D E N I S * P O O L E

�The Buzz� by Ken Navarro from the album Dreaming Of Trains. Although not totally indicative of what is an extremely innovative collection, this sumptuous slice of smooth jazz is nevertheless something to savour.

�Tag You�re It� by Lynn Riley from her CD Too Cool. Enticingly perky and massively commercial this is a tune that is already evolving into a firm favorite.

�Funkability�, the brand new, (and never before heard), radio single from saxophonist Will Donato; Out on Innervision Records and produced by Darren Rahn it�s a number for which the title says it all. With a tight, infectious vibe it is in the best traditions of high octane sax driven smooth jazz and is sure to do well.

�I Can�t Let You Go� by Haywoode from the recently re-released album Arrival. Produced by Bruce Nazarian, and featuring horns from John Trudell and Ross Pooley, this funky cut has, since its release in 1985, become something of a cult classic. Now available from Cherry Red Records the 17-track digitally re-mastered special edition CD includes seven bonus tracks plus a comprehensive color booklet of pictures, analysis and exclusive brand new interviews with the artist and those involved with her career.

�Parlophone� by Terje Lie from his brand new release Urban Vacation; Produced by Jeff Lorber and Jimmy Haslip, Lorber�s tight keys provide a platform for this infectious, brass enriched cut by Norwegian born sax man Lie.
