"Unstoppable" CD Review (The Smooth Jazz Ride)

Zoe — Unstoppable Mar. 26, 2013

A pleasant feel-good listening treat came my way recently from the group Zoe. The CD is called Unstoppable (due to be released on April 16), and boy, is it ever chock full of great material. An 18-track listening experience that borders on heavenly.

I reviewed Zoe’s last album back in 2010, an effort called Let’s Fly. I was absolutely taken by the material then and thought that it probably couldn’t get any better than that. Well, in my opinion, it just did with this new release. You are seriously hard-pressed to find a bad or even mediocre track here as the group plays serious grooves as though those grooves were the only “living” things in the world.

Drawing on its own very competent writing skills, many of its members contribute to this album. They are also joined by Grammy winner/Oscar-nominated guitarist Jim Peterik (who is a powerful story unto himself), the lovely trumpeter Cindy Bradley, keys giant/producer Jeff Lorber, and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer bassist Chip Shearin.

The group, in case you’re unfamiliar with them, consists of Reginald Harris doing the honors on sax (and he can just smooth you out), keyboardist/vocalist Cleveland Belin, Jr., drummer David Ferebee, bassist H. Maurice Fonville, and percussionist and trumpeter Bolivar “Chico” Guadalupe. Each is a true master of his instrument. That much you can hear right from the start of the opening full track (there is a brief interlude first –which is also not be ignored).

Because I am so taken by this group’s music and its ability to remain so consistent with its style and feel thus far, I would have a difficult time choosing faves. All of the tracks breathe and speak to you in that special classy way. “Always Thinking of You” with Jim Peterik, “It Is What It Is” with Cindy Bradley, the poppin’ “Heaven Bound,” and Lorber’s presence on the classic “Mister Magic” with that Zoe style are but a very small handful of standouts.

When the entire album is not only a standout but a testament to what true musicians can accomplish with focus, shared ideas, and that common bond of groove down to the soul, you can only sit back and let it all take you to all the beautiful places in your mind. People, this, quite simply, is great, tight stuff.

Zoe, once again, a big hats-off and kudos to you for an excellent job of finding those right buttons to push. Knowing those buttons will surely lead to some really wonderful things for this solid band. They are truly Unstoppable – Ronald Jackson
