This variation of traditional Jazz is recognized for its display of great harmonic lines and a lesser degree of improvisation. Some music critics consider that this genre of music was created by artists searching for a deeper Pop sound, merging it at the same time with the roots of the American Soul and Funky music.
Experts place the birth of Smooth Jazz halfway through the 70’s, but its real peak took place during the 80’s. Relevant pioneers of this type of music have been George Benson (reconverted after some albums of traditional Jazz), Grover Washington Jr., Kenny G., Larry Carlton, Al Jarreau (RIP), Herb Alpert, Chuck Mangione, Gato Barbieri (RIP), Dave Koz and many more.
