 CD Review of Fourplay - Heartfelt on BMG/Bluebird @ jazzreview.com
Fourplay has signed with Bluebird Records, a division of BMG’s RCA Victor Group, indicating a slight break from the past and a moving on from the group’s popular recordings with Warner Brothers.
Formed only in 1991--for it seems that Fourplay has been playing quite a bit longer than that--this group of well-established, highly in-demand musicians has permeated the airwaves with its light and infectious approach to contemporary jazz.
Even though the members of the quintet that is Fourplay (paying attention?) could pursue their own careers in studio work or backing up a wide range of musical talent--including jazz, pop, R&B or blues--the fact that they choose to play together signifies that they enjoy the concept.
