There are no surprises on Warren Hill's sixth disc Love Life. Hill is known for his soothing smooth saxophone playing, and while he gets tagged with the lite jazz moniker, he is really more of a pop artist than anything else. Love Life's title track features a horn duet with trumpeter Chris Botti, "Mr. Magic" is a tribute to the late saxophonist Grover Washington, Jr., "Why You Gotta Worry" touches on a pop-reggae beat, while "Mambo 2000" covers the Latin base, and rounding out the disc is a cover of the Commodores hit "Easy."
