My first contact to Chris Geith and his group was during the golden age of It was that period when thousands of artists were offering their music for a low budget to the interested music world. His sophomore album Prime Time was one of the best selling albums on holding the Nr.1 position in the charts smooth jazz, jazz fusion and contemporary urban/R&B over months. The album was downloaded more than 1,400,000 times.

At the moment members of the Chris Geith Group are Chris Geith (piano, keyboards, programming), Matt Marshak (guitars), Fred Scerbo (saxophone), Mark Mullers (bass), Donny D (drums, percussion), Dean Kosh (drums on Restless Heart) and Al Davis (trumpet, trombone). With the exception of one song all others are composed by Chris Geith, partly in co-work with sax player Fred Scerbo.

The secret of Chris Geith's tremendous success on immediately reveals by listening to Groove Detective. Chris Geith has inhaled the groove with all notes. He has a feeling for seductive melodies and his piano performance shows elegance and ease. The horn background delivered by Scerbo and Davis is tight.

The title tune takes the same line. Geith's piano play is echoed by Scerbo's sax and Marshak's guitar. Geith's piano performance has a breathtaking brilliance. One can compare him without no doubt with masters like Joe Sample or Alex Bugnon.

Waves Of Life is featuring Matt Marshak's awesome guitar lines. That is smooth jazz at its best. Influences of Ken Navarro and Pat Metheny are audible. This song will be the first radio single.

Enjoy a carefree life listening to the swinging Morning Starlight. This is piano music for the best hours of the day.

When Restless Heart sounds familiar to you, that's no wonder. This song was a runner from Chris Geith's cool time at On this album you find a remixed version. Comparisons to The Rippingtons are allowed and justified.

The heartfelt love song Have I Told You Lately? was originally released by Van Morrison on his LP Avalon Sunset (1987), a huge success and certainly the best through-ball for Geith's piano ballade. Zero Gravity picks up the motifs of the first tracks in rhythm and melody.

Nice To Meet You reveals Geith's fantastic talent for smooth and catching songs with a high appeal. Perfectly composed and performed the melody warms up everybody's mind. Slowing down the tempo with I Will Remember You the listener finds nice stuff for contemplation.

Turning back the wheel on Sweet Sensation Chris Geith showcases more of his piano talent. Effortless Chris tinkles the piano keys on the epic Nature Of Instinct sparkled with some synth injections. The up-tempo Every Moment Everyday makes evident that a simple rhythm sometimes overcasts the sound experience of a perfect piano performance.

Luna and So Many Nights are balanced master pieces confirming Geith's leading position in smooth jazz.

Chris Geith's new album embraces a variety of themes and styles. While the first part of his album is hooking and underlines Geith's hit potential, reveals the second part the moderate contemplative piano player. In any case an album which deserves a second spin.
