this is one i haven't listened to in a very long time. i had developed an aversion to 'contemorary and/or smooth jazz' it used to be that there was jazz that was smooth and then later, the more commercialized SMOOTH JAZZ which coincided with new age, sometimes played on the same station. i got to really like dave sanborn on the earlier michael franks albums. michael always had great personnel lists on his records and even though he was smooth, it didn't REALLY fit in with smooth jazz. for a while, he played along with that trend because it was selling big time. he broke away somewhat and moved back east and sold on his own label, still with good jazz roots. for a long time, the only dave sanborn album i liked was-another hand-on which he played REAL jazz and they were always in the cheap cd bins because people got them home and it didn't sound like 'dave sanborn' who the record companies told to 'play like dave sanborn'. that meant to play the new songs exactly like the ones before and after it. a whole bunch of them were all doing it, larry carlton, lee ritenhour, bob james, and others were all cashing in on the TREND. well, one from the heart came from the era just before SMOOTH JAZZ, and you can hear it in the innovative ways it is played and CHECK OUT the personnel list! chock full of great musicians including dr john, mino cinelu, marcus miller, paulhino de ccosta, and many others. it was enjoyable to flash back to when the jazz that was smooth was still prominent. this was on LP so i can't say anything about the cd sound, just the music. enjoy.
