★Review
Chris Geith 是一位来自美国的键盘手、作曲家、音乐制作人。他的音乐经常可以在一些电台和电视节目、广告中听到。从他的最新专辑《Timeless World》中作为单独发行的单曲Waves Of Life 被Smooth Jazz radio 评为08年一月份排行榜第一名。

这张专辑里的曲子主旋律多为钢琴,时常也有萨克斯和吉他唱主角,与Bob James 那种冷静的风格不同,Chris 的曲子旋律感极为突出,始终给人以轻松愉快的感觉,有对大自然风景的热情描绘,还有对缤纷生活的细腻感受,喜欢Smooth Jazz 和Fusion 的朋友千万不要错过这张精彩纷呈的好专辑。

An early key element to the future smooth jazz success of saxophonist Euge Groove was his massive success on the MP3.com website, which even before Myspace allowed unknowns to gain a following via digital downloads. Pianist, keyboardist, and composer Chris Geith emerged in the later 2000s with a similar story, having earned write-ups in the New York Times by being one of the most streamed/downloaded instrumental artists in MP3 history, with over 1.4 million hits. His first album, Prime Time, sold in 23 countries, and his Myspace page in 2007 racked up over 20,000 listens for Timeless World’s first radio single “Waves of Life” and the buoyant opening track “Groove Detective.” As compelling a track as it is, what’s curious about the success of “Waves of Life” is that it’s like no other tune on the album. The Manhattan School of Music grad’s bread and butter is the hip and rhythmic, coolly soulful melodic piano magic that livens up the smoothie airwaves, very much in the infectious spirit of Gregg Karukas and Brian Simpson. It’s light and fluffy and on the surface but with a deeper jazz and soul sensibility underneath. “Groove Detective,” the title track, and “Zero Gravity” are instantly likeable reflections of this popular style. So it was no doubt a calculated risk to go with the moody, locomotive, Pat Metheny-sque “Waves of Life” as the first single — it’s energetic but atmospheric, melodic yet moody, and features more lead parts by well known indie jazz guitarist Matt Marshak (also the founder of Nuance Music Group) than any other track. Geith enters the song a few minutes in with some dazzling solo spots, but the song is mostly about Marshak and the vibe. This track definitely shows a deeper artistry than many of the others, but those who expect the rest of the disc to have its edge will be greeted instead with a sweetness more typical of most smooth jazz play lists. For overall listening enjoyment — which is of course what the genre is all about — however, this ranks as one of the finest indie discs of 2007.
