Dave Valentin: Sunshower
Valentin’s latest album crosses a variety of styles, from the modern mainstream spark of "Space Cadet" to the smooth jazz melodies of "Reunion" and "Sunshower," the funk groove of "Embers" and "Porkchops," and the Latin dance of "Bandit" and "Subway Six," both of which exude a Disney appeal. Valentin’s bias for accessible melody over rhythmic variety and improvisation insure that his appeal will remain commercially successful. Fortunately, he’s added a pinch of salsa to the mix, so that his audience will extend beyond smooth jazz radio airwave boundaries.
