"hold on for a rendezvous with shades of Crossroads",
This review is from: Turn Up the Heat (Audio CD)
A great creative musician from the Chick Corea Eleltric Band gives jazz fans what they crave...outstanding performances with a style that is unmatched...like his comrades Dave Koz and Kenny G., Marienthal turns up the heat with this latest from Peak Records.
Remember his past ventures (in my music collection) ~ "Shaken Not Stirred", with David Benoit is simply awesome...but the favorite that immediately comes to mind is "Crossroads", featuring the track "Hide & Seek", is a stand out with others standing in the wings.
Marienthal shows the world of jazz, he is definitely mixing the right element of cool sounds with team-mates appearing as backups, the likes of Russ Freeman, Jeff Lorber, Rick Braun, Robben Ford...and the list goes on, gotta love it...all eleven tracks have the right touch, but my pick is "LEFTY'S LOUNGE", demonstrates the perfect distinctive blend of what jazz is all about ~ TOTAL ENJOYMENT!
Total Time: 48:11 on 11 Tracks ~ Peak PKD-8503-2 ~ (2001)
