Concord Records will release Smooth Jazz Hits: Ultimate Grooves, the latest installment in the series of smooth jazz compilations. The 12-track album features titles by stand-out contemporary artists such as Dave Koz, Gerald Albright, Mindi Abair, Norman Brown, Jessy J, Peter White, and more.
"Selected exclusively from albums that have claimed the top half-dozen slots on the Billboard Contemporary Jazz Albums chart, this release brings together, in one collection, some of the most in-the-pocket recordings in smooth jazz today." said Nick Phillips, producer of the compilation and VP of Catalog and Jazz A&R at Concord Music Group. "From the irresistible, funky shuffle feel of Dave Koz's chart-topping 'Anything's Possible' to the driving, Latin-spiced rhythms of Jessy J's 'Hot Sauce,' Smooth Jazz Hits: Ultimate Grooves, quite simply, features the top artists in smooth jazz in their most grooving tracks."
