Rafe Gomez, a DJ and mixer who produces a nationally syndicated show called The Groove Boutique, has a single himself that is getting some airplay on Smooth Jazz radio. �Icy� is a sprightly ditty that clocks in at just under three minutes and features a can�t-get-it-out-of-your-head melody, trumpet by Glenn Kaye , unobtrusive vocalese and chants of "Icy."
This is the cool stuff, baby. Gomez says the song has �a sound that�s best described as Herb Alpert meets Bob James in Brazil, with Praful mixing the drinks.�
The happy track is one of 15 that Gomez compiled for The Groove Boutique: Volume One on Tommy Boy Records. The CD is available at the usual outlets, including for a discount at Dusty Groove America at www.dustygroove.com.
