Smooth Jazz Cafe!


A Star-Studded Ensemble Of Contemporary Jazz Players Join Together For The Ultra Melodic Smooth Jazz Cafe!

Featuring Frank Gambale, Chuck Loeb, Hal Lindes, Brian Tarquin, & Denny Jiosa

Los Angeles, CA - Pull up a chair, grab a cup of joe and get ready to hear some of the most lush, harmonious jazz guitarists around at the Smooth Jazz Cafe! This new project, set to be released September 30 on Purple Pyramid Records, features Australian jazz fusion great Frank Gambale, former Dire Straits guitarist Hal Lindes, Stan Getz sideman and current member of Fourplay, Chuck Loeb, and the Grammy nominated Denny Jiosa. And the whole thing is helmed by the supremely talented, multi-Emmy winning Brian Tarquin, who wrote all of the songs and produced the album as well as performs on it.

Hal Lindes waxes poetic about the project and its leader, calling Tarquin a “supreme maestro of the Gold Top and Marshall Stack” and describes the Smooth Jazz Cafe album as “an exquisite journey fueled by steel and wood, glowing hot tubes and Celestion speakers being pushed to their limit and beyond.”

Denny Jiosa shares “Brian and I met several years ago at the Gavin Smooth Jazz radio convention when we had simultaneous hit records. Great melody, tasteful playing, warm tones, and smooth grooves are always delivered by Brian! I am honored and excited to trade musical lines with such a versatile player!”

And finally, Chuck Loeb offers “I had a lot of fun playing on it. The band killed!”
