"Back in the late 1980's and early 1990's, there was a disturbing trend among some jazz artists to incorporate drum machines, sequencers and cheesy sounding sampled instruments instead of using organic instruments, possibly to lower costs. While these changes might have caused less problems personally and gave the music a 'hip' feeling, these recordings sound unbelievably dated a simple fifteen years later. On this album, Kim Pensyl attempts to cover a Babyface song with the aforementioned instrumentation, and the result fails miserably. Fortunately not every song on this CD is like this, and it is at these moments (like the wonderful 'Say You Will') that he adopts a more organic feel, thus giving this song a truly timeless quality. If you are a fan of less-than-organic jazz, feel free to purchase. Otherwise, try downloading."
