Re: Smooth Jazz
As Duke Ellington once said, "There's only two types of music...good, and bad."
Although I'm a straight-ahead jazz player, I have taken the time to listen and appreciate smooth jazz. One of the biggest mistakes players make is they listen only to the styles that they play and ignore the rest, but you can learn a lot by listening to other genres. Tranesyadaddy has got the right idea by listening to Chu Berry.
