This is the Sweetest Song
Shannon Lilia | Chicagoland, USA | 04/27/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"One night a couple of my single friends and I went out to the beautiful Secrets nightclub in Dolton, Illinois, which is 2 minutes south of Chicago. It was ladies' night and if you know anything about Chitown, you know what I mean when I say the DJ was playing "Steppers" music. He turned this song on and within one minute, the tears began to fall as if somebody died! This beautiful song was touching something deep within me. Months earlier, I'd danced the night away to "The Sweetest Days" with my sweetheart at my sister's birthday party at 3G's nightclub. After 60 seconds of subliminal reminiscing, I had to excuse myself to the ladies' room. Today, 1 1/2 year later, after extensive web and record store searching, not knowing the exact title, I finally found out that this is an OBIEDO song and NOT primarily a Peabo song. The tears fell again as I listened...and FELT this song! The bittersweet effect is awesome. Anyone who has never experienced true, real, deep love (or even a walk on a moonlit ocean shore!) can listen to this gorgeous song and really feel true love. What an experience. My man and I are together again, so...shall we dance, baby?"
Soothing Melodies

"I am definitely a fan of wind music, Everette Harp, Paul Taylor,and many others. However,this is a wonderful album. My husband has had it for years, and just last year we were at home painting, and he put Ray Obiedo (Sweet Summer Days) on, and we both instantly fell deeply in love with it. My favorite song of them all is #7 Macondo. Just simply smooth. Now when I listen to it, I find myself standing in the middle of the floor, with my eyes shut, swinging my arms, as if I am experiencing a sweet cool breeze from the ocean on a hot summer day. The melodies from the electric guitar seems to ignite my soul and it really moves me. This is a must have."

"At times when music is reviewed we as "public" reviewers tend to forget what genre music we are reviewing or perhaps are expecting something else to be heard from what we are listening to. Such is a dilemma with "smooth "Jazz. Labelled as Jazz could be a misnomer, in which lies the dilemma. But saying that, on the other hand there are varying levels or styles of " Jazz" and this type of music that Mr. Obiedo offers definitely falls into the smooth Jazz category, as it so is called. Nothing more, nothing less. So it is unfair to give a poor rating on an artist`s work after listening expecting to hear something which the artist in question is not the style he/she is presenting, or maybe what the artist wants to present to his buying fans. Ray Obiedo presents Latin influenced smooth Jazz. Just nice rhythmic, mostly instrumental, melodious, tuneful, subdued "Jazz" music. Which if your a Smooth Jazz listener you should enjoy."
