Description

funkysmooth is just what the name implies; music that can be both soothing in a background or ambient mode, but vibrant and rewarding when given an active listen. This is no repetitive "four-bar drum machine pattern and endless solo" type of record that many associate with "smooth jazz," yet neither is it full of incendiary be-bop craziness or arrangements of tired old standards. It is fresh, sophisticated, and hip, yet never pretentious or obscure.

Michael Allen Whipple is a multi-instrumentalist/producer who is a founding member of the world fusion band Chasm. He plays all members of the flute family, keyboards, congas and percussion, both acoustic and electronic, and has been working in the world of computer-assisted recording since the dawn of MIDI . He also indulges himself under the nom-de-sequencer Bodhisattva Jones, producing intensely personal music that stubbornly defies categorization.
