Listening to the newest release from Norman Johnson ‘Get it While You Can,’ a new genre would properly classify this collection. For consideration, adding the genre ‘soothe-smooth jazz’ for any collection that transcends beyond and elevates above the capacity of smooth jazz. This genre will only be designated to collections that effectively evaporate all the worries of the day while soothing frayed nerves with smooth peaceful thoughts of tranquility; thus the term ‘Soothe-smooth jazz,’ or perhaps simply ‘soothe jazz.’
Some clever interpretations to well –known songs from Earth Wind and Fire ‘That’s the Way of the World,’ and ‘Got to Get You into My Life,’ as well as, Aretha Franklin ‘Until You Come Back to Me,’ provide fun new versions to these familiar songs. A few Latin songs anchor this collection and provide a well-rounded cornucopia of musical selections. Pay particular attention to song ‘Nagoya Nights.’ This song epitomizes the concept of ‘soothe jazz.’
Enjoy the song, ‘Get it While You Can’ on many great jazz stations including NewporterJazz. Norman Johnson’s collection, “Get It While You Can’ is the ideal collection to begin one’s 2013 library of great music. For those that categorize their collections by genre, make some extra space for the ‘soothe-jazz’ genre and place Norman Johnson’s collection in its appropriate category.
