The Sound of Jazz FM 2009 Volume 1
The music featured on this CD is a representation of the sound Jazz FM and we have tried to make it as eclectic as possible so that it catches both the spirit and the essence of our radio station.
You will hear the amazing ‘jazzy rhythms (as Robbie Vincent would say)’ of the much sought after Italian artist Mario Biondi with ‘This is What You Are’ which was first played to me by Jazz FM’s very own Peter Young, plus George Duke’s ‘Sausalito’ and Lonnie Liston Smith’s ‘Quiet Moments’. To give a taste of Steve Quirk’s favourite ‘smooth jazz melodies’ we have Jeff Lorber, Pieces Of A Dream, Kenny G, Kevin Whalum singing about Frankie Beverly and Stevie Wonder, and Darren Rhan featuring bassist Wayman Tisdale’s ‘What’cha Gonna Do For Me’.
Gil Scott-Heron songs feature twice on this CD. Firstly; you can hear Maysa’s very original take on ‘The Bottle’, then the very soulful and funky Esther Phillips with her version of the song ‘Home Is Where the Hatred Is’ which is definitely worth checking out. Bobby Lyle’s amazing cover version of Anita Baker’s ‘Been So Long’ is just fantastic (who better to cover the song than the man who has played the piano on this track so many times ‘live’ while accompanying Anita Baker as her musical director on tour?). Also featured is Bob Baldwin’s jazzy piano re-take on the Jocelyn Brown classic ‘Somebody Else’s Guy’ which features Jocelyn re-singing the song bringing a 2008/9 freshness to this timeless tune.
