Review

Silky...Vibrant ...Catchy...Thoughtful...Greg Chambers self-titled album delivers fresh jazz-pop (á la Dave Koz or Michael Lington) mixed with lush ballads and sophisticated and sexy jazz-techno. Straddling acoustic and electronic soundscapes, Greg Chambers balances memorable melodic material and creative song construction with invigorating. heartfelt playing. Showing maturity and poise, this album is not to be missed! --Smooth Jazz News- DISCover New Music

Back in 2007, I described City Lights by sax man Greg Chambers as an album different enough to get him noticed. It was a rarified blend of the classical with the contemporary and now he is back with another innovative (and this time self titled) offering. In fact Chambers is far from being your regulation smooth jazz musician. With a resume that includes a parallel project with his own jazz quartet and work with the Aspen Festival Orchestra he is well placed to push the musical envelope. Indeed, with six of his own compositions, plus covers of Richard Elliot's Sweet Dream and the Keane hit Try Again, this is exactly what he has done.

His sensitive handling of the stunningly beautiful Try Again is really quite special while Ocean View (which incidentally is the first single to be serviced to radio) makes an early nod to classical undertones before luxuriating in a rock steady beat that still affords Chambers adequate room to experiment. Elsewhere the paradox that is Greg Chambers is further compounded the compelling techno vibe of the feisty Sapphire which sits in magical contrast to Elliot's Sweet Dream that Chambers uses to tenderly tug at the heartstrings.

Interlude builds a mellow yet totally absorbing bridge to Street Noise which for a player who does not routinely do funk comes pretty close. However, in doing so, the tune never looses the essence what Chambers playing is really all about and, although Here With You proves to be a mellifluous charmer, he closes out this fine collection with Studio 8 where a thumping bass line and engagingly quirky production will live long in the memory. --Denis Poole- Smooth Jazz Therapy

Format: Audio CD
Greg Chambers brings all of the elements of style and grace that belong to a top notch sax player to this latest release.

I love the smooth vibe of Sweet Dream and the venture into a blend of raw jazz and a techno beat.

Definitely a must addition to any music collection

What an amazing sax player and composer Greg Chambers is. His original compositions and technique reach out to young and old jazz enthusiasts. Listening to his music makes you want to stop what you are doing, just to absorb it all.
