Strongest in the series

"From Boney James' flawless rendition of Rufus' "SweetThing"
to George Benson's rousing "On Broadway," thiscollection
(subtitled "Under the Covers," all remakes) is the finest in
Warner Bros. enjoyable Best of Smooth Jazz series. Take 6 gives an
irresistible reading of "Deepest Part of Me," Al Jarreau
croons sweetly over a backdrop by Bob James and David Sanborn on the
jazz standard "Since I Fell for You," and Randy Crawford
masterfully transforms Journey's "Who's Crying Now" into a
jazz/soul classic. Furthermore Michael McDonald gives Carole King's
"Hey Girl" a new lease on life, Mark Whitfield serves up a
smooth instrumental reading of Stevie Wonder's "That Girl,"
and we're treated to Fourplay's excellent take on Marvin Gaye's "After
the Dance," featuring a top-notch vocal by El DeBarge. A shoddy
rendition of the over-done "I Can't Make You Love Me" by
Johnny Hartman wannabe Kevin Mahogany can be forgiven; virtually every
other track is gorgeously executed, breathing fresh new life into
Great compilation of some of smooth jazz's greatest hits

"What a super compilation. The name is actually a bit of a misnomer. A lot of the music here is not merely smooth jazz instrumentals. Most are actually smooth R&B vocals. No matter, this is a great CD. You may not know all the songs by title, however you will recognize them when you hear the CD. Almost worth the price of admission is the inclusion of the Al Jarreau/David Sanborn/Bob James version of "Since I Fell For You". Every song is a solid 10, plus this is a definite "Shut Up and Kiss Me" romantic CD."
