Soulful Contemporary Groove Jazz with silky & funky tracks offering a touch of the blues guitar, jazz piano and fun percussion.
Smooth is a love affair with smooth jazz, and like musical silk sheets it will sooth your senses with tunes that tame the savage beast and ease the way to love's tender embrace. All 13 songs take you through a sexy romantic interlude from beginning to end.

Smooth has grooves driven by rhythms that will put you and your partner in the zone, whatever and wherever you want that to be.

On the heels of Steve's debut CD, Dry Heat, Smooth continues his funky, fun style. From the tempestuous groove of Did You Get The Message?, the sweet Chocolates & Roses, the sassy Shower For Two, to the bluesy strains
of How Do You Like Your Eggs? "Poppa" has taken smooth jazz in a lively new direction.

Try listening to Smooth between silk sheets with the one you love. Now that's as good as it gets.

Cool Music

I call my music "Americana Funk", a retro salute to the early days when music was created here and not imported from Europe. This music has evolved into what we know today as Rock & Roll, R&B, Country, Jazz, Soul, Folk and Blues. I go back to those beginnings for solos and riffs and wrap it all up in contemporary Jazz for cool modern sounds with a touch of nostalgia to them. I draw on my experience as a drummer and bandleader (1958 - 1972), producer (1970 - 2000), and digital music composer and music arranger (2005 - present). I put everything I know and love into this music and sincerely hope you enjoy the groove. Poppa Steve
