Derwin Daniels - Journey (2007)
Saxophone player Derwin Daniels delivers a really smooth instrumental album full of catchy melodies and contemporary grooves, well produced and well played, definitely worthy of your time. Check it out!
Bohm Witman Project - My Funny Valentine (2008)
Trumpeter Jim Bohm and saxophonist Ken Witman present their debut CD, a groove-oriented acoustic jazz recording with spirited soloing and a good selection of material, they even tackle "Funkin' For Jamaica". Very recommended!
Dirk K - Dirk K Plays Jobim (2008)
Guitar player Dirk K dishes up some mighty fine acoustic guitar playing interpreting the music of Brazilian composer Antonio Carlos Jobim, the gentle bossa tunes in a contemporary jazz setting are a breath of fresh air.
Jamhunters - Music Speaks Louder Than Words (2008)
This great band hails from Copenhagen and comes up with a polished, groovy and ultra-cool contemporary jazz album with lots of chill/lounge elements, the band is fronted by Peter Michael on keys and Lars Fabiansen on guitar who deliver some outstanding solos. Thumbs up!
Rodney Franklin - You'll Never Know (1980)
Going down memory lane I would like to point out this beautiful album by keyboard player Rodney Franklin that has become a true classic, the track "The Groove" is one of my all-time favorites, it has been released on CD (along with "In The Center") so get it and be delighted again!
