Konstantin Klashtorni – Smooth Jazz III

Multi-instrumentalist Konstantin Klashtorni is certainly the most productive artist of the smooth jazz genre. Beside his solo projects he released series like Kool & Klean, Chillaxing Jazz Kollektion, Love Suggestions and Smooth Jazz. His newest album of the latter is Smooth Jazz III (2016).

What is the special feature of the Smooth Jazz series? Konstantin comments: “This is the style I started with back in 2004 recording my 1st album Downtown. I always wanted to be a part of SJ community since I first heard David Sanborn and Eric Marienthal play back in 80’s. And of course, as soon as I’ve got that awesome opportunity to record music at my home studio, I started to produce tracks to sound like my heroes. (two more came later – Kirk Whalum and Gerald Albright)

This series has nothing special except of just being a nice melodic easy listening Smooth Jazz. Unlike Kool&Klean and Chillaxing Jazz series it has a bit more chords and arrangement complicity, might be a bit funkier I would say.″
