Phil Denny - Upswing (2015)
MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 11 Tracks | 48:12 | 111 MB
Genre: Jazz, Smooth Jazz, Funk-Soul Jazz | Label: Off-Sheet Music

Saxophonist Phil Denny returns with more tasty lyricism, sultry flow and stylish grooves on the diverse and well-balanced sophomore release "Upswing," following a stellar "Crossover" debut which garnered three Billboard charting singles. A spiraling discussion surrounding the latest release was prompted by the blazing summer single "Soak It Up" currently receiving national and international attention. Denny’s just released 11-track album infuses elements of rhythm and blues, urban vibe, uptempo pop and funk, and demonstrates a clear ability to raise the bar while displaying growth in artistry.

Smooth Jazz / New Age

Taking a stroll through Keiko Matsui's musical hypnotherapy session Dream Walk is like entering a funhouse where all previous definitions of contemporary jazz are strikingly distorted, and invention walks on the wild side of East meets West. Crisp melodies have always been at the heart of the keyboardist's best work, only here they come at you as part of the mood, rather than the central theme...

Yellowjackets - Blue Hats (1997) {Warner}
EAC 1.0b2 | FLAC tracks level 8 | Cue+Log+M3U | Full Scans 600dpi | 379MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Fusion, Smooth Jazz

In typical Yellowjackets fashion, Blue Hats takes the listener on a surprise journey of what seems like mainstream pop/jazz, but what is really much more well-crafted than the usual fare. The album mixes relatively easy-listening tunes with a few hard-driving ones where both Ferrante and Mintzer are able to branch out. Russel Ferrante's piano improvisations are at once sparse and lucid-his use of space allows his melodic genius to be appreciated by the attentive listener.

If we're talking Keiko Matsui, we can expect another impressionistic album cover which belies the often explosive music on the disc. Matsui draws a little more from her heritage this time but textures it with soulful excursions ("Walking on the Bridge")....
