Well Worth The Wait

March 2 finally got here and I downloaded this album shortly after midnight.

This is the first I have EVER downloaded a full album from iTunes since I am a religious cherry picker to stretch my music dollar, feed my habit and avoid tunes I'll never listen to. No cherry picking here. This album is that good!!!
Chris' addition of strings and cinamatic touches with many haunting emotions are outstanding! "Contemplation", "Fast Train To Everywhere", "Bossa Blue", "At The End Of The Day" and "Hole In My Shoe" are immediate jewels in my book.
As I've read, this will definitely be one of the most talked about jazz releases of 2010 and clearly in first place for Jazz Album Of The Year at this early juncture. ENJOY!!!!

Whoa, this is different.

Chris Standring is taking smooth jazz where smooth jazz has never gone before. He has definately stepped away from the well established formulas on this album, venturing into fresh, new, creative and expressive territory. The result is a great album with a lot of wow factor. More smooth jazz musicians need to step out of the box and try new things. Be free and come up with something truly special. I don't buy whole albums on iTunes very often, but I bought this one. The bottom line is, this is quality music that isn't watered down. Great job Chris and crew!

First, I want to thank you, Mr. Standring, for bringing such aural joy into my life! And you even gave us an 8-minute masterpiece in "Overture" which improves my Los Angeles drive times more than you can imagine. While I thought "Love and Paragraphs" was greatness, and I still play the heck out of it, this new cd is a crowning achievement. The album is beginning to play like one long song; that's how many times I've already listened to it! I hope you never stop making music, Chris.
