This Smooth Jazz Sunday, I’m going to try something a little bit different. I’ve put together a playlist of tunes to make a half-hour mix for you to enjoy, no matter what time of day you run across it. So if it’s your Sunday morning, afternoon or evening, or even if you don’t get to it until it’s your Monday, I hope you enjoy.
I’m going to provide less information about the artists involved in these tunes, except to say that they either are, or were, big in the smooth jazz genre. Of the six artists I am featuring today, only the Rippingtons have appeared on Smooth Jazz Sunday before. I wanted to give some artists that I haven’t chosen for Smooth Jazz Sunday a little shine today in this mix. I hope you are able to hear all six of the YouTube videos I’ve included in this playlist; but if you cannot, I have listed the artists and song titles below for you to seek out.
- 3rd Force – “You Gotta Be Real”
- David Benoit – “Kei’s Song”
- Chris Botti – “On The Night Ride”
- Special EFX – “Jamaica Jamaica”
- Acoustic Alchemy – “The Beautiful Game”
- The Rippingtons – “Vienna”
Leave your impressions of the songs, artists, or even the whole concept of a Smooth Jazz Sunday mix in the comments. As always, thanks for reading and listening.
