smooth music cruise, finally

clicking around, I came up by site selling "smooth music cruise" somewhere around Bahamas winter'09 - while I am not persuaded (yet?) to spend that amount of money for cruise, I was impressed by idea to runaway from cold winter into warm smooth jazz cruise. And name list is also impressive:

Boney James, Mindi Abair, Larry Carlton, Heather Headley, Acoustic Alchemy, Greg Adams, Marion Meadows, Steve Cole, Paul "Shilts" Weimar, Steve Oliver, Chieli Minucci, Michael Lington, Alan Hewitt, Althea Rene

There are few videos around on internet, from same kind of event in 2007, e.g. this one with Boney James, Candy Dulfer, Gerald Albright & more

I wish I could run away from my job one day ;)

Smooth Jazz All Sax Show - more sweet music

well, I had to write about this few weeks ago... Jur, author of great smooth jazz podcast, has delivered another episode as he promised - already for few weeks I get a fun from it

In Episode 9, April, of the Smooth Jazz Sax Show you can listen to some great Smooth Jazz Sax music again. The first track is from The Sax Pack ft Steve Cole/Jeff Kashiwa & Kim Waters, after that Kenny G with "Fiesta Loca", next is a track from Eric Daniel & Friends first solo album, then Courtney Pine, Richard Elliot, Bobby Rickett's "Back in the Game", "Together Again" from Dave Koz, The Rippingtons, Randy Scott, Nelson Rangell with a song called "City Lights", Gerald Albright, great Smooth Jazz talent Konstantin Klashtorni, and the last track is from Al Jarreau ft. Boney James.

caddies continue to follow me...

last time I wrote about caddies, I thought they might read me, and eventually stop stalking me... well, they didn't

walk with camera in Munkkiniemi

The weather has been so good last weekend that I couldn't resist to make another walk in down town with camera. It was Munkkiniemi district of Helsinki this time - it all started nearby of cafe Torpanranta after jump from 4th tram on end of line. Then I has walked along Tiilimäki hill, rather fashionable area. And finally came back to jump on 4th tram again.
