As I am relaxing, I find myself searching for various types of jazz to listen and contemplate on various objectives. During my search, I found an old favorite by longtime “smooth jazz” musician Ronny Laws. “Tidal Wave” should be recognized by Hip Hop/Rap fans, as it was sampled by Black Moon, “Who Got The Props?”.
Ronny delivers a masterful performance with this song. His intro is smooth, yet as the song progresses, he builds up to a more intense solo….ending and smoothing out…like a tidal wave.
