Song of the week: Richard Elliot - "Your Secret Love"

Here's a new feature - the song of the week. It could be a No. 1 smooth jazz songs, as this week's choice is. Or it could just be a song that deserves to be spotlighted.

The songs will all have the same thing in common: They are all good enough to go straight to the top of the charts.

Its the first single from the recent album Forever, For Love, For Luther, a tribute to the singer featuring many of smooth jazz’s top stars that just so happened to pick up a Grammy nomination on Dec. 7 for its producers, Bud Harner and Rex Rideout. In addition to Elliot on sax, the song features Rideout on keyboards, Alex Al on bass, Dwight Sills on guitar and Fonzi Thornton, Lisa Fischer, Brenda White-King and Cindy Mizelle on backing vocals.
