Not the best Scott album, but there are a few memorable tracks among the drum machines.
Peak on the US Billboard Top 200 chart: Did not chart
Peak on the US Billboard Top Contemporary Jazz Albums chart: #8
Best: TCB In E, the ten minute album closer recorded live at the Blue Note, Tokyo
Good: If I Could Cry, Just Takin' A Walk, The Beat Is On, I'll Still Be Lovin' You (yes, a cover of the Restless Heart song - reborn as a AC slow jam with vocals from Phil Perry)
Middlin': Smokin' Section, Lonely One, A Short Visit, Lost Again
Skip: Cruisin' Bayou
There's one track I couldn't categorize: track 5, Ode To Billie Joe with vocals by Patty Smyth. As you can imagine, it doesn't really fit on a smooth jazz CD, but Smyth's voice is perfect and the lyrics are still eerie as hell and I can't say I enjoy it but I want to listen to it over and over anyway.
