Jeff Kashiwa, former member of the popular group The Rippingtons, makes late night music for adults to chill out too, and this album is no different and sees him in great form again. Well, I think this sax master just keeps getting better.
Whether your'e in the mood for.... luuuv... or driving down a busy motorway... turn up the vibes and chill, relax and your cares just float away on hearing that incredible and very recognizable sax !!
The mellow or upbeat nature of his playing makes it seems as though the music is flowing, dancing... His notes are long and engaging and never shrill, so that they draw the listener in and invite him to sit for a while and relax.
He manages to vary the mood with each track - each one is incredible.
My favourite tracks are "The Lucky One", "Movin' Up" , "Blue Jeans" and the mellow "New View" with soft piano play.
You will adore the mellow saxaphone sound of Jeff : smooth, chilled and saxy!
Guests Alex Al (bass), Lenny Castro (percussion), Russell Ferrante (piano, fender rhodes), Gregg Carmichael (guitar), Dave Kochanski (keybord, producer) and Barry Danielian (trumpet) join in.
Prepare to play all night long wih Jeff !
