Fast becoming one of smooth jazz's hookiest songwriters, Steve Cole scored two No. 1 radio hits off his 1998 debut, Stay Awhile. No doubt that means program directors will continue to favor those tunes, but, hopefully, it won't be at the expense of the takes-one-listen-only-to-hum craftsmanship of many of the tracks on the follow-up, Between Us. Cole has the notion of "quick verse, get to the brassy hook" down to such a science that it may take a few listens to realize that the opening tracks, "Got It Goin' On" and "From the Start," are two different songs. On both, producer Brian Culbertson provides the simmering retro keyboard atmospheres beneath silky, laid-back tenor lines, but only for brief respites between the perfect choruses, on which Cole textures tenor with multiple-alto backing tracks. Cole sticks with this approach while varying rhythms throughout the disc, as if holding back on us throughout the verse sections and then making sure his hooks are amplified by brass, so that we keep wanting him to return to them. He and Culbertson take this technique to new and exciting levels on a slow-simmering cover of TLC's "Waterfalls," texturing a horn section lead melody with another multiple-horn harmony section; every few beats, Cole jumps out of the pattern to blow a cool tenor improvisation. Cole is a muscular tenor player by trade, but he will no doubt attract the mush lovers with his very tender soprano beauty on "For Your Love." --Jonathan Widran

5.0 out of 5 stars Warm and funky September 7, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Looking for a CD to liven up a dinner party or just to cheer you up, while sitting in front of the computer, or curling with your favourite book? You will love Steve Cole and his jazzy and groovy CD. The CD has a perfect start with "I Got It Goin' On" - so warm and inviting. As the CD progresses, you would also find some gems, like track #5, "For Your Love" - lush and sensual; or TLC's classic "Waterfalls". For those who love jazz and saxophone, and looking for some warm and sensual music that is not too hard to 'comprehend', Steve Cole's "Between Us" is perfect.

4.0 out of 5 stars Will only grow musically with each project December 11, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is a fine effort by Steve Cole. Musically laiden with recurring themes and the production work of Brian Culbertson this is a keeper for my collection. Not yet up to par with the big boys ie, Richard Elliot, Boney James and Kim Waters, Steve is getting his smooth tracks together. This project starts with the jazzy first cut Got it Goin On, which is the one getting the most air time on the radio. However its my opinion that the two best cuts are track # 3 Take Me Home To You and #4 So Into You ( Which is the best track on this CD ). " So Into You " is smooth and yet funky with a great beat and a fine musical accompyment. With Brian Culbertson on Keys and Michael White on drums and Luis Conte on percussion your toe will be a-tappen. Steve can only grow with each musical project.

Just about every single track is a real winner! Great sound and style plus exciting, upbeat tunes. I don't think any smooth jazz lover could be disappointed by purchasing this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fine Musicianship / Exquisite Textures / Downlow Funk November 14, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Often you read a review and you can pretty well tell the artist's friends and family have been sumbitting their rather stilted views. This is a fine CD however I think his first effort was better quality and more focused. I mean if you're gonna be funky let loose a la Kirk Whalum or Gerald Albright don't just experiment. I recommend this CD, but I guarantee there will be tracks that you will skip over.....

5.0 out of 5 stars Steve Cole is the best! August 6, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I bought Steve's first CD two years ago after hearing him on the radio and loved it. Ever since, I have been waiting for his next release - and Steve has exceeded my expectations! His distinctive sax sound is warm and rich - very romantic, yet this album is upbeat and a bit funky too. I love the grooves and sexy feel to all the tracks - this is one to share! Thanks, Steve!

5.0 out of 5 stars Smooth jazz with a personality ! A must have March 8, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I discovered Steve Cole while travelling to the US west coast and listening to smooth jazz radio stations. "Between us" definitely has to belong to your collection of smooth jazz CDs. The Steve Cole touch is here : soft, revitalizing, wonderfully appealling. Steve, when do you come over to France for a concert ?

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Companionship February 17, 2001
By Stephen
Format:Audio CD
This CD is a great companion for a cozy evening by the fire or for a lazy Sunday afternoon. This is my first purchase of this artist and I'm glad Amazon recommended it to me.
I prefer strictly instrumental CDs and don't know why contemporary jazz artists feel compelled to put vocal tracks in the middle of great instrumental tracks. This CD contains only one vocal track and it doesn't seem to have the same feel as the rest of the CD.
All in all, I am really enjoying this CD and will look for other works by this artist.

4.0 out of 5 stars Steve Cole is the man!! February 20, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is a CD that is unique in that you will like if not love most every title on it. The first two titles are especially good! I bought the first album and was pleased; he has however out done himself with this album (Between Us). I look forward to the next CD w/ anxious anticipation!
