Editorial Reviews

2011 album from the Jazz guitarist. The music is swinging, funky, lush and exciting from note one, and stays that way to the very last drop. Chuck's fans will find the excellence in playing, sound, and production that they have come to expect from him, as well experiencing a side of the artist that they may have never heard before.

If you are or have been a Chuck Loeb fan,and you were disappointed with some of his recent offerings; then you have to get this album. Just one play through and I feel it is the best work he has done in awhile. The album is true to its title, it is plain and simply great.Chuck has always been a great arranger,but the mix on this album is a departure from his "formula" and it is teriffic. Chuck, I hope this album is huge for you.

Chuck Loeb is too good a player to be stuck in the smooth jazz genre. Smooth jazz is good entertainment for the masses,matter of fact it should be quantified as instrumental pop, but it's far from the artistic quality that most classic styles of Jazz are. This is a solid effort by Loeb that falls somewhere between classic and post bop jazz that requires educated listeners to appreciate--Wes and Jimmy would be proud.It sounds as if some actual thought went into the process of making it. Not every smooth jazzer is talented enough to create this kind of project so keep it up Chuck and lose the instrumental pop er, I mean smooth jazz, you're way better than that.

I just heard the name Chuck Loeb several times but never listen really,, what a mistake!!! I am a 60 year old jazzguitarist from Sweden raised with the music of Wes Montgomery George Benson Grant Green 6 Kenny Burrell...it s just so wonderful finding a new musician that plays his way straight into your heart. I heard organ player Pat Bianchi several times and he is a favorite player since long and his support here as well as solos are just awesome not to mention legendary drummer Harvey Manson..closely connected to George Benson.
I think that more or less all tunes are great on this album..from the first Deep Inner Groove (based on the chord progresion of Stanley Turrentines classis tune "Sugar") via The great " e com esse que vou eu" where Carmen Questa does a wonderful vocal to the final and heartbreaking "The Hello" In addition very nice trumpet solo on "Red Suede Shoes" by german star Till Brönner
All in all Highly recommended

One of the finest guitarists in contemporary jazz today ventures out with his own label and a return to the organ trio sound that was his earliest influence as a jazz guitarist. Recalling great duos like Wes Montgomery and Jimmy Smith, Mr. Loeb has created his own incredible trio sound by combining forces with Fourplay band-mate Harvey Mason on drums and rising B-3 star Pat Bianchi, with compelling performances from his wife Carmen Cuesta and daughter Lizzie Loeb, as well as guest shots from names like Will Lee, Till Bronner, and Eric Marienthal. PLAIN`n'SIMPLE is outstanding on every level... from concept to compositions to players... so even if your experience with Chuck Loeb has only been in the Smooth Jazz arena, you're going to love this new project. In Chuck's own words, "...this recording truly captures the essence of who I am as a guitarist." It's an absolute must-have... brilliant! ~SCOTT O'BRIEN

At last a recording i've been waiting for for years.Chuck Loeb is in my humble opinion one of the greatest jazz guitarists of our age,but always recording smooth jazz which i like very much too by the way.Makes you very curious what a straight jazz recording would sound like.Well Plain 'n simple GREAT!!
This is one of the best jazz recordings in years.I don't mind if he's playing smooth jazz for the rest of his life,but every now and then he should record something like this.Sometimes it's like listening to Pat Martino or Wes Montgomery or even Charlie Parker and that's the way i like it. The man has an amazing feeling for melody so his own compositions sound just as good as the standards
He is probably one of the most underestimated jazz guitarists in the world.

Chuck Loeb is hitting his strides big time on this new and exciting groove fest. With Harvey Mason on drums and Pat Bianchi on organ (by the way I've never heard of Pat, but he's an amazing player) Chuck let's loose with some consummate straight ahead jazz sets, highlight being The Blues App. This track's on heavy rotation on my CD player and exemplifies what is great about American jazz music. I love Chuck in this format and it clearly shows what a versatile guitarist he is. Keep it pumpin' Chuck!

Red Suede Shoes is awesome!I love the acid jazz riffs from Chuck and the organist. The whole song has the small club feel to it. Who's the trumpet player?
