SHM-CD reissue. Comes with a mini-description. Features new remastering if it comes from Parlophone. The gentle genius of guitarist Johnny Smith – perfectly captured in this late nite trio session from the 50s! There's a lot more jazz here than you might guess from the "easy listening" title – and Johnny's working with drummer Charlie Mastropaolo and bassist George Roumanis, in a style that's very much in keeping with his other best Roost work at the time. Smith has this way on the strings that's like few other players of his time – a style of playing the guitar that's so gentle, so spacious, the notes come off the instrument almost by themselves – with a lightly ringing quality that's the best part of the unique Johnny Smith tone.

Jazz / Cool / Guitar / Vibes

SHM-CD reissue. Comes with a mini-description. Features new remastering if it comes from Parlophone. A Johnny Smith album with a real difference, and that difference is vibes – handled her by a young John Rae, whose tones make a perfect accompaniment to Smith's chromatic style of guitar! The balance of vibes and guitar is beautiful – handled with all that sense of space that both Johns could bring to their 50s work – with just a bit of extra help from George Roumanis on bass and John Lee on drums – players who can come in strong when needed, but often lay back and let the chromes take over!

Part of Instinct Records' most successful jazz series, This Is Smooth Jazz, Vol. 2 is packed with great contemporary jazz funk, smooth jazz, Latin, soul, acid jazz, groove, and R&B, and is one of Instinct's most appealing compilations to date. The CD features smooth jazz stars Count Basic, Soundscape UK, Joe Fuentes, Chris Standring, and the award-winning the Jazz Steppers. If you have a thing for great guitarists, check out the fine work of Nigel Wallace on "Kabanos" and Peter Legat on "I'm Loving You." If you prefer vocals, then listen carefully to vocalist Kelli Sae who shines with the excellence that only she can give on one of the best R&B/acid jazz compositions available or to newcomers or Espirito who adds an exciting new dimension to the series. This second collection is an excellent update to This Is Smooth Jazz and by adding these latest and most exciting sounds in contemporary jazz, the highly successful series should broaden its international appeal and impact on the various styles of music compiled for it.
