REVIEW - The Smooth Jazz Ride

Often, Click to buy or listenit has been said that, to preserve smooth jazz, we need to redefine what it is.  It has been suggested that, perhaps returning to what it was, as contemporary jazz, is the answer.  If so, I have the "Rx" right here for whatever may ail the genre. It's called Urban Vacation, and it's offered by Norwegian saxman Terje Lie (pronounced “Terry Lee”) who, along with contemporary jazz/fusion icons Jeff Lorber and Jimmy Haslip, firmly place the genre in the comfy place where it and its fans have longed for it to be for quite some time. This is solid with a capital “S.”

Lie and friends take us on such a remarkably tasteful journey here that you can easily envision the studio and live settings for this production.  Lorber hovering over his chatty and funky keys (and providing a little guitar work, as well), Haslip confidently laying into some of the most defined and authoritative bass lines around (and check out his scatting on the opening track), and Lie providing the brilliance and substance of a very well-played sax to it all clearly is a picture (and audio) we true smooth jazzers can really appreciate.

The writing is sharp and professional with each composition unabashedly bearing its own soul and characteristics.  From the popping opening track, “Bail Out” to the funky “Crazy Groove” to the frenetic yet carefully crafted mover called “Dance On the Water” another cleverly timed funkster titled “Blue Funk” to the sweet, mellow, and hook-rich “Sedona” (kudos to Mike Landau for the acoustic guitar solo here, by the way) to the monstrously funky Roy Ayers Ubiquity tune “Red Black and Green” covered here with tight backing vocals and superior sax work by Lie, all the way through the lazily seductive finale, “Tonight,” this is music of magnificent quality.  If you’re a true aficionado of what colored smooth jazz in its early years and what should ignite contemporary jazz today, Terje Lie's Urban Vacation has the formula.  --  Ronald Jackson

REVIEW - No Solo Smooth Jazz


A chinese lion statue

No Solo Smooth Jazz Jazz, Swing, Soul, R&B, en definitiva, música superlativa…

Bienvenidos a todos a www.nosolosmoothjazz.com, esta pagina Web que hoy presentamos pretende ser un punto de encuentro para los amantes y aficionados de la buena musica, de la musica de calidad.
www.nosolosmoothjazz.com sera un abanico que abarcara todo tipo de generos musicales, desde el Smooth Jazz hasta el Soul, pasando por el R&B, el Jazz Clasico o el Funk. El comun denominador sera musica con calidad superlativa.


TERJE LIE: URBAN VACATION

4-1088-7603-1Conocido familiarmente como “Terry Lee”, este compositor y saxofonista originario deNoruega pero establecido ya desde hace años en la soleada costa californiana, presenta su segunda producción discográfica que titula genéricamente “Urban Vacation” y que viene avalada por dos músicos que en esta ocasión, además de tocar, también producen la totalidad del álbum. Nos estamos refiriendo al teclista Jeff Lorber y al bajista Jimmy Haslip. Este nuevo disco, al igual que el publicado en el año 2.006 y que llevó por titulo “Traveler”, esta editado por el sello discográfico TCat Records y ya es uno de los más demandados y escuchados en lo que va de año. Terje Lie en “Urban Vacation”, recoge un total de 10 composiciones, en las que el propio saxofonista participa componiendo a medias junto a Jeff Lorber temas como “Bail Out”“Blue Funk” y “Coral Dream” a lo que hay que añadir el tema titulado “Tonight”, que el propio saxofonista firma en solitario. Por lo que respecta al resto de las composiciones el tandem Lorber-Haslip componen temas como “Crazy Groove”“Dance On The Water”“Sedona”“So Retro” y “Parlophone”. Una de las novedades a destacar en este nuevo trabajo de Terje Lie es la versión que hace del clásico deRoy Ayers, “Red Black And Green”, publicado en el año 1.976 y que ahora recobra actualidad plena. El álbum se inicia con el tema“Bail Out” que lleva inevitablemente la “marca” y el sonido de Jeff Lorber a lo que hay que añadir una poderosa y bien dirigida sección de metal compuesta por Gary Meek al saxo y Ron King a la trompeta. Terje Lie, además de tocar el saxo soprano, alto y tenor, también se encarga de la parte vocal y de los coros. La idea del nuevo disco del saxofonista está basada en el concepto clásico de cuarteto, esto es, Jeff Lorber a los teclados, Jimmy Haslip al bajo, Tony Moore a la batería y el propio Terje Lie al saxo. Lo verdaderamente interesante y novedoso es que al cuarteto se incorporarán músicos adicionales como los guitarristasMichael Landau y Dwight Sills, el bajista Ernest Tibbs, el batería Jeff Olson o el vocalista Sharon Perry. Tal como apuntábamos al inicio de esta crítica, Jeff Lorber y Jimmy Haslip se vuelcan de lleno en el proyecto musical, de esta forma, ambos están presentes, musicalmente hablando, a lo largo de las diez composiciones de la que se compone el álbum y el Smooth Jazz, mezclado con R&B y Pop esta asegurado. Entre los temas más tranquilos, instrumentalmente hablando, destaca el titulado “Sedona” y el compuesto en solitario por el saxofonista, “Tonight” y que contiene un excelente ”solo” de teclados de Jeff Lorber. Tanto de la producción del álbum como de los aspectos más técnicos -grabación y mezcla- se ocupa magistralmente Jeff Lorber en sus estudios de sonidos JHL Sound, localizados en Pacific PalisadesCalifornia. Destacar también la presencia en estas labores de Dennis Moody. De la masterización del disco se encarga Rich Breen en DogmaticBurbankCalifornia. Por último decir que Terje Liededica la totalidad de su nueva producción discográfica a su madre, persona que supo ver de inmediato el talento musical de su hijo.
