Russ Liquid - In Love (2014)
MP3 CBR 320 kbps | Tracks: 15 | 61:24 min | 145 Mb
Style: Electronic, Beats, Jazzy, Funk, Dubstep | Label: Lowtemp

It’s funky, it’s earnest, and it’s full of syrupy disco synths and finger popping bass - “Speedster,” from West Coast producer Russ Liquid, is what you’d listen to while riding a gold-plated limo through outer space. Liquid, a jazzy multi-instrumentalist who is rarely seen without a horned instrument in his mouth, is currently on a summer tour with Gramatik - whose label, Lowtemp, will release Liquid’s next album In Love later this summer. If you love Chromeo but wish Dave 1 would shut up sometimes, you’re going to love this.

Chuck Mangione - The Best Of Chuck Mangione (2004)
EAC | FLAC | Image (Cue&Log) ~ 491 Mb (incl 5%) | Mp3 (CBR320/Stereo) ~ 187 Mb (incl 5%) | Scans included
Genre: Smooth Jazz, Crossover Jazz, Jazz-Pop | Label: Columbia/Legacy | # CK 86345 | Time: 01:14:56

The Best of Chuck Mangione collects various tracks from the smooth jazz pioneer's '80s Columbia recordings. While not as influential as Mangione's '70s output, his '80s albums retain much of what made him so popular an artist -- catchy hooks, lush production and his clear, crisp trumpet sound. Included are such standout tracks as "Journey to a Rainbow," "Love Bug Boogie" and "Memories of Scirocco." Oddly, a live version of "Land of Make Believe" and the single version of "Feels So Good" make it on to this collection. These '70s hits don't really belong here, but should satisfy casual fans looking for his most popular recordings alongside his mid-career stuff.

Genre: Smooth Jazz | Label: Concord

With Lip Service, Richard Elliot has come full circle as one of the reigning merchants of Soul Jazz and cementing his role as one of the great contemporary sax players in the world. While working on Summer Horns in 2013, he had the opportunity to revisit his roots as one of the founding members of Tower of Power by performing "So Very Hard To Go" and working alongside arranger Greg Adams again. This led to Greg Adams arrangement for the GRAMMY-nominated "Shining Star" on Lip Service.

Al Jarreau - My Old Friend: Celebrating George Duke (2014)
MP3 320 kbps CBR | 45:16 min | 107 MB
Genre: Jazz, Soul, Smooth Jazz | Label: Concord

Al Jarreau and George Duke were friends long before they became household names. They began playing together in the mid-1960's in San Francisco as Al Jarreau and the George Duke Trio. The successes of these performances are what helped to launch both their careers. George's tragic passing in August, 2013, inspired Al to record this loving tribute to his longtime friend. With the exception of the fitting title track composed by Jarreau, all the tunes were written by George. Guest artists/collaborators include Gerald Albright, Stanley Clarke, Dr. John, Lalah Hathaway, Boney James, Marcus Miller, Jeffrey Osborne, Kelly Price, Dianne Reeves and Patrice Rushen. There's even a song with George Duke playing on it!

Martin Taylor - Nitelife (2001)
Jazz, Smooth Jazz | MP3 320 kbps CBR | 57 min | 132 MB
Label: Columbia | Rel: 2001

Martin Taylor has done his share of label-hopping; after recording for labels that range from Linn to Milestone/Fantasy, the guitarist joins the Columbia roster with 2001's Nitelife. Produced by Steve Buckingham and Kirk Whalum, Nitelife is one of Taylor's more commercial efforts. Jazz is often blended with pop and R&B, and much of the CD is obviously aimed at the NAC/smooth jazz market. But Nitelife isn't without integrity. Although uneven and inconsistent -- there are a few throwaways here and there -- the album has more plusses than minuses. Nitelife's most memorable offerings range from the Celtic-influenced "Across the Pond" (a Taylor original) to sensitive interpretations of Hoagy Carmichael's "I Get Along Without You Very Well" and Edith Piaf's "Hymne a l'Amour" (a French standard that American jazz artists have tended to overlook).
