Ed Calle: Sunset Harbor

By Published: May 1, 1999
Lovers of Kenny G. and smooth jazz may find Sunset Harbor to be a nice place to visit—I did not. Although tenor saxophonist Ed Calle has worked with some recognizable talents over the years, Gloria Estefan, Bob James, Julio Iglesias, etc., I find nothing distinctive or original in his playing or his compositions. This is standard Latin-influenced, feel-good fare, sweetened by this genres ubiquitous vocal choir and heavy doses of layered synths. Sorry Ed, but I won't be docking at this port again anytime soon.
