Smooth James is a collection of "Smooth Jams".
I love Smooth Jazz and I created some of my own smooth sounds in this collection for people who love Smooth Jazz like I do.
Featuring some of my more relaxing, laid-back songs, this collection is perfect for a nice drive or an afternoon in "chill mode." I've got some "zesty" tracks in here, too!
Listen and enjoy!
My cover of "I Can't Make You Love Me" by Bonnie Rait, featuring the voice of Dionne Lightwood.

The Way - reason 4 beat instrumental sample flip piano beat
This is a sample-flip beat video / piano music video combination showing how I create moody instrumental music with a ton of piano improvisation and playing by ear. In the beginning of the video, I flip a sample to make a background beat and then later, I improvise on the piano after figuring out the key the beat is in by ear. I develop the rest of the piano parts and instrumentation into the final song. I mad this beat using Propellerhead Reason 4, the Akai MPD32 and the M-Audio Oxygen8 v2 MIDI controllers.
My love for contemporary jazz and Smooth Jazz has grown a great deal over the years and I have started to think of it as "Grown-Man HipHop". Smooth James is my collection of jazzy, piano moody instrumental music and it isthe start of a different musical path for me.
Days End is one of the first tracks I created for this smooth jazz collection and the track features my piano performance reflecting a recent vacation trip to Utah with my family.
I created this track on January 13, 2007, but I left it "on the shelf" because I didn't feel that it was complete. However, listening to it today, I was blown away at the simplicity - and it just fit my mood for the day. It's amazing how music can do that!

What's good fam ? Yo I replied about that track earlier "When Im Gone". Man I need that joint super bad. I kept listening to it over and over and I already got a song wrote for it. Its about my grandmother that died while I was holding her hand and how I was rebellious but she continued to pray for me and I didn't give my life to Christ until after she passed. Man its mad emotional I was crying while I wrote it. Please get back at me fam.
Grace and Peace - Ricon
