Smooth Groovers Review: S4:Ep21

Welcome to the latest Episode of the Smooth Groovers Review.
Season 4, episode 21, hence: SG4-21. Enter the portal for the love of the music!

This week the movie music that kicks off this show is from the film, Stargate – that proves so popular that currently both TV mini-series and cartoon episodes continue to entertain the world or should we say worlds! Anyway, this show is not about Sci-Fi, its about the love and sharing of licensed Smooth Jazz Funk and Soul.

Just a reminder, you can listen to the Podcast from i-tunes.

George BensonThis is an amazing track and the Doc remembers from the last show that it was so difficult choosing a tracks from his latest CD ; Songs and Stories. Therefore, we’ve featured another one.

Rocco Ventrella – Where Were You?
(Track listing approved by artist)
Rocco is a fantastic artist who studied the clarinet at the age of 14 and later, taught himself the saxophone. This man can Groove, Smooth and Soothe you with his gr8 music. This new single just out bringing sophisticated brightness to this October of 2009. Hot off the CD press!

Rick Braun from his latest CD entitled: All it Takes
From Rick website, which is very well put together by the way, we read:

Nobody on today’s contemporary urban jazz scene knows more about the power of perfect, timely partnerships—or what it takes to keep the #1 hits coming than Rick Braun. Drawing from the title of the trumpeter, composer and producer’s stylistically eclectic, envelope-pushing debut on Artistry Music, All It Takes is finding the groove with his friends and fellow greats.

Bob Baldwin
Recently we’re honoured to have had a chance to meet and interview the wonderfully talented Bob Baldwin
We follow the interview with a wonderful interpretation of a Micheal Jackson classic.
BTW the track features Chuck Loeb and it is from Bob’s CD entitled: Lookin’ Back.

This week’s SOUL SENSATION SEGMENT includes:

Gill Scott- Heron & Brian Jackson
Norman Brown from the CD West Coast Cooling.
As you know, this latter track was originally performed by Marvin Gaye. The sentiment and relevance of this song is still sadly true today. The track was composed by Alfred W. Cleveland/Marvin P. Gaye/Renaldo Obie Benson

This week’s BRING IT BACK SEGMENT included:

The Chimes
Stevie Wonder from the Secret Life of Plants
Everette Harp from the CD for the Love
Patti Austin and we closed the show with
Kyoto Jazz Massive

We really hope you enjoyed the show – Thanks for letting us have your ears for another episode.

All the Best from the
Doc and Prof.
