I own everything that Brian Culbertson has ever done, and he's on my automatic purchase list. This new release, for the most part, delivers the goods. The instrumental tracks are 4-star outstanding tracks and a case could be made that this is some of his best work to date. My beef with this new release is the vocal tracks. First, he comes out of the gate with a gimmicky track featuring Sinbad in the intro and some incredibly lame and inane vocals by Chuck Brown. Here's an idea for ya Chuck...Shut Up!!! If the vocals would have been jettisoned from this track it would have been one of the killer tracks on the album, if not the best track. Brian, you need to understand that the music is timeless, but all this gimicky trash gets old really fast when you listen to the tracks repeatedly. Then there's a couple of bland R&B tracks. Look Brian, if I want to hear Kenny Latimore and Avant (I don't), I would buy their CDs. Why you want to be reduced to being a session player on 4 tracks of your own CD completely evades me. Why don't you release the vocal tracks as a side project "Brian and the Culbertones" or something like that, and just PLAY on your own CDs.

Another good one from Brian Culbertson. Another reviewer used the word "consistent", which is definitely true, as in consistently good. Put it on and enjoy from start to finish.

A few weeks ago I reviewed "Diamonds" by Jonathan Fritzen and pronounced it smooth jazz album of 2010. In my review of his previous album, "VIP," I made the quote "move over Brian Culbertson, there's a new kid on the block."

I feel I must now eat my words because Brian Culbertson has come up with arguably the best album of the last 5 years and without a shadow of a doubt his best album ever.

He has been gradually moving away from the smooth jazz tag over his last couple of projects and now offers an album of diversity that incorporates funk, soul, new age, pop and of course smooth jazz.

The opening track featuring gogo maestro Chuck Brown would have been the best track on his last album "Bringing Back The Funk." We are then treated to guest vocalist Kenny Lattimore on "Another Love" and shortly afterwards guest vocalist Brian McKnight on "Out OnThe Floor." Now, as a lover of real soul music, I hate the dirge like R & B artists of the day but these two singers have successfully transcended that genre and are genuine bonafide soul singers with fantastic voices and credibility and acceptability within soul circles and Brian could not have chosen two better guests. There is a further vocal track, "Skies Wide Open," featuring Avant, who I am not familiar with but this is another great track, and the lead single. The final vocal offering "Don't You Know Me By Now" is the only track that has me reaching for the skip button.

And so to a clutch of fantastic instrumental tracks. The piano playing on "It's Time" is so powerful you half expect the instrument to bounce through your speakers!

I've heard Brian's music for awhile, just never got around to buying any of his music. Glad I got this CD as my first, nice variety and collaborations with other good musicians

I would give this cd 10 Stars if I could.

I am an avid Jazz enthusiast and I know that some jazz lovers may be a little disappointed. To those critics "Chill Out" This CD is FUN!

I love XII. It is very original. Brian has managed to merge three generations of music greats on one cd. In fact he has managed to create a funky tune entitled "Feelin' It" featuring Chuck Brown (Bustin' Loose), Sinbad, Ray Parker, Jr. (Radio)and Faith Evans.

A true musician embraces many forms and types of music. They can gleen something from various genre. This is how original music is created. Look at the great Herbie Hancock. He was great in the '60s and he is still going strong in 2010. He couldn't do it if he was musically stagnated.

Remember, musicians are artist and every so often artist have to break loose, enjoy themselves and experiment. Just because they are jazz musicians do not mean that they don't enjoy other music.

To Brian Culbertson keep doing what you're doing. We love it!

Brian has done it again!! I initially said that Brian's new CD was just "pretty good" and I gave it 3-1/2 stars. However after LISTENING to the ENTRIE CD, I felt compelled to update my review. This CD is not just pretty good, its VERY GOOD and I give it 4.5 stars!! I was a bit skeptical at first by the guest singers on the CD, Avant, Faith, and Brian McKnight, however after taking the time to listen to the entire CD, the overall CD definitely outweighs the 1 or 2 not so good collaborations. Im not saying that the collaborations aren't good, but Brian's solo efforts are the bomb!! I definitely know what Brian was trying to do and it works however I just would've liked to have heard collaborations with maybe Will Downing, Chaka Khan, or even Joe. If you like Brian Culbertson, then this CD is classic Brian!! Thanks B...it was worth the wait! :-)
