Richard Elliot, a former member of Tower of Power, Kittyhawk, and the Yellowjackets, is a tenor saxophonist with a creamy tone and a penchant for pretty background melodies played over steady but uninspired rhythm tracks. After Dark, includes a heavy-breathing Jeffrey Osborne vocal on "If Tomorrow Never Comes," a synth-drenched remake of "Bridge over Troubled Water," and two house-influenced dance tracks produced by Tony Terry and a reunion with Tower of Power on "The Boys from the Bay." Like a number of smooth jazz contenders, Elliot is a pop instrumentalist rather than a jazz musician, but even as a popster he has trouble finding a strong personality for his recordings. --Geoffrey Himes

"This was the first CD by Richard Elliot that I had the privilege to Listen to. Needless to say I have several of his CD's in my collection now. Without going into a lot of detail it is still my favorite(maybe because it was my first). There is not a bad song on it. Richard is melodic, soulful, and smooth. At the same time he is funky, brash, and bold. The man can play any style and play it well. Just one warning! If you buy one of his CD's you will want them all! Happy Listening."
Saxxy and Sensuous

"Build a fire, pour a glass of wine and revel in the sensuous tones of Richard Elliot's Sax.
This was my first, and it won't be my last by this terrific musician.
If you love smooth, easy, tones of jazz you'll love this CD."
Smooth Jazz atits best!
