Smooth Jazz Plays the Hits is a fine sampling of jazz artists and vocalists who have recorded for the Shanachie label. All ten tracks are cover versions of soul, R&B, and pop-soul hits including "Ain't No Sunshine" (Nestor Torres), "Could It Be I'm Falling in Love?" (Fantasy Band), "Walk on By" (Bob Baldwin), and "What Does It Take (To Win Your Love)" (Candy Dulfer). If you're looking for background music for the office or lite party music, this compilation will do the trick.
