Roger Smith - Consider This (2000) {Miramar}
EAC 1.0b3 | FLAC tracks level 8 | Cue+Log+M3U | Full Scans 600dpi | 367MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Jazz-Funk, Smooth Jazz, Soul

Ray Obiedo (as guitarist) and Norbert Stachel (playing tenor sax as part of the Tower of Power horns) help turn the throbbing retro-soul meets Memphis-flavored soul jam "Horn-afication" into one of the most memorable cuts on keyboardist Roger Smith's Consider This. Smith begins with the moody undercurrent of the Hammond B-3 beneath the bright, percussive brass, then keeps that brooding texture going beneath a call and response between the horns and his happy-go-lucky keyboard melody.

George Benson - Love Remembers (1993)
Smooth Jazz | MP3 320 kbps CBR | Covers | 61 min | 160 MB
Label: Warner Bros | Rel: 1993

By the time George Benson released Love Remembers for Warner in 1993, he had basically accomplished everything a musician could ever dream of: he has played with a who's who of jazz greats, scored big as both a jazz and an R&B artist, won numerous Grammys, and had his name become synonymous with two different radio formats: adult contemporary and smooth jazz. Long the bane of "serious" jazz critics, Benson didn't even need to think about it: he made music that communicated to millions from one record to the next - the man had a single or album somewhere on the charts ubiquitously from 1975 until the turn of the 20th century.

Till Bronner - The Movie Album (2014) {Universal}
EAC 1.0b3 | FLAC tracks level 8 | Cue+Log+M3U | Full Scans 300dpi | 348MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Jazz, Smooth Jazz, Soundtrack

The Movie Album is a career aspiration come true for Till Bronner, a record he's desired to make for more than a decade. His themes from Hollywood movies, classic and contemporary (with a TV theme thrown in), make this more a pop-jazz record than one for cinephiles. Co-produced by the artist and guitarist Chuck Loeb, most of the set was recorded at Hollywood's East West Studios with a crack band of studio aces, with the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester's parts recorded in Berlin.

Kevin Toney - Strut (2001)
Jazz, Smooth Jazz | MP3 320 kbps CBR | 59 min | 136 MB
Label: Shanachie | Rel: 2001

Keyboardist Kevin Toney is a superb contemporary jazz instrumentalist and composer who can perform a range of styles - including jazz, blues, and R&B -- with equal dexterity, and his album, Strut, is a good example of his remarkable facility. For this collection of primarily upbeat compositions, Toney combined his trademark memorable melodies with a variety of grooves to create an album on which his accomplished jazz and blues stylings are spiced with a strong urban flavor. Generally, this combination works; on "Karizma" Toney layers bright, chirping keyboards over a funky rhythm, and on "Secret Agent" his irresistibly catchy melody rides atop a rapid-fire dance groove.

Denny Jiosa - Inner Voices (1996)
Smooth Jazz | MP3 320 kbps CBR | Covers | 49 min | 130 MB
Label: Blue Orchid | Rel: 1996

With its edgy machine-generated funk meets low register ivory pounding, the cleverly titled opening track "Groovinonymous" leads us to expect an urban extravaganza, but Jiosa mixes these with hot and heavy rock licks, then beautifully textured jazzy passages (like the smoky muted trumpet gem "Lights of the City") which coolly blend easy melodies with dreamy atmospheres and lighthearted percussive twists. Jiosa covers a lot of ground, but his unique approaches to a familiar sound makes his debut a keeper.

Kurt Maloo - What About (2014)
EAC Rip | FLAC (Img) + Cue + Log ~ 273 Mb | MP3 CBR320 ~ 121 Mb
Scans Included (JPG, 600 dpi) | RAR 5% Recovery
Pop, Jazz-Pop, Smooth Jazz | CafeSwizz Productions #CSP0007

Kurt Maloo (ex Double, Troppo, PingPong) surprises with a refreshingly straight new album. His voice obviously feels comfortable in the slender arrangements, that work perfectly and rely on just a few basic instruments like guitar, bass, drums and keyboards. Although Kurt’s guitar definitely plays the main role in this production. You will hear familiar sounds (Drama Queen, Come Over Here, What About) without having a deja-vu, as well as two rocking tracks (Tumbling Skies, Sometimes Easy), which you might have not expected on a Maloo album in the first place. „Never Give Up“ though, is one of two dance tracks, that’s being chased to the fade out by Kurt’s funky guitar. When it’s over way too soon you have no other choice than to put it on repeat.

Warren Hill - Love Life (2000)
Smooth Jazz | MP3 320 kbps CBR | 57 min | 131 MB
Label: Narada Jazz | Rel: 2000

There are no surprises on Warren Hill's sixth disc Love Life. Hill is known for his soothing smooth saxophone playing, and while he gets tagged with the lite jazz moniker, he is really more of a pop artist than anything else. Love Life's title track features a horn duet with trumpeter Chris Botti, "Mr. Magic" is a tribute to the late saxophonist Grover Washington, Jr., "Why You Gotta Worry" touches on a pop-reggae beat, while "Mambo 2000" covers the Latin base, and rounding out the disc is a cover of the Commodores hit "Easy."

Reggie Codrington - Always In Motion (2015)
MP3 320 kbps CBR | 00:41:29 | 101 MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Smooth Jazz | Label: Rec Booking

This truly exciting, in the pocket 10 track set starts off with “Party Time,” which balances its dreamy retro-cool soul atmospheres with a bright and buoyant horn driven energy featuring rich brass flourishes and nonstop funk. Next up is the debut single “LA Nights”, which alternates dynamically between dreamy, atmospheric verses and the spirited, mid-tempo funked up hook. Urban jazz fans will also love the mid-tempo romance of “The Way You Move Me” (penned by Nils and Reggie and featuring the Codringtons soaring horn play) and the lighthearted and reflective, gently percussive “Out on the Road”.
