This CD is as much a labor of love as it is a tribute to the pioneers of the instrumental music that preceded and evolved into what is now known as "Smooth Jazz".
If a great recording needs to start with a great song, we couldn't have done better than this collection of classics, written and performed by some of the biggest names in the business.
What a joy to be able to play with these great melodies, and with such great musicians. Having legends like David Pack (who played Guitar on the remake of his classics hit "You're the Biggest Part Of Me") and Grant Geissman (who's original solo on "Feels So Good" made him famous, and who graciously repeated the effort here) was indeed as added thrill.
Every attempt was made to honor the spirit of the originals, while trying to add just enough of our own touch to them. I hope you enjoy my tribute to these classics even half as much as I enjoyed playing them!
