5.0 out of 5 stars Another Outstandng Album October 25, 2010
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
How does a group that is on its third guitarist maintain a consistent sound and style? I don't know but Fourplay HAS figured it out. Fourplay fans will find all the things they love about the group with the additional accent of Chuck Leob's 6 string.

What do all the current and past Fourplay guitarists have in common? It's their ability to play with Bob James, Nathan East and Harvey Mason, on their own terms and for the fellas to accept the guitarits distinctive styles in stride. That said, I think Chuck Leob brings a lyricism that has been missing from the group for some time.

The standout cuts will be the vocal collaborations including the homage to Teddy Pendergrass "Love TKO" featuring Rubin Studdard. It's every bit as soulful as the original, but with the Fourplay sound. The collaboration with Anita Baker "You're My Thrill" sent a shiver up my spine. Expect Grammy nominations.

But long time listeners will also appreciate the re-emergence of some of the individual voices of the players. I mean that literally. Nathan East delivers a wonderful vocal performance on "I'll Still Be Loving You." It's the perfect kind of song for a weekend winter morning.

In sum, this is another outstanding album from Fourplay that longtime and new listeners can enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars SmoothJazz.com Review October 31, 2010
Format:Audio CD
It's hard to wrap my head around the fact that's it's been twenty years since this band debuted as contemporary jazz's first super group... individually they are stunning, together they are unstoppable. Bob James, Harvey Mason and Nathan East have been holding down their 3 corners of the foursome since the beginning while legendary guitarists Lee Ritenour and Larry Carlton have moved on leaving the coveted guitar slot of the Fourplay legacy open... another worthy contender steps in, renown guitarist/composer Chuck Loeb debuts on LET'S TOUCH THE SKY with contributions that Bob James calls "very much a reflection of the Fourplay philosophy of team spirt." Loeb inaugurates the new project with his tune "3rd Degree" (in reference to his role as the 3rd guitarist) as the first radio single. Other big news here is that the project includes stirring performances by guest vocalists Anita Baker on the jaw dropping "You're My Thrill" and American Idol's Ruben Studdard impeccably covering the classic "Love TKO." Never settle for practical goals when, in fact you can reach the lofty ones... let's touch the sky!

4.0 out of 5 stars The best of a dying genre November 17, 2010
Format:Audio CD
These guys, very fine musicians all, have created an album that pleases the right and left brain. Taste, chops, respect, conversation, all the good stuff is happening in bushels. But, as good as they are, as finely crafted as the work is, it still is basically a genre that is over. In an effort to remain relevant to the general public, their more creative tunes are balanced with a healthy dose of pop pablum. Nothing wrong with pop pablum if that's your preference, but if so, there are so many more qualified sources... Having said all that, I still enjoy listening to four awesome players balancing virtuosity and taste, accessibility with harmonic sophistication, self-indulgence with team spirit. Many lessons are on offer for those few musicians who actually want to play instruments together all at the same time. As for the easy-listening pop, well, there's always the "next" button...

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Jazz CD! November 12, 2010
Format:Audio CD
There's not much to say except that Fourplay is on top of their game. With Chuck Loeb in the mix, the band certainly has a different vibe but continues to display the same technical skill and great sounds I'm used to. I've been a Fourplay fan for the last 12 years or so after seeing them perform at a strange club in San Antonio, TX. I never expected them to keep rocking the house in 2010! If you're a fan of jazz...no scratch that...if you're a fan of music in general, pick up this CD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fourplay Can Still Touch The Sky May 30, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've been listening to Fourplay from the very begining when they released thier first CD in 1990.
Let's Touch The Sky is one of my favorate Fourplay CD's. Chuck Loeb is a nice fit to the group. I really enjoy the vocal tracks on this CD Nathan East on I'll Still Be Loving You, Ruben Studdard on the classic Love TKO and it is nice to hear Anita Baker on You're A Thrill. My fvorate instrumental on the CD is Chuck Loeb's Above And Beyond. Let's hope that Fourplay's Success continues for many years to come!

Jeff

5.0 out of 5 stars A REAL RELAXANT, A TRUE SOURCE OF INNER PEACE. December 28, 2010
Format:Audio CD
HELLO my friends, I own all of FOURPLAY high quality albums, should I review them all,they are all 5 stars to me!!. real instruments delivering splended, melodious, sweet soothing sound!!. Dotted by vocals from some of the best voices in the business, FOURPLAY is my very favourite instrumental group!!
"LET'S TOUCH THE SKY" is the thier latest album and just like the others it sure soothes my soul, standouts are "LETS TOUCH THE SKY", "I'LL STILL BE LOVING YOU" with easy vocals by NATHAN EAST, yes, real nice! "GENTLE GIANT", "A NIGHT IN RIO" is just dandy too!!.RUBEN STUDDARD'S tribute to TEDDY PENDERGRASS "LOVE TKO",is so very well done! I love it it's beautiful. "ABOVE AND BEYOND" & "GOLDEN FADERS" are smooth yet lively pieces, topping off this well done cake is "YOU'RE MY THRILL", with the enchanting ANITA BAKER, this song could never be better!! It's my most loved song on this project,a real relaxant!!
This is the kind of album you lay in your couch after a hard days work with your special someone and just drift away...if you're into things like that then I recomend this soother to you...
