Five APPEALING Stars! This is a great "smooth jazz", adult contemporary music performance by leader, composer and master percussionist George Jinda who is probably best known as the other half of the potent Grammy-nominated duo "Special EFX" along with guitarist and group originator Chieli Minucci: a duo that used occasional musical guests such as McCoy Tyner to fill out their ranks, although Jinda and Minucci performed alone at times to great acclaim. The music is mostly beautiful themes, infectious latin beats, and deeper solo and group performances than the usual smooth jazz music.

This group is called "George Jinda and World News" and consists of leader Jinda on percussion, Randy Roos on guitar and guitar synthesizers, Szakcsi on acoustic grand piano, and Gerald Veasley on electric bass. Guests include saxophonist Mark Johnson, drummer Lionel Cordew, vocalist Carol Vito, and Gabor Bado on acoustic rhythm guitar.

The 'best of the best' begins with the awesome lilting, latin-tempo "With A Message" that received airplay in Los Angeles back in the day. It features a beautiful main theme and endless vamps by Jinda, Szakcsi and some crucial Veasley moves that allow Szakcsi and Roos to create floating shimmering improvisations. "Springshot" is funky and smooth party music. The marvelous, uptempo "Luscious Rebecca" is dominated by the sound of a marimba but it's probably Roos' guitar synthesizer, with Veasley and Jinda really burning it up in the background. "It Could Have Been You" is a beautiful ballad written by Jinda and Szaksci with Roos and Szaksci creating gorgeous sensitive improvisations.

There are some really nice cuts in this album. Quite unlike some albums where you have one or two nice tracks.
