Things are already popping in smooth jazz for the new year. Last week we had an early listen from Brian Simpson and Steve Oliver’s new album Unified. The rest will be out and played here shortly.
I will start this week’s music with a single released early that will be part of an album to be out on February 22nd. It is from guitarist Ken Navarro, a very prolific artist that has released 24 albums with lots of great music since his debut in 1990. This will be the title tract to that new album Into The Light.
I have more new music for the new year. Lawson Rollins is an American guitarist and composer from North Carolina noted for his virtuoso finger style technique and melodic compositional skills. He will have a new album out later in January and we have an early listen to the title track from that new album True North.
Flautist and saxophonist Najee released the album Center Of The Heart in November. Here he is joined by bass player Blair Bryant on the title track to this great new album.
Our favorite guitarist and this show’s most played artist Peter White released a new album in November. It was originally written for in flight entertainment for Starlux Airlines from Taiwan. It, as with Peter’s other work, is just simply great easy listening music. This song especially this time of year makes you yearn for what the title suggests - Island Getaway.
