Album Notes
Louisiana Smooth Jazz is a sound I coined as Smooth Jazz with an edge. I hope this CD will give you the relaxing escape to groove on while at the same time building a mood of tempos with just the right beat and chord structures and a Sax tone that can almost peel the paint off the walls. I give all the credit to God for giving me the talent to perform my music and to my parents who provided the tools and education to do this and to my wife for her devotion to my music.

I lived in New Orleans
I lived in New Orleans for a couple of years, so I'm all about the Louisiana thing. I like Smooth Juking a lot, and think it will sound great on SMOOTHJAZZ.COM !

Sharon Guillory

Best Sax CD
Over the years I have enjoyed Dave live many, many times. I always thought he was a top of the line sax man, but even so I didn't expect I would love this CD like I do. I've been playing it practically non-stop. Everyone needs this CD.

This is real Louisiana Smooth Jazz
I have heard smooth Jazz from all the top artist however I have never heard such a great sound and feeling like on this Cd. Being from Louisiana and close to New Orleans I know something when I hear it and this has a new twist and groove to it. :-)

Joey Gretna Louisiana

Great Sax tone
Great saxophone tone
The whole Cd is a must to listen to. Each song leads you to a new mood and feeling that just comes across so well.

A Tour de force
by Kimmy Sophia Brown Nov 14, 2013
Dave Duplissey has created a tour de force Smooth Jazz album, with the release of Wine and Roses. The ten instrumental compositions, mostly co-written with Larry Turner, constitute a smoky, calming, and gorgeous listen for fans of this genre.
Dave is superlative on the saxophone, coaxing all kinds of moods and tones from it. Accompanying Dave is Larry Turner on keyboards and key bass, Bobby Henderson on guitar, and Bryan Brignac on drums and percussion. The musicians play off each other with skill and intuition, and they succeed in creating a relaxing and fluid atmosphere. This kind of jazz is very mellow, no shrieking atonal frenzies, no discordancy.
On the song, “La Rochelle”, I was reminded of the rhythms and chords similar to the style used by Steely Dan, and some of the Doobie Brothers/Michael McDonald compositions.
“The Rooster” aptly conveys the attitude of a cocky bird with humor and bounce.
“In the Groove” struts along with the R&B feel of a James Brown tune.
“Twelve O Eight am” plays as if Johnny Mathis was a saxophone.
They do a particularly pretty cover of the Jordy Turner and Turiva Henderson tune, “I Cry Out.”
Smooth Jazz enthusiasts and fans of artists such as Brian Bolen and Kenny G. will want to add Dave and his band to their collection.

Veteran sax man Dave Duplissey calls the sound of his eleventh album “Louisiana Smooth Jazz,” and having gigged with John Fred and gotten one of his instrumentals on The Weather Channel, he’s certainly qualified to give that kind of genre-bending a shot. Turns out there is indeed something in this sideman’s tone that transcends the limits of smooth jazz: even at his most facile, he’s more Red Tyler than Kenny G, although he usually splits the difference and winds up somewhere in disco-era New York.

Not that there’s any disco here. These are very respectable and stylish workouts all, refreshingly analog sounding and comfortable, enough so that Duplissey can afford to soar with real soul in the middle of “The Rooster” or threaten to explode out of his cushy surroundings entirely near the climax of “Take It Uptown.” That never happens, of course, even when the boys in the band threaten to turn into Tower of Power for a few thrilling seconds at the opening of “In the Groove” or “La Rochelle.” But this kind of music is all about seeing what you can get away with inside rigid structures anyway. Come to think of it, Dave sums up the ethos of this record even better with the title of track 2: “Smooth Jukin’.” Almost a paradox, but not. Score one for professionalism.
