1 stars From one extreme of boredom (gratuitous speed wankery) to another (smooooth-jaaazzzz tedium).

You'd think someone who's been around as long as Al would at least have a little class and some faith in the content of his recordings to not have to resort to using porn-lite covers to sell his albums.

But that's nothing compared to the contents themselves, in this case, it's just pure snooze inducing fusion-lite with Latin percussion tailored for your local Smooth-Jazz station, polite, inoffensive and very strictly color within the lines, ZERO risk-taking at all. Efficient, coldly technical, pushes all the right buttons for some, but nothing of any real interest here.

The Owl | 1/5 |
