EDITORS’ NOTES

Chart-topping star Jonathan Fritzen has quickly risen up the smooth jazz ranks with emotionally engaged music filled with melodic hooks, layered textures, and genuine musicianship. The Swedish-American keyboardist can often be heard soloing on piano with several high-profile guests stopping by. “A New Beginning” closes things out with a pop groove that will lodge itself in your head, but other highlights include the downtempo “Enchantment” and the dance floor–ready “Celebration,” where Fritzen and saxophonist Gerald Albright push each other with a nice back-and-forth dynamic that gains momentum as it goes.

"Fritzenized"

This collection of hits has "Fritzenized" me. Every song has been in heavy rotation since I've heard it.
Keep it going Jonathan.

A Smooth Jazz Star

Jonathan has appeared on many other artist’s CDs but can obviously hold his own on this latest offering, "Fritzenized.” It’s very easy to listen to and has flashes of musicianship from all the players. If you are interested in smooth jazz, this artist’s work has to be on your playlist.
