So we have a number of Jazz threads but most vary in their focus and have a lot of old school jazz..............which I just do not like.
I'm talking the new stuff that is upbeat, has great bass notes and gets you moving. I know from reading the 'what are you listening to thread there's a number of us smooth jazzheads'. Kenny G started this for all of us with Songbird back in the early '80's and for that I thank him.
Here's a playlist and artist listing -
Paul Hardcastle - Return of the Rainman
Boney James - Wanna Show you Something
Dave Koz - Whisper in your Ear
Kem - Heaven
Jackiem Joyner - Elevation
Vincent Ingala - Can't Stop Now
Marcus Johnson - Enigma
Melvin Rogers - Luv-U-Now
Udi Levy - Just Say It
Zachary Breaux - Small Town in Texas
Kenny G - Japan
I have literally hundreds of Smooth Jazz songs in my iTunes and spread through over 30 playlists. The sound and pleasure they bring to me are unmatched by all my other music (and I have over 4000 songs now in iTunes with the full collection of Pink Floyd among them).
Who else loves this sub-genre?
