  • Paul Hardcastle's Jazzmasters series reaches its sixth installment with this cool, rhythmic, jazzy collection, which is similar to its five predecessors. The album cover shows a sun setting over water, and that's a good indication that the music is intended to serve as the background to a tropic vacation, or perhaps to a depiction of a tropic vacation on a TV channel devoted to travel programs. Beki Biggins occasionally contributes romantic or philosophical lyrics and sings them in a calm, emotionally disconnected voice reminiscent of Sade. Sometimes a flute or saxophone, courtesy of Chris "Snake" Davis or Rock Hendrix, plays a flowing lead line. But always, the steady percussion track rolls along through each selection for three to five minutes before the music fades out (it has to, since there is no development), to be replaced by another, equally undemanding one. Hardcastle makes a vocal appearance at the end in the form of an interview with a smooth jazz DJ during a replay of "One Chance," and he repeats Biggins' carpe diem notion from her lyrics. Here today, gone tomorrow, is the conclusion, and the Jazzmasters albums seem intended to embody that idea. While they play, they work as ear candy; when they're over, they're quickly forgotten. ~ William Ruhlmann
Professional Reviews
JazzTimes (p.75) - "The instrumentals include the radio-friendly 'Touch and Go,' the chilled-out 'In the Key of Time' and the gentle 'Cloud Watching.'"
