AllMusic Review by

Smooth Jazz: The Originals, Vol. 1 gathers smooth jazz tracks from the genre's pioneers, including Special EFX, Larry Carlton, Joe Sample, and Tom Grant. Acoustic Alchemy's "Mr. Chow," Lee Ritenour's "Night Rhythms," Dave Grusin's "Mountain Dance," and David Benoit's "Linus and Lucy" are among the mellow instrumentals featured on this worthwhile compilation.
