Smooth jazz album of the year 2009,
This review is from: Vip (MP3 Download)
I first came across Swedish pianist Jonathan Fritzen in 2008 when I discovered his debut album "Love Birds" which had some great tracks and showed lots of promise and potential. Less than 12 months later Jonathan produced his sophomore album "VIP" which is a little funkier and features more up tempo tracks than his debut. The CD has only recently been available through Amazon UK, which is a shame because it probably slipped through the net and was not heard by many smooth jazz fans who I know would love it. When it was first released I had to buy it through Amazon US and it sold out within a couple of days and when it came back into stock it sold out again the same day! There were longer soundbites on his own website but now, just another year later, he has another new album due out called "Diamonds" and the soundbites for that have replaced "VIP." Listen to the new album on Jonathan's website & then buy all 3 of his CD's - you will not be disappointed. I cannot praise this album enough, it is quite simply brilliant and it was my smooth jazz album of the year 2009. Move over Brian Culbertson - there's a new kid on the block.
