Not before familiar with Beegie Adair, I am so pleased by this jazz sampler.
Every song is top notch quality, perfect high class jazz, and a blessing to the room it's playing in. The songs aren't jam sessions, they are works of art.
I look forward to listening to more from Beegie Adair.

This is probably the first Sampler from Amazon I've actually wanted to keep, and I've listened through many. Beautiful selection of jazz that you'll probably listen to again and again.

None of the song truly speak to my soul, but I must say it seems like a perfect non intrusive set list of mellow jazz to have in the back ground of any shower, dinner party, or other gathering. I gave it a full listen while preparing dinner and enjoyed it. Will it replace my go to regulars, that would be a no but as you can sence from the samples this music has a nice relaxing while tasting wine kinda feel. I love all kinds of music so I welcome this into my collection. It is defently worth a look.

You are not going to find a better collection of smooth jazz anywhere - free or otherwise. No risk here.

This is a nice mix of jazz that ranges from soothing to upbeat. You can turn on the music and let it play in the background; it will enhance the mood without becoming overbearing and hogging everyone's attention. If I close my eyes, the songs make me feel like I'm listening to a band playing from the gazebo in the center of a park during a summer stroll.

"Alexander's Ragtime Band" - Instrumental. Beautiful and upbeat piano rendition of an all-time classic. Even if you don't recognize the name of the song, you'll surely recognize the tune.

"Shine on Harvest Moon" - Instrumental. This song has a soothing big band of the 1940's sound.

"A Pretty Girl Is Like a Melody" - Instrumental rendition with a soft piano lead.

"Scarborough Fair" - Instrumental with a strong and soulful trumpet lead on the melody.

"Avalon" - Instrumental with a tenor saxophone on the lead melody line.

"You Made Me Love You" - Beegie Adair female vocal lead Very strong and soulful sounding voice.

"Midnight in Rio" - Instrumental with a Latin flavor

"They Didn't Believe Me" - Instrumental piano lead

"Room with a View" - Instrumental saxophone solo

"Fascination Waltz" - Instrumental - with a haunting melody a la Paris

"Bill Bailey Won't You Please Come Home" - Instrumental with a clarinet lead for first verse, trumpet lead second verse, guitar for the third verse, trumpet lead in fourth verse, clarinet fifth verse, percussion lead on the bridge, and a trumpet lead on the reprise. Very fun.

"My Melancholy Baby" Beegie Adair female vocal lead

First, I love these samplers! They give you a collection of full songs for a few dollars and are normally a great introduction to several artists. This one is no different, I enjoy jazz and my life would probably be better with more of it lol, but Iamby no means an exexpert, but this is a lovely handful of tracks especially for the money! I would recommend this if you enjoyed sampling it, although, I feel terrible not using any other word besides sample, sorry.

Can't give this a 5 star but a 4. Good Lp for after a long week of work it's good for a quiet Saturday afternoon. Even after working in the yard it was soothing. All the selections seem to cause me to reflect back to the '70s-'80, birth of smooth jazz. A great grab for slowing down the pace of the day. Recommend it!!

Jazz is a pretty broad genre. When I think of jazz, one thing I think of is the dialog between the musicians... the breaks and solos taken by various members of the group... for example, the interplay between the saxes and brass and drums... a lot of improvisation. I don't hear much of this spontaneity and interplay in the Green Hill Jazz Sampler, so to my ear it's "not quite jazz."

Many of the pieces sound more like "dance band" music than "jazz" to me. Some of the pieces might qualify as "smooth jazz" ... that hybrid eunuch of a format that is, nonetheless, often very pleasant listening. Some pieces don't even go that far, IMHO; for example Fascination Waltz (certainly an old musical standard) bears no resemblance to what I think of as jazz. Some (especially the vocals) are "lounge music" to my way of thinking.

Still, some of the arrangements are fairly spirited and jazzy. Bill Bailey, and Alexander's Ragtime Band, are pretty authentic to my ear. No argument there.

All in all, the Sampler is quite listenable, although perhaps more as background music, rather than foreground. It's an interesting mix of the "Jazz" palette. All the arrangements are good, and the playing is meticulous, so it's a very polished collection. I'm glad it's part of my library, and I'll listen to it again in the future.
