Dream Come True" brings on the funk, as well as beautiful ballads, light calypso touches, even a little countrified soul complete with steel guitar. Simply stated, this is my favorite Earl Klugh album in a long line of quality work.

Bob James - Dancing On The Water (2001) {WB 47842}
EAC 0.99pb4 | FLAC tracks level 8 | Cue+Log+M3u | Full Scans 600dpi | 272 MB + 3% Recovery
Genre: Fusion

With just his piano, his tunes, and several duet partners on Dancing on the Water, Bob James's deftness with a hook is unmistakable. His smooth-jazz group Fourplay could easily buff up "Hum Drum" and "Bogie's Boogie" into bona fide hits. On the duets with pianists Joe Sample and Keiko Matsui, James submerges his style to go inside the musical worlds of his partners. He probably wrote "Altair & Vega" and "Duo Oto Subito" for the Japanese dynamo, as it is sometimes difficult to tell on these Asian-flavored tunes where Matsui ends and James begins. Even if Sample and James weren't set on each side of the mix, it's easy to tell who's who, because Sample's rhythmic playing and solo style are unique and dominating. James does his best soloing on the duets with bassist supreme Dave Holland, including a great reading of "Last Night When We Were Young."

This is my favorite Billy Cobham album from the 80s. "Incoming" is rare today so get it if you can find it. GREAT playing by all musicians, Peter Wölpl and Wolfgang Schmidt are burning, Billy Cobham in top form, Nippy Noya gets enough space to demonstrate his great abilities and Rita Marcotulli is a tremendous player!

Bobby Lyle - Ivory Dreams (1989) {Atlantic 781938-2}
EAC 0.99pb4 | FLAC tracks level 8 | Cue+Log+M3u+MD5 | Scans 300dpi | 279 MB + 3% Recovery
Genre: Jazz Funk,Smooth Jazz

The title says it all - this is an absolutely dreamlike collection of tunes, both funky and straight ahead, written and performed by a masterful ivory tickler. After an illustrious career as mostly a sideman and/or musical director for R&B biggies like Anita Baker and Al Jarreau, this release established Lyle as a solo star, and rightfully so. Lyle's R&B background is more than apparent on the best of these eight cuts like Baker's "Been So Long," the funky "Loco-motion," and the airplay winner "Tropical."

EAC 0.99pb4 | FLAC tracks level 6 | Cue+Log+M3u+MD5 | Scans 300dpi | 274 MB + 3% Recovery
Genre: Smooth Jazz

Grammy nominated R & B/jazz guitarist/songwriter/producer Doc Powell has been a virtual musical chameleon over the past two decades, shifting from musical genres such as r & b/pop, contemporary jazz and gospel with uncanny ease and proficiency. In the process, he’s managed to craft a brilliant solo career as a resilient owner/entrepreneur of his own jazz label. And, with the release of his adventurous new self-titled set on Heads Up (August 22), Powell not only reveals a magical duality and fusion of his patented electrical guitar with a sensual blend of acoustic guitar, he also attains an artistic milestone, by celebrating the anniversary of his tenth solo project.

Joe Sample - Rainbow Seeker (1978) {MCAD-27072}
EAC 0.99pb4 | FLAC tracks level 8 | Cue+Log+M3u | Full Scans 600dpi | 238 MB + 3% Recovery
Genre: Fusion,Smooth Jazz

Back in 1978 when this set was recorded, fusion (the mixture of jazz improvisation with rock rhythms) was declining. Keyboardist Joe Sample, best-known for his work with the Crusaders, was in the process of being one of the founders of "contemporary jazz," an idiom that has since solidified into smooth jazz. Sample emphasized catchy melodies, light funk rhythms, appealing chord changes and a pop sensibility. For this accessible release, Sample is joined by the late legendary guitarist Billy Rogers, bassist Pops Popwell, his old Crusaders drummer Stix Hooper, a horn section and several guest guitarists. All eight tunes (which include "Fly with the Wings of Love" and "Islands in the Rain" ) are by the leader, who is heard throughout in melodic form, setting up a variety of light grooves that serve as superior background music.

Kazumi Watanabe - Lonesome Cat (1982) {DENON 38C38-7017}
EAC 0.99pb4 | FLAC tracks level 8 | Cue+Log+M3u+MD5 | EAC Screen | Full Scans 600dpi | 257 MB
Genre: Fusion

Kazumi Watanabe has for the past 20 years been one of the top guitarists in fusion, a rock-oriented player whose furious power does not mask a creative imagination. Watanabe studied guitar at Tokyo's Yamaha Music School and he was a recording artist while still a teenager. In 1979, he formed the group Kylyn and, in 1983, he put together the Mobo band. Several of his recordings have been made available by Gramavision and they show that he ranks up with Al DiMeola (when he is electrified) and Scott Henderson among the pacesetters in the idiom.

Lee Ritenour - Captain Fingers (1977) {Epic 512896}
EAC 0.99pb4 | FLAC tracks level 8 | Cue+Log+M3u+MD5 | EAC Screen | Full Scans 600dpi | 260 MB
Genre: Fusion

Captain Fingers - Lee Ritenour's second studio album, and what a fantastic album it is! After his first album "First Course", critics complained, saying that his music was too lightweight. This album was his response. Here you will find some of the greatest jazz musicians of the fusion era working in an incredibly tight studio setting led by Captain Fingers himself, Lee Ritenour! From the opening riff of the title track, you know that you're going to be in for a full-on, in-your-face jazz/rock/funk fusion experience.

Lee Ritenour - Rit's House (2002) {Verve}
EAC 0.99pb5 | FLAC tracks level 8 | Cue+Log+M3u+MD5 | EAC Screen | Full Scans 600dpi | 348 MB
Genre: Smooth Jazz

The old Rit is back! His smiling, swaggering guitar-playing alter ego has resurfaced, and he's invited all his friends over for a tumultuous jam, including George Duke, Marcus Miller, and Peter Erskine. Red-hot organist Joey DeFrancesco brings the Wes Montgomery out of Ritenour on the corner of "78th & 3rd," and a killer overhaul of Dave Grusin's movie theme "Three Days of the Condor," re-titled "Condor," is a reminder that Rit was kicking the smooth jazz before they had a name for it.

EAC 0.99pb4 | FLAC tracks level 8 | Cue+Log+M3u+MD5 | EAC Screen | Full Scans 600dpi | 413 MB
Genre: Fusion

Outstanding interplay between refined musicians, stunning sound quality, and great song writing. Plus the tracks flow seemlessly into each other as if making an empirical statement or telling a story.The genre is clearly jazz fusion, but elements of pure straight-ahead and latin jazz permeate throughout.
