or financial contribution. On Urban Knights III, legendary pianist Ramsey Lewis reaches deeper, forgoing the the all-star jam concepts of the first two Urban Knights projects (which featured everyone from the late Grover Washington, Jr. to producer Maurice White), and cultivating some of Chicago's most deserving local R&B and jazz talents. Most of the featured players have deals with Lewis' Ivory Pyramid Productions. These core band members consist of keyboardist Kevin Randolph, bassist Sharay Reed, drummer Calvin Rogers, and percussionist Alejo Poveda, as well as the all-female vocal group the Staples (cousins of the famed Staple Singers) and vocalists Tammi and Hardeman.

Kevin Eubanks - Face To Face (1986) {GRP}
EAC 0.99pb1 | FLAC Image | Cue+Log | Full Scans 300dpi | 200MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Fusion, Smooth Jazz

Kevin Eubanks' first album with a string section is a triumph of good taste, both in the guitarist's gently swinging work and in GRP chief Dave Grusin's unobtrusive, intelligent, unsentimental string charts. Grusin's gorgeously recorded strings seem to seep into the texture, filling the spaces with just enough mortar. The backings alternate between an electric group -- with Marcus Miller on bass and Grusin applying the Yamaha DX7 electric piano sound -- and often just Ron Carter on acoustic bass (plus the strings, of course).

Madeleine Peyroux - Bare Bones
EAC+LOG+CUE | APE (tracks): 435 MB | Artwork | 5% Recovery Info
Label/Cat#: Rounder Rec. # 460502670147 | Country/Year: Russia 2009
Genre: Jazz | Style: Vocal Jazz, Contemporary

"Madeleine Peyroux's fourth album isn't the normal mix of standards (contemporary or traditional) with a few songs of her own composing; each of the 11 tracks is a new song written by Peyroux, usually in tandem with producer Larry Klein or a guest. (...) Bare Bones is a remarkable work from one of the best artists in vocal jazz."

Gerald Veasley - On The Fast Track (2001) {Heads Up}
EAC 1.0b3 | FLAC tracks level 8 | Cue+Log+M3U | Full Scans 300dpi | 361MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Jazz-Funk, Fusion, Smooth Jazz

For his fifth album as a leader (not counting the many he recorded as part of the Joe Zawinul Syndicate and as a member of Grover Washington, Jr.'s backing band), six-string bassist Gerald Veasley pushes the smooth jazz envelope a bit. Those who like their grooves gentle and their textures lush will still find plenty to like here -- the rich strings on his cover of Stevie Wonder's "Do I Do," for instance, or the sweet and lovely "Goodnight Moon," written in honor of Washington. But there's a certain toughness at the center of the music this time out, and a greater willingness to let loose.

Andre Delano - My So Fine (2008)
Smooth Jazz | MP3 320 kbps CBR | Covers | 59 min | 138 MB
Label: Nu Groove Records | Rel: 2008

After the release of his popular debut Full Circle in 2005, this extraordinarily soulful, emotional, old-school R&B vibing saxman -- who has toured with Maxwell, the Osmonds and Lionel Richie, and opened shows for Peabo Bryson and urban jazz greats George Duke, Boney James, Norman Brown, Kenny G, and Peter White, said the way to change the face of smooth jazz was to "bring in new faces and be bold enough to take a chance." Joined by genre hitmakers like Greg Adams (on the sensuous Latin-vibing slow dance gem "First Dance") and Kevin Toney (the midtempo, hypnotic retro-soul of "Saultie"), he more than lives up to that promise on this multi-faceted, hook-filled collection.

Various Artists - Atlantic Jazz: Best Of The '60s, Volume 2 (1994)
EAC | FLAC | Tracks (Cue&Log) ~ 428 Mb (incl 5%) | Mp3 (CBR320) ~ 168 Mb (incl 5%) | Scans ~ 80 Mb
Genre: Jazz, Fusion | Label: Atlantic/Rhino | # 8122-71727-2 | Time: 01:09:52

Rhino continues with their admirable excavation of the Atlantic vaults with this, their second round of some of the label's '60s jazz highlights. In the spotlight are such instrumental heavyweights as Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Eddie Harris, Charles Mingus, Hank Crawford, and Yusef Lateef, and on the vocal end there's fine work by Betty Carter and Mose Allison. Yes, this album might have a tough time competing with similar collections from the Blue Note and Impulse! imprints. But then again, those labels would be hard-pressed to come up with a selection as varied as this: From the truly idiosyncratic Ellington musings of Kirk ("Creole Love Call") to a taste of Aquarius age jazz by Charles Lloyd ("Dreamweaver: Meditation/Dervish Dance"), this 14-track disc truly runs the '60s jazz gamut.

Ronny Jordan - Light To Dark (1996)
Smooth Jazz | MP3 320 kbps CBR | 52 min | 121 MB
Label: Island Records | Rel: 1996

Ronny Jordan's Light to Dark demonstrates less of an acid-jazz and dance feel than his previous albums, preferring to stay closer to his funky soul-jazz roots. Though Jordan continues to grow as a guitarist his leads are fluid and seductive, his chord vamps tasty.

Kevin Eubanks - Shadow Prophets (1988) {GRP}
EAC 0.99pb5 | FLAC tracks level 5 | Cue+Log+M3U | Scans 200dpi | 253MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Fusion, Smooth Jazz

Shadow Prophets was a marked improvement over The Heat of Heat, but it was obvious that GRP was trying desperately to find a niche for Kevin Eubanks. Despite a distinctive guitar style and an endless stream of ideas, Eubanks was again being molded in the same style as George Benson (the pop version). The inclusion of Mark Ledford also indicates an effort to ride the Pat Metheny wave that was so popular on contemporary radio stations at this time.

EAC 1.0b3 | FLAC tracks level 8 | Cue+Log+M3U | Full Scans 300dpi | 345MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Smooth Jazz, Neo-Classical

David Benoit is one of the most accomplished pianists, composers and producers in the contemporary jazz arena. But now, with Orchestral Stories, his musical universe has expanded to include this incredible offering of symphonic/orchestral pieces all woven together by the brilliance only this musical genius can do. “Most of my fans know me for my contribution to the smooth jazz format. Over the years, within that context, I have experimented with fusing orchestral sounds, R&B grooves, and melodic piano lines. Orchestral Stories best represents how I have evolved as a pianist, composer and conductor.
