Format: Audio CD
Eric Marienthal's CD titled Sweet Talk is definitely something good in the realm of beautiful smooth jazz. Comprised of 11 tracks totaling almost 47 minutes in length, this CD is filled with some sweet highlights that are worth every minute of exposure to its charm.

Eric kicks off the album on alto sax with "Uptown," an outstanding collaboration with Jeff Lorber who contributes his best on keyboards and drum programming. "Secrets" continues the hand-in-glove Marienthal/Lorber collaboration; this song could be imagined on one of Jeff's album's, but Eric takes a mellow approach with his wonderfully melodic touch on romantic jazz sax.

"All I Am," written by Dave Kochanski (formerly of the Rippingtons) is an up-tempo number featuring Kochanski on keyboards and Gene Lake on drum kit; this song will have you toe tapping, and it features Eric playing a duet with Jeff Mironov on guitar. Eric covers the outstanding Stevie Wonder song "Tell Me Something Good" arranged by Marienthal and Lorber. This tune features little known Cassandra Reed delivering a soulful performance on vocals.

The outstanding title track "Sweet Talk" is buried in the middle of the album. It's a lyrical tune that engages the listener on a musical and emotional level. Co-composed by Eric and his son Robert, Scott Breadman came over from the Rippingtons to lend percussive talent while bassist Melvin Lee Davis over-delivers on 7 string contra bass guitar. Eric vocalizes on his alto sax while Davis provides an oh-so-fine scat vocal and Gannin Arnold supplies melodic accents on acoustic and electric guitars.

"Caprichosa" (meaning whimsical, fanciful, impulsive), the longest song on the CD at 5:15, is a ballad written by Brazilian composers Ivan Lins and Fatima Guedes.

Eric gets out of his comfort zone in L.A. and ventures forth to the Big Apple to record this infectious,hook laden set of smooth jazz tunes.
Jason Miles, a well known New York producer (Gato Barbieri, To Grover with Love) contributes his talents. One holdover from previous recordings is longtime collaborator Jeff Lorber co-writing 3 songs, including the radio favorite "Uptown" featuring a funky upbeat melody & rhythm track; "Secrets" with its hook-filled chord changes and the guitar call and response of Sypra Gyra's Julio Fernandez; and "Nickel Plated" reminiscent of that David Sanborn influenced soulful uptown New York vibe.
Former longtime Rippingtons keyboardist Dave Kochanski contributes a kick-ass tune "All I Am" and the funky-jazzy gem
"Mist Trail."

Music for the those romantic moments include the title track "Sweet Talk" co-written by Eric and his 13 year-old son
Robert, featuring a Brazilian style vocalese by Melvin Davis, a pretty melody. Keeping it in the family the cover photo features Eric's wife Lee Ann. The smooth "Moonlight" from guitarist Chuck Loeb and a love song from famed Brazilian composer and singer Ivan Lins, "Caprichosa" with lyrics by Fatima Guedes; rounding out the mellow tracks is "Laguna."
The New York studio cats such as Steely Dan bassist Tom Barney, Gene Lake on drums (David Sanborn, Brecker Brothers), Will Lee on bass (Letterman show), Jeff Mironov and Dean Brown on guitar contribute a uptown vibe to this recording. Overall one of the
best collections offered in a long time from an A-list contemporary jazz artist.
