Today’s Sunday coming down is a special tribute to the sizzling sounds of Keiko Matsui, a keyboardist who has been making great music for over 30 years. A special recognition goes to the late Carl Anderson whom she featured in songs like “Drop of Water” and “She prays to the wind”. Enjoy and have an awesome week ahead! ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ ❤️

It’s time for that Sundowner here in the South and you are welcome to save listening for later if you’re in a different timezone. Whether you’re enjoying the early blossoms of Spring as we are or the first blushes of Autumn, I hope you’ll enjoy today’s tribute all the same. Apart from Whitney Houston, I’ve tried to pay tribute to musicians who are still alive and have contributed to the music industry for twenty years or more. Join me today in celebrating the smooth jazz of Boney James and I hope he’ll make your day as he did mine. Have a fantastic week ahead! 🎈 💫 ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ 💫 🎈

 

It’s a cool Sunday evening here though Spring is in the air. It’s also just the kind of weather to sit back and relax and listen to the smooth sexy tones of Will Downing. As usual, the saxophone is never far away so enjoy the great accompaniment of  Gerald Albright on Sax and I hope you are romanced as much as I was by the beautiful rendition of “Nothing has ever felt this way”. Have an awesome week ahead y’all!! ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ ❤️

For those who join me for Sunday Coming down, I apologise for not being able to post last week. It’s 6.30 p.m down South and time for that Sundowner . You will know how partial I am to the saxophone and it’s always in the mix no matter the other instruments. But I do also have a special place in my heart for a few guitarists. Someone whose music I’ve collected over the years and would like to pay special tribute to today, is a guitarist from the U.K. who has been making good music for over 20 years. Groove on or sit back and relax to my favorites from the great Peter White and his collaborations with other great musicians. Of course, I hope this great music ushers in a brilliant week for all of you!! ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ ❤️

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! ❤️ ❤️ ❤️

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!!💓

 

It’s Sunday coming down again for me right now with curtains of darkness falling around me rapidly. When it comes around to you, I hope you’ll relax to this last season of Sunday coming down in terms of my selection criteria. I’ve now come to the end of the alphabet, combining the letters, X, Y and Z. There wasn’t too much to choose from but the good thing is that I found music I don’t normally listen to. I hope for example, that you’ll enjoy the stunning performances of Yanni and his band of musicians with its feast of instruments and high energy. Next week, Sunday coming down will begin a feature on individual artists including duets or collaborations that they have done as sought after musicians. Once again my primary focus will be R&B and smooth jazz. To all the Dads in the house, enjoy the rest of Father’s day and to all of you – have a great week ahead!
