Album Review

Not to be confused with the Christian singer/songwriter of the same name, Greg Long is a downtempo producer/remixer with a taste for jazzy grooves that are so restrained and tasteful that at times, they almost disappear into the ether. His 2002 debut long-player, Balance, is uniformly smooth and appealingly mellow, but there's so little difference between these 14 tracks that the album could have been mixed and sequenced as a one or two multi-part suite, and no one would be the wiser.

If hot tub parties were still fashionable, Balance would be perfect for the evening's soundtrack.
