Editorial Reviews

The reigning merchant of Soul Jazz, Richard Elliot invites loyal fans and newcomers alike to celebrate 25 years since the release of his debut album Initial Approach. In the Zone, a grooving, funked up, horn splashed collection that finds the energized-as-ever tenor saxophonist paying homage to the pioneering instrumental artists of his formative years ( 70s-early 80s) whose brilliance and musical innovations inspired his own.

Drawing on the influences of legends like Grover Washington, Jr., Bob James and David Sanborn, Elliot fashions the perfect contemporary jazz complement to Rock Steady, his 2009 recording that was inspired by the great R&B artists he grew up listening to; that collection debuted at #5 on the Billboard Jazz Album chart and remained on the list for over 40 weeks.

In The Zone includes a simmering, hypnotic retro-soul cover of Inner City Blues (Makes Me Wanna Holler), a Marvin Gaye staple whose original instrumental version marked Washington s first session as a leader. Beyond that, the collection is driven by 9 powerful retro-flavored original songs penned by Elliot and co-producer Jeff Lorber, who share a colorful collaborative history over the past 10 years. The two played numerous shows in the early 2000s as part of the all-star Groovin For Grover tour (with Gerald Albright and Paul Taylor) and have worked together on various tracks on Elliot s recordings Crush (2001), Ricochet (2003), Metro Blue (2005), RnR (Elliot s hit dual 2007 recording with trumpet great Rick Braun) and Rock Steady.

Another great CD by Richard, I am glad to see he is still on top of his game. The entire CD is enjoyable and does not seem to have any repeated themes while maintaining his signature sound... thanks Mr. Elliot for another awesome CD....Paul

Richard Elliot's 2011 release "In The Zone" is a typically fine effort for the veteran saxman. Every single tune on this CD is first rate and it certainly doesn't hurt that Jeff Lorber has his hands in this project. Any time Jeff shows up, the outcome is ALWAYS good. I wish I had a hundred smooth jazz CD's using this blueprint. Also, Richard gets the full five star treatment for keeping his sax front and center, where it belongs, and doesn't bow down to the totally false smooth jazz perception that you have to include vocal tracks to sell a smooth jazz CD. This is a winning entry. Don't change a thing, Richard!!

When I told you about Richard's previous release, ROCK STEADY awhile back, I wrote a prescription for that album as a way to stay positive in what can be a very un-positive World. Just looking over the current headlines, I'd say we're all ready for another course of treatment, and Mr. Elliot has happily obliged, with his newest album, IN THE ZONE. More great, fresh, signature Richard Elliot performances, starting with the first radio single (and smash hit) "Boom Town," are sure to leave you feeling better. Co-produced with Jeff Lorber, this CD is just one more example of why Richard Elliot continues to be a true Smooth Jazz superstar. Nine originals and one awesome cover (Marvin Gaye's "Inner City Blues") have all the elements that have made Mr. Elliot's music so appealing for all these many years. Get it, listen to it, groove to it, and feel great ~SCOTT O'BRIEN
