Rhythm Logic: Rhythm Logic


Sign in to view read count

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 are originals, the remaining two are well-known covers:  Earth, Wind & Fire's "Fantasy" and Donald Fagen's "I.G.Y." (from his solo albumNightfly). 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)
