Pila Adur - Kaneohe Hawaii

GET THIS CD! You will not be dissappointed!
This CD is nothing short of fantastic! I played this CD and almost didn't want to play the others I ordered from CD-BABY. If you like Paul Taylor you will absolutely love this guy! His sound is very smooth and eloquent and also urban with just the right amount of funk. Songs like "Smooth Jazz Flavor" and "Opportunity" do just that. "Now and Forever" is very well mixed and flows like a honey, sweet and slow... And these are just a few of the tracks. I could write about this CD all day! This is definite driving music to the max baby! This CD blends well here in Hawaii! I have been playing it for all my friends so expect more orders from Hawaii CD-Baby! Quintin: kudos my friend! You have done a wonderful job! Aloha!

On a couple of cuts, Quintin showed signs of near-genius. However, on most, the music was border-line R&B, and had a somewhat stale 70's feel. Not enough Sanborn/Alfonso Blackwell, too much early Earth, Wind, Fire/Barry White. I'd recommend selected cuts, but not the whole CD
