Most Helpful Customer Reviews


Somebody really cool that they respect must have gotten to these guys and
said, "Enough already; just play".

A couple of the tracks still sit pretty pat in the contemporary jazz radio
chair ("Let's Make Love" being the most blatant culprit here), but much of
this record is simply too cool and out-of-the-norm to fall inbetween Marion
Meadows and the 13th Sade song that hour on your average radio dial.
There's WAY less vocal action here for once, allowing the band to really
show off why getting together in the first place was such a good idea: all
of these guys are legends in their own right and having them play together
is asking for a great time. They seem to be reaching backwards a little,
with grooves and arrangements that challenge casual listening but keep you
nodding your head with the beat...like Bob James USED to do all of the time
(not Grover Washington-period funky, but definitely in line with his 80s
stuff before it went too soft). "Galaxia" and "Cafre L'amour" have some
serious teeth.

If you miss the Yellowjackets circa 1990, or the local jazz radio station
seems to run the same sax player over a Lisa Stansfield beat one too many
times for your taste anymore, get this record. It's sharp as a tack and I'm
sure will make some long-standing fans turn their heads a little, but will
recover longtime fans of the players who wrote this group off about album
#3 or so.



This is an outstanding CD. Fourplay, too, has been in a creative lull of
recent date, but now, they seem better than ever on this effort. The first
two compositions are almost mesmerizing for their intense "groove" which,
by the way, are fresh compositions. I'll go further and say that these two
compositions better anything that they have ever done. While I have not
heard critically the entire CD due to my continuous playing of the first
two, I must say that the playing on this CD is quite spirited; as if
someone told them to let go and be free. Of special note is the recording
quality. Its reference quality, no doubt. The instruments all sound so
musical with not a hint of digital edginess. I particularly like the way
the drums sound. They are real drums and not that synthersized drum machine
sound so many artist use to save money. If you gather from the "house"
review that this CD is better than anything Fourplay has done, then I must
say, the reviewer may very well be right. Its certainly the best smooth
jazz CD I've heard in years with the first two going down as instant
"jammin" classics. All I can say is "what a show!"



I think the even the devoted jazz fan should be forgiven if he confuses
HEARTFELT with a more recent Bob James solo CD or even (at times) a Larry
Carlton project. Most of us hardly think this is a bad thing. Both James
and Carlton have such distinctive voices that that it is not surprising
their presence can overwhelm any standard quartet arrangement. In the
particular case of this CD, I challenge anyone to play HEARTFELT next to
James' MORNING NOON & NIGHT and tell which is which in a blindfold test.
Unless you can detect Carlton's playing in the mix, you can't.

To a large degree, this is like the similarity between a Tom Petty and The
Heartbreakers CD and a Tom Petty solo project. Aside from the shuffle of
backup players, we're talking pretty much about the same thing. This
dominance of one player is constantly contradicted by the obvious
camaraderie among the members of Fourplay. With Carlton replacing Lee
Ritenour a couple of albums and several tours ago, it is safe to say he is
fully integrated with the group. Perhaps this accounts for the amplified
"fire" in the playing for HEARTFELT. But for my money this is still Bob
James band.

All that having been said, Fourplay are (without much fanfare) moving away
from the glossy "smooth jazz" sound that found its commercial market way
back in the 1980's. That formula paid a lot of bills and sustained a
boatload of careers; but there is a huge "been there done that" albatross
hanging around the format. Listeners who have been with the format from the
beginning are moving on. The musicians themselves are either retiring or
itching to go to a new level. Better than most, Fourplay are well respected
enough within and outside the "soft jazz" design that they can stretch
themselves. It also doesn't hurt they have a solid and loyal fan base.

The first four pieces kick off the CD with promising assured confidence and
inventiveness. "Galaxia" is a little mysterious while "That's The Time" is
quietly busy and hinting at something sneaky. "Break It Out" And "Rollin'"
both hit their own funky grooves and ride them out. Unfortunately, "Let's
Make Love" with Babyface disrupts the flow. Like most other reviewers, I
consider "Let's Make Love" is out of place here. Perhaps, the members of
Fourplay thought they just couldn't totally break free of the old format
altogether; but even so it is pretty much a below average song for
Babyface.

"Heartfelt" returns to form and is more meditative and reflective than any
of the previous cuts. The general tone of the piece reveals it is a
remembrance rather than a present tense avowal of sentiment. "Tally Ho" is
one of the strongest cuts on the album-just behind "Galaxia" overall. In
contrast to the rest of HEARTFELT, "Tally Ho" is an openly joyful number
one imagines an uncomplicated pleasure in driving home from a good day at
work. "Cafe L'Amour" affects a slow, smoldering undercurrent of one casting
his/her romantic enchantment on another. "Ju Ju" meanders and threatens
like a witch doctor wordlessly passing by. "Going Back Home" is a
semi-vocal number that is surprisingly sinister. "Karma" is playful in an
understated way and ""Making Up" is a slow, romantic, longing closer to one
of Fourplay's better efforts.

Some speculate that Fourplay's freedom from their old record company has
allowed them to be more daring with a wider range of moods. I don't know
about that. What is certain is that the usual suspects will still be
dissatisfied that Fourplay has not moved even farther than they have.
Equally certain is that the loyalty of Fourplay's fans is amply rewarded
here.
