Smooth Chill

2006-01-02

Techno-jazz from Britain, Japan, Germany, New Zealand and Canada. A typical pattern here is basic rhythm track layered-over with ambient vocals (see #2, #3, #4, #7, #8, #9, #10). From what I could tell, only the vocals on “Falling” (#7) and “Crazy Moon” (#9) are constructed in a way that really has lyrics as opposed to vocal sounds and “Falling” is more a jazzy r-and-b number than smooth jazz. “Autumn Leaves” (#2) samples a couple of lines from that jazz standard. - MJVD
