Editorial Reviews

More than a decade ago, guitarist and vocalist Steve Oliver burst onto the contemporary jazz scene with a sound so fresh, so positive, so bright, that he immediately became a favorite on radio stations with songs like West End and Highway One. The Weather Channel loved his music so much it put Right Direction into heavy rotation during its local weather breaks. Smooth Jazz News magazine named Oliver its Debut Artist of the Year. Now, after four studio CDs, a Christmas project and a CD that captured his infectious live-on-stage energy, Oliver on March 30 returns with Global Kiss on SOM Entertainment. As the title makes clear, Global Kiss expands Oliver s repertoire with its world-music energy while retaining the lyrical melodies and song hooks that have made him a fan favorite. 12 all-new original songs, all written by Oliver. Although Oliver plays a guitar synth he designed for the Carvin guitar company one on which he can trigger orchestral, brass, piano and other sounds Global Kiss is enhanced by top-notch studio musicians and several songs were recorded live in the studio. Oliver has one of the most compelling and warm voices in contemporary jazz, which he shows on Global Kiss three vocal tracks: Life Goes On, Fearless and Take Me Away (Distant Shore). Influenced by the world-music sounds of timeless artists such as Peter Gabriel, Pat Metheny and Ralph Towner, as well as the wordplay of more contemporary artists like John Mayer and Jason Mraz. Steve Oliver, an innovative artist using his guitar and voice like no one else.

Gifted guitarman Steve Oliver is back and in great fashion. His latest work "Global Kiss" proves one more time his versatility and creative touch throughout the whole album. Produced by him and Spyro Gyro's keyboardist Tom Schuman this new work released on March of this year displays a high level of musicianship given the variety of styles that Steve likes to explore. From the "sure-fire" smooth jazz hit in the opening track "Fun in the Sun" featuring new sax sensation Darren Rahn and my favorite "True Vision" with stellar guests like Marion Meadows on soprano, Bob Baldwin on piano and Bonny B. on drums to latin flavored "Ba Aye" which includes another outstanding line-up (Tom Schuman on keyboards and piano, Will Donato on sax, Alan Hewitt on vibes and marimba and Spyro Gyra's Bonny B on drums besides Rochon Westmoreland on bass and Humberto Vela, percussion) Steve feels "at home". In between world music numbers like the title track and "Sunlight Within" alternate with beautiful ballads like "Fearless" and "Take me away, Distant Shore" sung by Steve to perfection. By the way, it's time for an all-vocal album (I still remember his amazing cover of Buffalo Springfield's "For What it's worth"), the talent is there and it should be an interesting experience given the right tunes. This album provides a well crafted set of songs and different styles where the listener will enjoy the exquisite talent of this brilliant musician.

After listening to Steve's music for about 10 years now,I can honestly say I think this CD displays some of Steve's best guitar playing. I think Steve has found a new niche with his Carvin guitars,that by the way he helped to create. The rhytmic groove of this CD is very special with the likes of Bonnie B. of Spyro Gyra fame on drums and long time mate Humberto Vela with his special talents on percussion.Add in some soulful sax from friend Will Donato and fine keyboard playing from Alan Hewitt,Nate Harasim and friend and co-producer Tom Schuman(Spyro Gyra original)and you come up with a very well thought out and written collection of tunes. Steve is very well headed towards the forefront of todays Jazz scene.This man has a talent like no other and pours his talent and love of music into his projects. I highly recommend picking up this CD for a very enjoyable musical experience.

A very light and playful album by Mr.Oliver but as always very entertaining.
Not as memorable as his last 2 releases (3d being my fave release to date) but sits well amongst them.
Long road is my fave track on this and unfortunately nothing else reflected along these lines but I am sure Steve Oliver fans will not be disappointed.
