DEFINITION:

Smooth jazz is a genre of music that grew out of jazz fusion blended with easy listening pop music, featuring a polished pop feel with little to no jazz improvisation.

As a late 20-something who has been through albums and albums of my dad’s smooth jazz (i.e: Kenny G), I can personally say this jazz form needs an update.

Here’s a playlist* in tribute to the cheesiest sax from some of the best ambient jazz emerging from the DIY scene.

*Best when listened to by a fire, during rush hour traffic, or when you are getting pumped 4 a NITE OUT.
