AllMusic Review by

Jazz in an R&B Groove is a fine sampling of the jazz artists and vocalists on the 2004 High Note roster. All 11 tracks are cover versions of soul, R&B, and standards including "Let's Stay Together" (Houston Person), "The Closer I Get to You" (Charles Earland Tribute Band), "What a Difference a Day Makes" (Irene Reid), "Night Life" (Dakota Staton) and "Watermelon Man" (Red Holloway). All of these tracks have been previously released but it's still a great way to get familiar with the High Note label and audiophiles will be interested in knowing that this title, and the companion volume Kinda Jazzy Kinda Funky, can be played on both standard CD players as well as SA-CD players.
