EDITORS’ NOTES

At this point a veteran of the smooth jazz circuit, saxophonist Boney James still favors a warmer, earthier horn sound than is common in the genre. Aside from the opening soprano sax vehicle “Kicks,” he stays mainly on tenor. His rendition of Hoagy Carmichael’s “Skylark” is stark and unusual, a worthy perspective on more traditional jazz fare. Guest vocals by Avery*Sunshine and Eric Roberson, and tasty guitar licks on “Low and Slow” and “We Came to Party,” give a boost as well.

Smooth Jazz

Its to bad smooth jazz has taken on a commercial sound.The mechanical drum sound along with all those twirly added sound effects only cheapen the sound.If you want to hear Boney at his best check out hie earlier work,much more creative .

COMMERCIAL JAZZ

A lot of these guys got talent. But they have decided to..play it safe and commercial. Boney had a couple albums where he stretched a bit. But here he plays it cool and safe, A little to safe. After you've listened to this type of jazz for a while? It all starts sounding the same.
