Smooth Jazz News Review

by Jonathan Widran...



Of course it is more tempting for sax lovers to stuff their stockings with the best selling Kenny G, Dave Koz or Boney James CDs, but this smaller indie release by one of smooth jazz's most durable saxmen is a spirited delight on par with those.

Vail and his right hand man, Rob Mullins, vary the mood nicely, from the frantic, classically tinged soprano-driven opening track Deck The Halls (complete with an explosive synth orchestra) to the gentle, reflective What Child Is This.

God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen and Joy To The World balance tender soprano melodies with seductive light funk grooves. Vail adds a sweet wistfulness to Silent Night by choosing to go with flute. He opens O Holy Night with an ominous atmosphere featuring a distant alto flute intro before easing into the main, soft rhythmic tune on soprano.

On the cover of the disc, Vail's featuring Rob Mullins credit seems to give the keyboardist an almost equal billing; the tandem is in perfect synch on the simply arranged, gorgeous piano-soprano duet of Hark the Herald Angels Sing.

Mullins adds some exotic chimes and percussion textures to a dreamy rendition of We Three Kings.

The variety will more than hold the listener's interest even as we wonder why he's wearing sunglasses on a project celebrating songs usually associated with cold and snow.

This CD is available through Vail's website at www.gregvail.com.




Greg Vail - Christmas The Hymns
Review by SmoothJazz.com

For those who truly appreciate the spirit of Christmas, saxman Greg Vail has something to stuff in your stocking. CHRISTMAS - THE HYMNS, is destined to become your favorite holiday CD.

This moving album employs a traditional sensibility while remaining smooth. Smooth indeed, but mind you, this is not just another Smooth Jazz Christmas album.

You will love the jazzy versions of "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen", "Joy To The World", and "We Three Kings", you will also find lovely hymns and pure traditional tunes.

Greg's holiday album features his long time friend and collaborator, keyboardist Rob Mullins. The two have created a new classic.

This is the one for wrapping the presents, drinking the cocoa and decorating the tree. Pick up a copy for yourself and your friends and family.
