Smoothnsaxy / Press

“Hot, soulful, saxy Smooth Jazz wth full bodied sax playing from R.L. Walker (Smoothnsaxy) on his THIRD TIME’S THE CHARM! Nine soulfully, spirited tracks ranging from seductive ballads to upbeat jams, showcase an exciting new direction… one that utilizes fresh beats and new grooves to support Walker’s horn work, which also digs in deeper. Songs like “Malibu Chaser” “Pocket Change,” and “Cubana Flow” show off a new side to the artist. He sites his inspiration on his website, while maintaining his own signature sound, “I really sat back and listened to many dynamic performers such as Walter Beasley, Boney James, and Najee while creating this CD.” As they say, THIRD TIME’S THE CHARM and in this case, it absolutely delivers the goods! ~SANDY SHORE”

“The mastermind behind Smoothnsaxy and Ear Relevance, R.L. Walker, releases a new solo project featuring smooth, sensual saxophone and cool upbeat grooves! MANY FACETS shows the multiple sides that this artist is capable of delivering musically… from the chilled grooves of the title track (featuring Walker on an alluring xylophone), to upbeat jams like we’ve been dancing to on “Up In the Club”! The artist calls this collection “laid back neo-soul,” which he says encompasses his everyday spirit. The chilled Washington D.C. saxophonist’s main object is to make people happy… MANY FACETS will deliver big on this promise. Download, sway, smile!”

"in our opinion the performance is strong, and the songs themselves well though-out, certainly well above the average material that permeates the current market."

Mark Stanley - SoundTraxx

“This cleverly titled album, EAR RELEVANCE, serves up smooth and chilled sax grooves from beginning to end. Slow jams and mid-tempo tunes that are sure to make your days more relaxed and your weekends more tranquilo! Smoothnsaxy is the brainchild of saxophonist and composer, R.L. Walker and EAR RELEVANCE is his debut release. Fans of Najee, Kim Waters and George Howard will appreciate the Washingon, D.C. based artist’s laidback vibe here, with the Smooth Jazz single “Summer Swag,” currently making an impact with radio airplay! Each song blows through like a lovely, contemporary jazz breeze… with 9 tracks total. EAR RELEVANCE will put you into a calm, peaceful state of mind, now that’s relevant! Download your copy or purchase the full CD now and start smoothing out your world!”

“Smooth! Reviewed the album on the advice of my co-worker, the tracks deliver as he said it would! Beautiful sounds, especially the soprano sax.”
