Here is a great soulful funky album with Roy Ayers from the mid 90's, and he have a special guest invited to these sessions too, I'm talking of the fantastic James Moody that play some soprano sax, even if Harold Paris Robinson is the mayor sax player on the album, yeah everyone that like soul gonna enjoy this album too a lot, and it is fantastic to hear that Roy Ayers really could make some great music in the 90's too when a lot of 60's and 70's musicians really trap themself in the 90's machinery, yeah listen to this album and you'll understand what I mean with great soul of the 90's. The nasté ending on No More Trouble should be that way so it ain't nothing wrong with the file at all.

Something of a smooth jazz oriented answer to the label's 2003 straight-ahead compilation Jazz After Dark, this highly engaging two-disc set features oft-played radio hits that have helped define the genre's generally easy grooves and colorful melodies. For diehard fans, smooth jazz has always been as about much about lifestyle as music, and these tracks will no doubt remind them just why they became devotees. All the early classics (circa mid-'70s to mid-'80s) are here, from Kenny G.'s "Songbird" and Dave Grusin's "Mountain Dance" to George Benson's "Breezin'" and Grover Washington, Jr.'s "Just the Two of Us." These are supplemented by later hits like Boney James & Rick Braun's "Grazin' in the Grass" and Dave Koz's "You Make Me Smile." But it's not simply an objective survey of smoothness at its best. The collection also seems designed to promote artists in the Concord Jazz stable – David Benoit and Russ Freeman, the Rippingtons, the Braxton Brothers, Gato Barbieri, Eric Marienthal, and Cassandra Reed, among others.

Genre: Latin Jazz, Fusion, Jazz Pop

One of Ray Barretto's more erratic albums of the 1970s, Can You Feel It? is a collection of pop-jazz/crossover, fusion, and pop-soul that ranges from the exciting to the forgettable. Parts of this album find the conguero wasting his considerable talents on lesser material, but other parts find him letting loose and taking chances. "Whirlpool," "Daydreams," and the insistent "Confrontation" are solid fusion instrumentals that would have been worthy of Return to Forever, and "Sting Ray" has the type of catchy jazz-funk groove that would have worked on one of Joe Farrell's CTI dates of the 1970s.

Goodrum has written songs that became hits for such performers as Kenny Rogers (What Are We Doin’ in Love), Anne Murray (You Needed Me), Steve Perry (Foolish Heart) George Benson (20/20), Toto, El Debarge, among others. This is his first album as a performer, and while nobody is likely to start thinking of him as a golden voice, it’s appealing to hear a good pop composer sing his own material. In this case it’s disappointing that Goodrum decided not to do any of his hits, singing instead eight of his mostly unrecorded songs, plus the sometime Chordettes and Harris-Parton-Ronstadt hit Mr. Sandman. The fact that Goodrum does all his own backup playing and singing, and even recorded the LP at his house, makes it a little sterile too. He nonetheless has a gentle touch as a songwriter—his tunes are full of sighs of regret—and his vocals bring to mind Michael Franks.

After his debut on the tiny Brut Records (a short-lived record label of the famous cologne company), Michael Franks established both his unique sound and a recording process he has continued throughout his career. Primarily a jazz artist, Franks crossed over to pop and rock fans through heavy FM airplay beginning with The Art of Tea. Sensually suggestive and playful tracks, such as "Popsicle Toes" and "Eggplant" contain sly wordplay and almost Henry Mancini-like, breezy jazz-pop. Employing a similar approach as Steely Dan did with its music, Franks' singing and songwriting formed the basis of a sound rooted in the support of top-notch musicians, many of whom were the hottest studio jazz players on the scene. Here, the killer rhythm section of drummer John Guerin and bassist Wilton Felder is augmented by horn pros Michael Brecker and David Sanborn, with Franks and Larry Carlton handling all the guitar work. This winning combination of players, styles, singing, and songwriting would be reshuffled and refined over the years, but perhaps with no finer results than on this official major label debut.

Petra Magoni is considered to be one of most incredible voice as well for her interpreter's qualities today as on technical plan and Ferruccio Spinetti is surely one of the more brilliant bassist his generation and replacing a whole orchestra with its simple instrument. While the Musica Nuda's previous albums (Musica Nuda in 2004, Musica Nuda 2 in 2006, 55/21 in 2008) are primarly comprised of well-known standards, many of them in English (e.g., the Beatles' "Eleanor Rigby", "come together", "nature boy", "kiss" etc.), the new album complici is comprised of a majority of original and unreleased songs and been immediately Charte n°1 on top Jazz (physical & digital) in France & Italy. "Complici" in Italian means complicity, an amazing complicity that did not cease evolving; growing for soon 8 years and that constitutes the cement and the soul of their unique duo. "Complici" is a sober disc, a disc of songs, where sobriety and emotion take the place of the explosive energy of the previous opuses.

"The Phoenix" is Marcus Johnson's 10th recording and features 11 brand new songs from both new and established songwriters. The keyboardist/composer/producer offers a solid and balanced set filled with urban grooves, contemporary jazz, R&B and hip-hop with a little help from friends saxophonist Phillip Martin, vocalist Frank McComb and guitarist Stanley Cooper, among others. Johnson has developed a real talent for smooth jazz as well as having a hand in getting inside the groove and soul of his R&B cohort Raheem DeVaughn's smash hit titled "Believe." Johnson's collage of wide-ranged and interesting material is capped off with the radio hit "The Road to Los Suenos," a real smooth burner with vocals by Nikki Gonzalez that should have the club scene happening with its thumping evocation of R&B and ebullient rhythms.
