Acoustic Alchemy Red Dust CD Review

By: Clyde Lee Dennis

Red Dust And Spanish Lace is the latest Smooth Jazz CD put out by the highly group Acoustic Alchemy and they have once again delivered a brilliant collection of tracks. I’m confident Acoustic Alchemy fans, and Smooth Jazz fans alike will be pleased with this one.

Red Dust And Spanish Lace grabs your attention right from the very beginning with Mr. Chow and doesn't let go until the very last note of the very last song Red Dust And Spanish Lace, which by the way is another great track.

One of the refreshingly nice things about this CD is the way all of the participating artists seem to be really enjoying themselves. Combine that with the overall presentation and you’ve got one of Acoustic Alchemy most impressive releases ever.

Listen and I think you’ll agree that the song choices are excellent, the production is outstanding and Acoustic Alchemy is clearly a group that is in top form. This is a first rate CD, delivering a little something for everyone. I give it my highest recommendation. It’s quite simply great listening. A must buy if you're even mildly into Smooth Jazz music.

I’m of the opinion that Red Dust And Spanish Lace is certainly some of this groups best work in a few years. A totally enjoyable CD and an outstanding release. What I call must have music. I give it two thumbs up because it’s a collection that even the casual Smooth Jazz fan can appreciate and enjoy.

While the entire CD is really very good some of my favorites are track 3 - The Stone Circle, track 5 - Girl With A Red Carnation, and track 9 - Red Dust And Spanish Lace

My SmoothLee Bonus Pick, and the one that got Sore [...as in "Stuck On REpeat"] is track 6 - The Colonel And The Ashes. Outstanding!
