Konstantin – Let’s Get It On

Naturally gifted with outstanding melodic approach, Konstantin can express his abilities in easy to remember tunes. Not without reason his albums Downtown ( 2004), Led By You (2006), Smoothing (2009) are called the treasure of Contemporary Jazz and the “feeling good music”.  Catchy melodies, clean performance, and bright energy – those are the main features of Konstantin’s music.  Read more about the artist here.

Living up to the title track, the urbane artist created a dreamy, easily funky world of in-the-pocket gems – nothing too innovative, or edgy, but infectious, joyful, and likable nonetheless. While Konstantin’s playing is solid and his melodies pretty irresistible, his gift for horn texturing and love of ambient touches on all tracks. That all is making Let’s Get It On an intriguing listening experience beyond the seduction promised by the album’s title.

The 4th Konstantin’s solo release contains as always fresh, tasty, and good-felling-music. This quality CD is without exaggeration one of the best of the Smooth Jazz format and now available at CDBaby.
