Marc Antoine, who has scored five No. 1 Smooth Jazz singles with his trademark acoustic Latin and flamenco guitar sounds, has wrapped up a new CD titled Hi-Lo Split. The CD, his eighth overall, marks a return to Antoine's smooth nylon-guitar sounds and is his first for Peak Records. His previous CD, 2005�s Modern Times, experimented with hip-hop and techno rhythms.
Featured are 11 songs, including titles such as �For a Smile,� �Silk & Steel,� �Cancun Blue,� �Tomorrow� and a cover of the Classic IV�s classic hit single from 40 years ago, �Spooky.� Antoine, who lives in Spain, used mostly local musicians for the CD, including keyboardist Frederic Gaillardet, bassist Andre Manga, trumpeter Manuel Machado and saxophonist Bobby Martinez.
Hi-Lo Split, named after a type of poker game, will be available July 24.
