Another Sunday coming down and the year is racing ahead! Whatever is happening in your life, I hope you’ll join me in this respite and enjoy the cool and smooth jazz vocals of Dianne Reeves. Have an awesome week ahead y’all.❤️ ❤️ ❤️ ❤️
Happy Sunday coming down to all of you and as usual, I wish you all an awesome week ahead. Well if you didn’t know it before, you must know that I am a sucker for the saxophone and, Kirk Whalum featured here, is one of my favourite saxophonists. I hope you enjoy the battle of the multigenerational performance of Fit to Battle as much as I did. He is accompanied by his uncle, “Peanuts” and his son, “Kyle”. Here’s a musician who I think deserves a special tribute after many years of making good music and playing with some other well renowned artists featured in collaborations here. I have include two versions of I will always love you. Each are hauntingly beautiful and I couldn’t help but include the version with the violin in the last clip. Look out for another great jazz vocalist next week and other instruments I’ll be profiling. All the Best! Chevvy.

Hope you’ll be having a great Sunday as the sun comes down on you. I also hope that you’ll enjoy today’s selection of music to accompany your winding down for the weekend. This is my third week into paying tribute to some of my favourite musicians chosen from a combination of R&B and Smooth Jazz and preferably, live performances where I can find them. There’s just something about feeling like you are right there with the audience, hearing the sound of each instrument or the warm embrace of the voice of the vocalist.Too often we celebrate artists when they are gone. As far as possible, this season of Sunday coming down pays tribute to artists who have paid their dues over 20 or more years and may still be performing. That staying power, in mind, is at the heart of real talent. My choice today is Lalah Hathaway, daughter of the late, great Donny Hathaway. Join me in my Studio and be mesmerised by Lalah’s sultry voice and her collaborations with other great performers. Here’s a toast to a great Sunday coming down and a wonderful week ahead! ❤️ ❤️ ❤️
Mist obscures the view
But Faith restores my vision
To shape something new
I hope you are all having a great Sunday. As Sunday comes down here in the South, still in the midst of Winter, join me in winding down to the sounds of Dave Koz. The saxophone is one of my favourite instruments. I’m paying Tribute today to Dave Koz who has achieved recognition as a great saxophonist in the smooth jazz industry over more than 25 years. Enjoy this feast of smooth jazz with some of Dave’s great songs and collaborations with other noteworthy musicians. Here’s wishing you all a great week ahead!!💓
In the winds of change
Stand your ground and look forward
To the flush of dawn
Dear Friends, Today’s Sunday Coming down begins a new season of featuring and celebrating musicians who in my view belong in the Hall of Fame. These are stars worthy of special tribute for the contribution they have made to the world of R&B and/or Smooth Jazz over many years and will include collaborations that they have done with other artists. Most will be well known names but a few will be my personal favourites that might be less well known but still worthy of recognition. So, as Sunday comes down for you, I hope that you will sit back and wind down or up to the sounds of Aretha Franklin as you prepare for what I hope will be a fabulous week ahead!🎈🎈✨✨💥💥💫 💫🎈🎈
I end with my favourite “pick me up” song : Wonderful!
