    mostly classic and smooth jazz. It's just something to relax to and listen to while I read, do whatever. mostly jazz without words with a real smooth beat is good. If that makes any sense at all.

    Might be considered more "blues" than "jazz," but you might like it anyway. :dunno:

    Would he be considered jazz, though?


    I see his CD in Jazz and Blues sections, and I can hear both elements in his music. Either way, he's really good!
