Acoustic Alchemy - Back On The Case (1991) {GRP}
EAC 0.95b3 | FLAC tracks level 8 | Cue+Log+M3U | Full Scans 300dpi | 318MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Smooth Jazz, Fusion

The challenge for any smooth jazz artist over time is appeasing longtime fans with certain stylistic similarities, yet searching for ways to keep things unique and distinctive with each successive album. Guitarists Nick Webb and Greg Carmichael (the principals in Acoustic Alchemy) kept the reference point of their steel and nylon string chemistry intact while always venturing the new agey jazz trappings they became accustomed to. Their fifth album features sojourns into reggae, flamenco, blues, country-rock, samba, and jazz improvisation, adding up to their most styistically diverse outing up till that time.

Lington plays with a plush, reedy tone, with subtle R&B influences. In fact, he used to play in the bands of soul jazz stalwarts Randy Crawford and Bobby Caldwell, the latter making a guest appearance on “Tell It Like It Is.” Smooth and lighthearted, Lington proves himself a contender on the Quiet Storm front his first time out.

Rick Braun - All It Takes (2009) {Mack Avenue}
EAC 1.0b3 | FLAC tracks level 8 | Cue+Log+M3U | Full Scans 300dpi | 332MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Jazz-Funk, Smooth Jazz

Rick Braun has built his career as a contemporary trumpeter based on the basic concepts of predecessors like Herb Alpert, Chuck Mangione, and Tom Browne. Dependent on urban R&B beats, Braun can only marginally be called jazz, but does own an appeal to the smooth music crowd that this produced recording will only reinforce. Teamed with keyboardist and producer Philippe Saisse, Braun follows a path of least resistance in terms of the calculated nature of his music and the simplicity of his melodies.

Boney James - Trust (1992)
Smooth Jazz | MP3 320 kbps CBR | 43 min | 104 MB
Label: Warner Bros. Records | Rel: 1992

Some highlights of "Trust" include the prototype Boney James song "Metropolis," vaguely Asian-feeling "Kyoto," and fine smooth jams "Lilly" and "Roadrunner." Each provides a beautiful stage for James' alto, tenor and soprano saxophone stylings and paints lush, memorable pictures in the minds of listeners. Naysayers will be glad to know that the other half of "Trust" is filled with an undefined blandness; even at album release (at the start of James' search for a signature sound) it was "could be anybody" music. Even the cover of Stevie Wonder's classic "Creepin'" is boring.

Gerald Albright - Just Between Us (1987) {Warner}
EAC 0.99pb4 | FLAC tracks level 8 | Cue+Log+M3U | Full Scans 600dpi | 309MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Jazz-Funk, Smooth Jazz

Beginning in the late '80s, saxophone master Gerald Albright recorded numerous successful solo albums for Atlantic when he wasn't busy assisting an impressive, and mammoth, roster of popular R&B artists. Born in South Central Los Angeles, the saxophonist idolized James Brown and took much influence from Maceo Parker and Cannonball Adderley. He first made a name for himself within the music industry during the '80s, when he became a highly requested session musician.

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.
