Synopsis

Album Description
Sumptuous sounds to ignite your passion. Slow motion vines to massage your spirit. The Groove Boutique: Volume One offers a delicious serving of one, the other or both, depending upon what you - or perhaps your partner - have in mind. The luscious montage of moods presented on Groove Boutique: Volume One were carefully selected and mastefully blended by Rafe Gomez, DJ/host/producer of The Groove Boutique, America's first and only nationally syndicated jazz mix radio show. Rafe's goal with Groove Boutique: Volume One was to create the world's first mix CD of laid back jazz and jazz-oriented tracks for the same audience that tunes in his top-rated program each week: discriminating, mature, and sophisticated. A diverse palette of vibrant musical colors is captured on Groove Boutique: Volume One. Many of the artists on the album are well known to devotees of smooth jazz, chill jazz, and nu jazz; others will be less familiar. But beyond the level of their creators' popularity, the selections on Groove Boutique: Volume One are united by four artistic attributes: lush production, impeccable performance, pristine songcraft, and irresistable hipness. Melt into the warm vibes. Surrender to the sensuous rhythms. And savor the mouth-watering flavors of Groove Boutique: Volume One. Blended, vibed & funkdafied by Rafe Gomez.

CD Reviews

THE SEXIEST, MOST ORIGINAL CHILL JAZZ COMPILATION - EVER!!!
Tim Richards | New Orleans, LA | 01/02/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"When scouring the tracks on chill music compilations, it's hard to avoid the "usual suspects" of European producer-created songs that seem to be on every CD. This album, however, is in a whole different league. Not only is the content different (mostly artist-created and performed selections), the context is also unique: it's a continuous play mix CD, which means that all the songs are connected together - which is the same kind of presentation that you'd experience if hearing the music in a club. It's totally cool and a completely different approach to chill compilations. There are artists on Groove Boutique:Volume ONe that I've never heard of but I'm now totally into. I highly, highly recommend this CD to fans of chill music who want something different as well as people who are into smooth jazz who want something that's a helluva lot cooler than the usual stuff that they're exposed to on the radio. Best songs: Soulive, Headhunters, Alfonzo Blackwell, Jim Jam, Rafe Gomez."
Cool sounds for grillin' and chillin'!
Tony Delgado | Chicago, IL | 08/13/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"You have friends over for a barbecue and you're looking for great tunes to play that create a laid-back, adult, yet non-elevator music atmosphere. What do you play? GROOVE BOUTIQUE! This album is so excellent and very hip. It's definitely smooth but not so smooth that it will put your guests to sleep. The songs are excellent and the fact that it's mixed make it almost like there's a dj doing his thing in your living room! Favorite cuts: Soulive, Chris Botti, Jimjam, Monet, and Rafe's song Icy."
