Smooth Jazz

misha mulov abbadoHello and welcome to a day of relaxing contemporary music from the smooth end of the jazz spectrum, with somewhat of a bias towards keyboards. If your week has been a bit hectic, then kick back and enjoy some smooth jazz moods. This time we are premiering New Ansonia, the virtuosic new album by Misha Mulov-Abbado (son of the late Claudio). Listen out for it!

Smooth doesn’t mean slow necessarily: there are some tracks that kick up the tempo a bit to help you through the day. Almost exclusively instrumental, so if you need to focus, read, write, study, build… there are few lyrics to intrude.

Artists include Suzanne Ciani, David Benoit, Tom Grant, Exchange, Jim Chappell, Billy Barber, Ian Lynn, Acoustic Alchemy and many more.

Today’s programme is presented by Elrik Merlin. If you are in the United States or Canada, please click here to launch the Stream Licensing player. To listen from outside North America, click here to start your player .
