AllMusic Review by

Smooth Sax Tribute to Boyz II Men includes ten of the R&B group's biggest hits, all performed instrumentally with saxophone leads and a background of gentle keyboards and light R&B texture. It's far, far less than bold. But the set still has strong qualities, particularly in its ability to refine Boyz II Men's material into smooth jazz, but avoid taking it so far that the songs lose all vitality. These versions are refined and predictable. But they're played well, and occasionally they find a way to incorporate some slight, slinky groove. Highlights include "On Bended Knee," "End of the Road," and "Water Runs Dry."
