Tom Scott - Them Changes (1990) {GRP}
EAC 0.99pb4 | FLAC tracks level 8 | Cue+Log+M3U | Full Scans 300dpi | 258MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Jazz-Funk, Fusion, Smooth Jazz

Purists who've followed Scott over the years may balk at such a commercial collection, but the music is as fun as the guys who are playing it, so who can argue? Scott wrote only two of the nine songs, and interestingly enough, "Desire" and "We Belong Together" are the least exciting tunes, thought they mellow out the pace a bit. Covers of the Average White Band's '74 hit "Pick up the Pieces," Buddy Miles' song as the energetic title cut, Earth, Wind & Fire's brassy "Serpentine Fire," and Coltrane's bluesy "Dahomey Dance" are party tunes all the way, and this band featuring L.A. clubbers Barnaby Finch, Pat Kelley, and Tim Landers help the expressive Scott bring the passionate funk to life.

Doug Raney & Thorgeir Stubø - Everything We Love (2010)
MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 7 Tracks | 41:16 | 95 MB
Genre: Jazz | Label: Hot Club Records / Vintage Guitar Series

This is the third album by Thorgeir Stubø released in 1984, and presents an interaction with the famous American guitarist Doug Raney, son of the legendary pioneer bopgitar, Jimmy Raney. Raney was at this time living in Denmark, and on this album Stubø made Doug Raney bring along the Danish top bassist Jesper Lungaard and drummer Ole Jacob Hansen. It was an elegant and perhaps more easily swinging quartet than the previous quintet from Jazz Alive...

Dennis Angel - On Track (2014)
MP3 320 kbps CBR | 43:37 min | 101 MB
Genre: Smooth Jazz | Label: Timeless Grooves Records

Having been brutal on some contemporary artists because the difference between them can be measured by the thickness of a sheet of paper, running across a true original artist can be like a breath of fresh air. On Track is the follow up to Timeless Grooves and it boasts an all star lineup including but not limited to Will Lee, Kenny Barron and James Genus. The tunes are all originals with one notable exception but the sound finds that musical happy place somewhere between straight ahead and what some consider traditional smooth jazz. A release steeped in nuanced textures.

Ronny Jordan - After 8 (2004)
Jazz, Smooth Jazz | MP3 320 kbps CBR | 52 min | 121 MB
Label: N-Coded Music | Rel: 2004

Signed to the N-Coded label after leaving Blue Note, guitarist and composer Ronny Jordan is apparently reconsidering his past directions. Where Jordan fiercely applied and defended his gritty fusion of smooth jazz, funk, and hip-hop throughout the '90s, it appears that After 8 backs off from the ferocity of his earlier music. Gone are the duets with Mos Def and the presence of DJ Spinna, and in their place is elegantly played, stylishly wrought, sheen-filled smooth jazz. The drum loops are still present, but their jagged edges are glossed over and rounded. While it's true that Jordan was going for a late-night groove sound, one that employed more traditional jazz elements like horns ("7th Heaven"), he waters these things down so much that they are of little to no effect in the overall picture.

MP3 320 kbps CBR | 53:37 min | 122 MB
Genre: Jazz, Smooth Jazz | Label: The Verve Music Group

Andreas Varady's eponymous 2014 Verve debut artfully celebrates the Hungarian jazz guitarist's prodigious skill. A prodigy, Varady has been playing guitar since childhood. Only 17 at the time of this release, he has a fluid, technically proficient style that reveals a love of jazz tradition, both old and new. However, rather than simply delivering a collection of well-worn standards, a task Varady is clearly capable of, here he delves into a batch of modern pop hits and original songs in a contemporary jazz style.

Jmichael Peeples - Enigma (2014)
MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 10 Tracks | 46:27 | 107 MB

The music on this recording came from a pure place. All ego aside, with nothing to prove. This is a "Feel Good" record. A fusion together of Funk, Jazz, Blues, and soul. The goal was to create melodies simple enough that the listener could whistle while bobbing their heads along to the grooves.
