ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
funkysmooth is just what the name implies; music that can be both soothing in a background or ambient mode, but vibrant and rewarding when given an active listen. This is no repetitive "four-bar drum machine pattern and endless solo" type of record that many associate with "smooth jazz," yet neither is it full of incendiary be-bop craziness or arrangements of tired old standards. It is fresh, sophisticated, and hip, yet never pretentious or obscure.

Michael Allen Whipple is a multi-instrumentalist/producer living in Portland, Oregon, by way of Southern California. He also records impresionistic electronic nujazz under the nom-de-sequencer of Bodhisattva Jones (available on CDBaby). In addition, he is also a founding member of the world/acoustic band Chasm, (also available on CDBaby), and a lifetime Los Angeles Lakers fan, through good years and bad. He plays all members of the flute family, keyboards, congas and percussion, both acoustic and electronic, and has been working in the world of computer-assisted recording since the dawn of MIDI.

Fresh & Memorable
I like this CD! It has great movement in theme so it doesn't all sound the same. It has great grooves covering funk, latin, straight ahead, etc. This is a quality production highlighting memorable melodies as well as forging instrumental solos that compliment the song. This CD has purpose and is not self indulgent. "Funky Smooth" fits many situations: entertaining guests, eating dinner, romancing, office, cleaning the house or just grooving in front of the stereo. A must for contemporary/smooth jazz fans. Looking forward to this artist's next project.

Funk and Smooth Undercurrent!
The tempo and mood of these songs flow with a funk and smooth undercurrent that sends me in the most relaxing way. There is a distinct sound to all this that I have never heard before in smooth jazz that I can only describe as unique but familiar. Michael Allen Whipple has a real gift of blending opposite vibes and making them sound, well… funkysmooth!
