Just a Little TOO Smooth..

It really is a shame that an art form as creative, innovative and free as Jazz is, should be watered-down, homoginized and pre-packaged into something now, sadly known as "smooth jazz". It is inevitable, that in the effort to please the masses, that an egg, would invariably be laid. This effort was it. As a Pieces fan,from their first release, on wax, no less, (We Are One),Pieces has always delivered solid compositions, tunes that were catchy, yet never at the sacrifice of musicianship. Very few songs contain the trademark keyboard wizardry of James Lloyd, instead opting for weak melodies that put one in the mind of elevator music. This is painful to say, really it is, but I'm really going to have to pass on this one, folks.

Recomended Buy!

I agree with Philly, however good smooth jazz is good smooth jazz! I know over the years smooth jazz has been watered down greatly and 70% of it is like listening to elevator music, but coming from a true Latin, Acid, Bluenote & Smooth Jazz Diehard fan there is some smooth jazz that's out of this world fantastic. I wish we could hear more of a mix of smooth/bluenote jazz, pulling away from my father's hardcore bluenote generation but me as a child watching him grooving to the old school "Pieces of a Dream". This CD is Fantastic, it has tunes you can dance to and relax to, I give it 5 stars!


I have been listening and buying P.O.A.D music since the 1980. I have attended several concerts in NC. They still have that orginal sound. Great Job! Keep doing what you do best, which is making beautiful music.
