Smooth Jazz superstar Marion Meadows is without question one of the most popular and unique talents on the Jazz scene today. Blessed with movie star looks and the smoothest saxophone tone on the planet, Marion has sold close to one million albums in his brilliant career. His constant string of radio hits and relentless touring have garnered legions of fans, and his appearances with such varied artists as The Temptations, Michael Bolton and Will Downing are a testament to his broad audience appeal. Whisper is probably Marion’s most intimate and sensuous album yet. Co-produced by his long time collaborators, Bob Baldwin, who appears as a special guest on this album, and Michael Broen-ing, who has produced George Benson and Al Jar-reau, Whisper overflows with romantic, pulsating grooves. Highlights include brilliant originals ranging from smooth and sexy (“Turn Up The Quiet,” “Whisper”) to in-the-pocket groovers (“Here We Go,” “Bottom’s Up”). In addition, Marion reinvents Freddie Hubbard’s signature “Sky Dive” and Dave Valentine’s latin-tinged “Marcoshino,” bringing today’s sound to these jazz classics.
