Scott Wilkie: More Than You Know
Wilkie has a reasonable music resume. Born in Detroit (which produced several outstanding jazz icons), he studied classical music. But then in high school he discovered the "joys" of electronic music and hasn't turned away since. On this album, he is joined by other members of the smooth jazz fraternity like Eric Marienthal and Lenny Castro. If smooth/fusion/contemporary/new age, whatever, is your bag, you will like this one. As for me, "sixth floor, please". Visit Scott at his web page, www.scottwilkie.com.
