5.0 out of 5 stars Glittering, Glamourous, Great. A Gem 8 Jan 2012
Format:Audio CD
I've been searching for this type of music for years but it's practically impossible to define and, therefore, get hold of. As well as being simple jazz, the style is so many other things all at once: relaxed, bluesy, moody, sultry, sophisticated, elegant, emotionally charged and so very grown up, both retro and cutting-edge supercool at the exact same time.

It's the kind of music that you would expect to hear in any number of classic black-and-white movies from the 1920s/30s/40s. You know how it goes: the main character is drowning his sorrows at three o'clock in the morning in the lounge-style bar of some hotel when a gorgeous 'dame' walks in, dressed to kill, and says, 'You got a light?'. Flirty, even dangerous dialogue charges between them and THIS music is playing in the background the whole time. Every time I play the sax CD in particular, I half expect a gruff voice to appear from nowhere that says ''She was the kinda broad that every man dreams about. Only one problem: she was Johnny's girl (pronounced 'jan-eez goyl', if you please!) and even lookin' at her in the wrong way could get you a bullet in your head''.

I'm sure you get the idea. There are four CDs in total, each one specializing in a different theme: sax, singing, muted trumpet and piano. All of them are easy, smooth, mellow. The only CD to have voices of any kind is the singing one; the other three are all instrumental. And, all in, there's something like a blissful four hours of music, each CD being around an hour or so. I'm no expert, but the quality seems perfect to me; I haven't heard even a single hiss. (Update: Okay, I have heard the slightest hiss on ONE of the tracks.)

Everybody who hears even a snippet of this music says, 'Oh, that's really nice, I like that.

5.0 out of 5 stars The other half of a great collection.... 12 Dec 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Of course, I meant to advise you to get the Simply Dinner Jazz collection as well, because these two make up the best value I've seen and used lately. This collection also includes an album of vocals in the right format, too, that is Disc two. The rest is great listening---planning a seduction? This music could be a key ingredient...buy it before it's too late!

4.0 out of 5 stars Smooth Jazz CDs 18 May 2009
Format:Audio CD
4 CDs that give you a very laid back jazz music. The first one is Sax, Moonlight Serenade (a mixture with songs, reminding you of black&white movies), Trumpet and a Piano. Good for a late night background music. Very relaxing, you can either work, read or eat to it or may be have a snooze..:) Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars My biggest problem is staying awake 9 July 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
That's not an insult. It is a compliment!
Smooth and relaxing themes and arrangements for mellow moods. Even if you thought you didn't like jazz.
Amazingly I had none in my collection then we went to a new restaurant with music like this in the background. Once upon a time, if you asked, places like this would show you the CD. This time they just pointed at a device [ipod maybe?]
So, I took a chance after browsing the amazon site.
Maybe true aficionados will think of this as bubblegum jazz.
To me it is just sweet, sweet music at a bargain price.
