You can't complain when you put Lee Ritenour on guitar, Nathan East on Bass, Bob James on keys and Harvey Mason on drums. The kings of smooth jazz all joining together to form Fourplay, and release another incredible album in "Elixir". The musicians have been successful on their own, and when mixed together, it is hard not to put out something of this caliber.
The album is packed with good smooth jazz, mostly written by the guys in the band. There are some exceptional gems here like "Magic Carpet Ride" with some great solos from Ritenour and James. Phil Collins lends his voice and his lyrics to "Why Can't It Wait Till Morning", which is well done by the band and Collins' voice is very fitting. The title track is very jazzy, and what a great sound from Ritenour. "Play Lady Play" is a little more funky and allows East to step forward and slap his bass around a bit. "Licorice" also has a good sound.
I was pleased with this release from Fourplay, and it gets a lot of airplay from my smooth jazz collection. Fourplay is definitely a band worth pursuing, as well are each of the guys in the band. I have been a large fan of Ritenour and came across his work with Fourplay in pursuing him. His solo stuff is exceptional, and I recommend his Wes Montgomery tribute, "Wes Bound".

The song, "Why Can't Wait Until Morning" is perhaps the most beautiful song, I've ever experienced. The blend of seductive piano, guitar, and Phil Collins is awesomely well matched. The pictures that it brings to my mind tell a story that every feeling soul can relate to. It's mesmorizing. The whole CD is a masterpiece of smoothies -- progressive jazz style. Well done, Fourplay...well done!

this has got to be one of the best albums i have heard in quite some time.don't let the smooth sound fool you. there's so much going on here. listen to how the drummer accents,puncuates, and sparks the band with just the right rythyms and fills. he has achieved true mastery of his instrument.the keyboards color the sound,while adding harmonic texture on several levels. he also adds an oh so understated emphasis to the rythym. the bass player is the anchor in this group,yet he can improvise his bass runs in such a way that he leads you into the changes effortlessly.his groves are as funky as anyone . he's done his homework. the guitar player is a virtuoso, yet he dosen't remind you of it all the time. he knows when to play rythym,knows when to comp,and his solos are brilliant. this is truly an album of masters.hats off to Bob James,Harvey Mason,Nathan East,Lee Rit.et.al.

I really liked this CD, I didn't think I would enjoy it but I actually did! I started my collection of FourPlay by purchasing Yes Please! I now have all of them! Great Listening and I'm very happy I added them to my CD collection!

"Elixir" is my second favorite Fourplay album. I got turned onto them from my father. He had bought their first album and I really emjoyed it. Each time they came out with another one, I picked it up. Elixir came along and blew me away! One of my favorite smooth jazz CD's. The other Fourplay CD I really like is "Yes, Please". I have a review on that one also. If you want the definitive collection of Fourplay, get all of them, up to "Heartfelt". "Heartfelt" is OK, but they seem to be going in another direction with their music. I wouldn't recommend "Journey". "Elixir" is a definate "must have" for the smooth jazz fan!!

If you can count on anything other than the consistency of God's unchanging hand, it's Fourplay! They have yet to disappoint me.

This is a true gem. The production quality here is superb, the bass is nice and low and on even a mediocre system it feels the room beautifully. Very good cuddle music in front of a fire, under a blanket with that special someone,(or someone you are trying to convert to 'special'). I love this CD, I use to play this Cd at my retail sales job to sell audio systems.

Elixir is my favorite Fourplay album. A solid album all the way through. Lee Ritenour really shine on this album and its ironic that this was his last album as a member of Fourplay. A must have for your smooth jazz collection.
