about

Album review, Smoothjazz.com

"Smooth just got a little hipper with the delivery of Bobby Ricketts' SKIN TO SKIN. Nu jazz meets urban grooves to create a stylish Smooth Jazz vibe. Warm, exotic, deep. This is one of the most scintillating albums of 2008! The American saxophonist makes Scandinavia his home. Copenhagen, Denmark has always been a haven for expatriate musicians... "sax players in particular," according to Bobby. Jazz legends Ben Webster and Dexter Gordon are two examples of artists who honed their craft in the Danish capital. Ricketts continues this tradition. He's actually become a TV icon, having performed on more major prime time television shows than any musician in Denmark. Working as music director during the past ten years on some of the most popular TV shows in Danish broadcasting has made Bobby Ricketts a household name. Due to such a demanding schedule, SKIN TO SKIN is the gifted performer's first solo release in many years. This outstanding recording is jam packed with ten solid tracks, each one offering up the 'Wow Factor'... from stunning originals to sensational covers like Coltrane's "Naima," Leon Russell's "A Song For You," and the OutKast smash "The Way You Move," and featuring guest performances by world-class musicians including Delmar Brown (Sting, Gil Evans), Chris Minh Doky (Michael Brecker, Mike Stern) and some of the finest players in Northern Europe including several from his own TV band. SKIN TO SKIN... superb nu jazz, elegant craftsmanship and fresh ideas!"
