Album Review

The songs covered on Body Party, the ninth album of smooth jazz from saxophonist Kim Waters' Streetwize group, weren't all number one R&B hits (as the cover states), but none of the selections are close to obscure. As usual, the group rolls through well-known contemporary singles with a predominantly instrumental and wholly relaxed approach. Silken takes on Ciara's "Body Party," Drake's "Hold On, We're Going Home," and Miguel's "How Many Drinks" are among the highlights. Another bright spot, Tamar Braxton's "The One," allows the group to have fun with Mtume's "Juicy Fruit" and the Notorious B.I.G.'s "Juicy." For slightly older listeners, Waters and company close out the the album by going back to 1979 for a serene version of Angela Bofill's "I Try" — a bittersweet quiet storm classic despite not being released as a single. Those who dig the Bofill cover should check Waters' My Loves, issued only five months prior, which includes a rendition of Minnie Riperton's "Lovin' You" fronted by Dana Pope (one of the vocalists on this album).

Customer Reviews

Music is music

While everyone is entitled to their opinion, some of the reviewers here seem to forget that music is what it is, an artform that some may agree with and some may disagree with. I think that this music is what it is, some of us will like it and some of us won't, but to trash this particular music, call is garbage, and say it deserves its own genre is just plain ignorant.

If you are such a jazz snob, a "purist", why don't you release your own album?

Garbage

Itunes, please, file the whole "smooth jazz" garbage separately from jazz. This is an insult to the truest form of American art. For goodness' sake, create a separate genre where junk like this one and the likes of Kenny G and David Sanborn can be appropriately relegated.

Great

I love to hear real music....
