Smith, Nate
Genre: General
Review: kind of like a cross between Stevie Wonder & Weather Report. There are jazz elements to some of the tunes. There seems to be a theme to the album, but it is unclear what. That said, the tunes are all played well. Arranged by the percussionist, a variety of musicians participate.
If You Like: Stevie Wonder, Weather Report, Marvin Gaye
FCCs: possible on 4 & 12
