stronger than your average 'smooth jazz' cd... has a bit more 'soul' to it; mr. marcus aint afraid of a well placed beat which is what helps keep your attention when listening to some mellow sounds... (unless you just WANT something that's gonna put you to sleep!) ...as far as smooth jazz goes, this is 5 star disc, but since i'm a very picky person and stubborn (my friends will attest!), i can only give this a 4 overall because the weight of this cd is carried mostly upon the shoulders of 3 or 4 tracks and not as evenly as i would like...
i miss alyson williams and wish she would return with an album or two... she coo's oh so very lovely on the one track given to her... and marcus's version of 'til the cops come knockin' is somehots#it!
to the less critical fan, this is a must have. i hope yall enjoy it.
take it easy now,
