Reseña de álbum

In the 1980s and '90s, artists who liked their pop-jazz accessible but creative faced a number of challenges. On one hand, many NAC programmers tended to favor outright elevator Muzak — and on the other hand, artists like Grover Washington, Jr., Joe Sample, and David Sanborn weren't going to get any respect from bop's hardcore no matter how substantial their recordings were. (Sanborn, in fact, expressed his frustration over the fact that dogmatic jazz purists view anything with a backbeat as inherently evil). So about the only thing someone like Bob Thompson can do is simply be himself and let the chips fall where they may. Accessible and melodic but hardly without substance, Love Dance underscores the fact that pop-flavored jazz doesn't have to be devoid of a brain. Intelligent yet easy-to-absorb tunes like "Joyful Noise," "Oasis," and the funky "Godfather" aren't just instrumental pop — they're proof that jazz, R&B, and pop elements can be united into an attractive and cohesive whole, and they remind us that for pop-jazz players, there is a middle ground somewhere between the intellect of Branford Marsalis and the type of knee-jerk, formulaic approach that NAC radio often favored in the '90s. The closest the CD comes to straight-ahead jazz is Thompson's Latin-influenced take on John Coltrane's "Equinox," and the only time it sounds like outright Muzak is when the keyboardist/pianist provides a fluffy, bland cover of Anita Baker's "Talk to Me" — obviously, he recorded that one for NAC radio instead of for artistic purposes. But on the whole, Love Dance is pop-jazz/crossover with integrity.

Light-pop figure Bob Thompson is not the same as a later jazz musician of the same name. This one, the "poor man's Esquivel," was born in 1924 in San Jose, California. After high-school band, he used music to put himself through college at the University of California at Berkeley. This was followed by work at stations KMBC and KGO in San Francisco, California. A 1950 stint in Paris with singer Jacqueline François led to further sessions abroad, even in the Far East, and on both coasts of the U.S....
