Biography

PAUL HARDCASTLE created the soundtrack to the mid 80’s. His iconic track 19 was an international mega hit (getting to number one in 13 countries) and with its hard-hitting lyrics and narrative about the Vietnam War, it captured the mood of a generation and created a sound for the era.

During the second half of the 1980s, Paul concentrated his efforts on studio work. He produced ... Read more in Amazon's Paul Hardcastle Store

4.0 out of 5 stars BlackAmarillo.com Review February 23, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Paul Hardcastle has released his 7th self entitled project "VII" as always he brings the unique futuristic melodies that has given him the title "Father of Quiet Storm Jazz" and continues to not disappoint.
This 10 songs project consists of a mixture of smooth/chill jazz, new age & a "dance/house/boogie" groove that will set you into another zone.

1) The Truth (Shall Set You Free) is a 11 minute song that will take you on a musical journey with 3 different phases. Phase I (0.00- 5:42) a smooth percussion and futuristic melodic groove with an Asiatic chant that's setting the mood of the journey. Phase II (5:43- 7:52) Paul kicks in a uptempo beat on top of the Asiatic chant as you arrive in the heart of journey. Phase III (7:53- 11:29) Paul changes the whole entire melody into another smooth laid back groove on top of beautiful background voices that will take you to the end of the journey.

2) No Stress At All- Paul uses the sample of Kool & The Gang "Summer Madness" and made it his own. Right now this song is #3 on the Smooth Jazz Radio charts and won't be surprised that it will hit #1 by next week. This is definitely one of my favorite songs on this project.

3) Summer Love- Is a smooth laid back R&B feel with daughter "Maxine" on vocals. another favorite of mine.

4) Crystal Whisper- a smooth jazz/ new age feel. Great highway music but a bit too lull for me.

5) Easy Street- The piano rift sounds like a take off of Bob James "Westchester Lady" A smooth funky groove with Rock Hendricks on Sax.

6) Dance Of The Wind- This is my top favorite cut off this project. This song to me is why Paul Hardcastle is in a league of his own when it comes to smooth/chill "quiet storm" jazz.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb! February 19, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I have been a long time Paul Hardcastle fan and enjoyed his music. I have other songs that I have compiled from him (via emusic, etc.), but this is the first time I have bought a complete Hardcastle album. When it comes to his music, I am never disappointed. It is EXTREMELY rare find a tune that you dislike. This is one of those albums where you like all the tracks being played. BRAVO, once again Mr. Hardcastle!

4.0 out of 5 stars Paul does it again March 20, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed all of the tracks. Paul went into a more existential bag with this one. I only gave it four stars because when you become accustomed to superiority and receive excellence, there is a slight disappointment. Paul is still one of the best.

4.0 out of 5 stars GOOD! March 15, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Good but not up to the standards of his early cds. Although one could say that he did set really high standards for himself. Hard to maintain such high standards.
