This combination will not only improve your AAJ experience, it will allow us to continue to rigorously build on the great work we first started in 1995. Read on to view our project ideas...

Rhythm Logic: Rhythm Logic

Rhythm Logic is a rather typical guitar-keyboards-bass-drums contemporary ensemble, presenting a likable, if not remarkable, program of adult contemporary fare. Eight of the ten tunes on their self-titled debut are originals, the remaining two are well-known covers: Earth, Wind & Fire's "Fantasy" and Donald Fagen's "I.G.Y." (from his solo album Nightfly). The covers were included, I suppose, with the hope of securing some airplay on the smooth jazz playlists. They're very close to the originals. The originals, likewise, are competently done and listenable. However, there's little to give this band a unique sound or distinguish it from the rest of the pack, except possibly for the fact that the drums and percussion are all played by humans. (Zebra ZD 44018)

Tracks:Tuesdays Love; I.G.Y.; Logically Speaking; Full Speed; Fantasy; You Know I Will; Take Me Away!; A Portrait of Passion; Beverley; The First Time. (48:10)
