Tons of percussion...tons of energy...tons of soul...that's what you're gonna he
Tons of percussion...tons of energy...tons of soul...that's what you're gonna hear in the fourth release from one of the most talented contemporary jazz bands around...the Connecticut-based group, Airborne. Their musical recipe, in their own words, "takes a can of straight ahead jazz with Caribbean and Latino influences, pours in a few tablespoons of jazz fusion and a heaping cup of urban street funk; then cooks all ingredients with pure technical talent till it gets boiling hot." Precisely! You can definitely hear and feel the positive vibes on HEAVY VIBES...on every song...in every performance. This is really a cookin' album! This band has been around since the late 80's, and has performed extensively worldwide. They've made numerous television appearances, and are heavily involved in musical education as members of the New England Foundation for the Arts' prestigious Performing Arts Roster. They're obviously a powerfully positive force for jazz, and you can't miss the quality and energy on this project. From the intoxicating Latin percussion that kicks off track 1 ("I See") right on through each and every tune on HEAVY VIBES, you'll find yourself totally engaged in the Airborne experience. My personal faves on this disc are "Turn Me Around," which reminds me a lot of Spyro Gyra; the soulful vocal duet, "To Be Loved"; and "A Smooth Ride" (The title says it all!). Get yourself a copy of HEAVY VIBES, and you can forget spending money on chemical mood elevators! ~Scott O'Brien

Excellent musicianship on the whole album!
I recently wrote an article about Smooth Jazz for the German version of the independent encyclopedia Wikipedia. The group Airborne describes their music as "Smooth Jazz & Vocals/Contemporary Jazz". After listening to their music I can state, there is some Jazz. A member of the San Diego-based band Fattburger once joked in an interview that these days anything without words is called Jazz, unless it doesn't have drums -- then it's New Age. So let's stop this endeavor to describe Smooth Jazz at this point.

Nevertheless Airborne has a hooking potential. Founded in the 80's the group has survived the ups and downs of music business. Today they present an album which let me sit up and take notice. Yes, they are really professionals.
