Album Review

Smooth jazz producer, arranger, and songwriter Paul Brown made the transition to recording artist with 2004's Up Front, which, like its successor, 2005's The City, was a Top Ten hit on the Contemporary Jazz chart. With a switch from GRP to Peak Records, Brown should continue his popular ways with his third solo album White Sand. He has enlisted more guests than usual this time, to the point that the disc is practically one of those "and friends" duets collections. Al Jarreau sings on "Make Me Feel So Good," Bobby Caldwell on a cover of "Mercy Mercy Mercy," and Lina on a cover of "I Say a Little Prayer." Among the star instrumentalists, Boney James is heard on "Ol' Skoolin'," David Benoit on "R 'n' B Bump," Euge Groove on "More or Less Paul," Rick Braun on "Mr. Cool," and saxophone newcomer Jessy J on the title track. The guests simply augment the contributions of the leader, however; Brown's guitar is a dominant instrument, and he has a vocal on a cover of "For What It's Worth." As the familiar titles indicate, he has taken inspiration from the '60s, but his rhythm tracks often have a current hip-hop sound, and the well-known lyrics and melodies will only serve to make the album more palatable for radio. Brown isn't interested in making any changes to smooth jazz except the occasional tweak to keep it sounding current, and this is another album that will please his own fans, and fans of the guest artists (whose discs were sometimes produced by him).

Customer Reviews

Just a Jazz Lover

There is a reason that everyone in the smooth jazz world want to work with Paul Brown. The man is a master at his craft. Everything he touches turns to gold. This one is no different look for it to go gold and win awards.

White Sand

Paul Brown's hitting on all eight cylinders with his latest offering, "White Sand". The title cut is the embodiment of what smooth jazz is all about, and his take on the sixties standard-Buffalo Springfield's, "For What It's Worth" makes that tune all the more relevant, in light of 21st century world conflicts. Throw in the all-star cast of artists, and this becomes a no-brainer to add to anybodys collection of serious smooth jazz guitar. Highly recommended!!

Simply awesome!

Smooth jazz at it's best. Paul Brown plays with incredible subtlety and finesse. Many of these tunes from the past bring this smooth jazz submission home. "I Say a Little Prayer" reminds me of my childhood. This should be one of the year’s best releases.
