The Best of Smooth Jazz, Vol. 2 [Warner]

The Best of Smooth Jazz, Vol. 2 [Warner]



The definition of smooth jazz has never been close to concrete, but this Warners collection stretches the boundaries with tracks by Fourplay, Michael McDonald, Take 6, and Randy Crawford in addition to regulars like David Sanborn, Bob James, Pat Metheny, and George Benson. All of the tracks do work well together, though, creating an easy-listening collection with warmth and emotions galore.
