Synopsis

Album Description
The Popjazz/Native Language debut from hit saxophonist Warren Hill proves that music can imitate art. Popjazz, which features special guests Brian Culbertson, Grammy® winner Norman Brown, and guitarist Jeff Golub, characterizes the mood of the 1950s/60s pop art movement by utilizing broad techniques and production styles found in today?s greatest pop albums. Having sold over a million records worldwide since his 1991 debut album, Warren embarks on a new career path to explore unique musical textures and carry forth as a core artist in the pop-instrumental format with 11 all-new tracks that include several well-known arrangements of "Play That Funky Music (White Boy)", "Back At One," "Low Rider," and "Come Together."
 

CD Reviews

Soulful Sax

"One of the best smooth jazz albums I have ever heard. The first track, "Toronto", and the last track "Bridgin' the Gap" will give you chills. Funky, soulful and romantic sax. This is Warren Hill at his best."
His best work to date!

"Warren Hill has been one of "Smooth Jazz and More's" most requested recording artists. He had a huge success with his 1997 release, "Devotion". The track, "Another Goodbye" still receives airplay on our daily play list. He's recorded other CD's after that with limited success. His latest release in off the Native Language label called, "Pop Jazz". It's a step in the right direction, retuning to the style he's best known for, a hip and funky saxophone. With the Beatles classic, "Come Together". The track, "Still in Love" is as romantic of a song as I've ever heard. Overall, this is a fun CD to listen to. Fans of smooth jazz saxophone will be thrilled with Hill's latest release!
