AllMusic Review by

Rhino's Smooth Grooves: Smooth Jazz Vol. 1 collects pieces by smooth jazz pioneers and stars like Mike Maineri, Rodney Franklin, Ronnie Laws and Harvey Mason. Fourplay's "Bali Run," Bob James' "Angela (Theme from "Taxi")," David Sanborn's "Straight to the Heart" and the Yellowjackets' "Priscilla" are some of the album's other highlights. A worthwhile retrospective of smooth jazz's early years.
