This is jazz lite, no doubt about it--the four storied musicians who make up Fourplay would be the first to tell you so. But YES, PLEASE is far from the overripe, cloying tones employed by so many "pop jazz" artists. Instead, it's full of subtlety, emotive, carefully considered solo statements, and tunes intended for more than coffee- commercial soundtrack music.
Though he contributes the least in terms of original compositions, veteran guitarist Larry Carlton offers some of the most soulful playing here. His warm-but-precise tone is simultaneously organic and cerebral as he improvises over the alternately funky and balladic motifs of the tunes. Keyboardist Bob James provides the same indefatigable blend of catchiness and taste that's made him so successful for decades. The rhythm section of Harvey Mason and Nathan East, who've backed a thousand contemporary jazz artists, keep the rhythms visceral without losing any of the more intimate nuances.
