Fourplay are the masters of smooth jazz and I especially love Bob James , but as the years have gone on and the line up has changed any new album takes a bit of getting used to.This album is no exception.The last few albums have been a bit hit and miss with a mix of great tracks and why bother.Sorry to be harsh but these guys are superb musicians and when they make great albums they have a lot to live up to whenever a new one is released.I know artists evolve and change is key to keeping music fresh and interesting. Fourplay try to do this with varied success I feel, but I am still a fan.This latest album on first hearing it was oh no this is boring , but on repeated listening it grows on you.No criticism of the musicianship just the interest in the music itself takes a bit of getting into.I would love to see these guys live but they rarely come to the UK and tend to play in London only in one off shows, understandably as they are niche musicians who wouldn't fill large arenas or bigger venues.I feel the intimate jazz club like Ronnie Scotts bests suits them and the style of music they play.My wife and daughter think it is elevator music and very bland.Everyone to their own.
If you are a fan then you will probably like it , just give it time to grow on you.

Love Fourplay. Not bought a bad album yet. Sad they lost Chuck last year. Another great guitarist taken from us far to early. Hopefully Threeplay will become Fourplay in 2019.

This is a superb album by Fourplay.

Excellent musicians playing well written tracks. This album takes me back to their earlier work which I love.

A relaxing album that will be on my sound systems at home and in the car for weeks and no doubt months to come.

Buy it! You won't be let down.

That's the real good music. Not everybody can enjoy this as much as I do.
Given the fact that you already know the artist's old work this is like an assurance that it will continue that way.

Another ok Fourplay album. Impeccably played but uninspired tunes. These guys could play this stuff in their sleep. Each album sounds more and more artificial too.
