Featuring the soul-stirring acoustic guitar of Marc Antoine on three songs, and the Slim Man band: John E., George, Kevin, and Hit Man Howie Z. 'Solstice' is reminiscent of the Slim Debut CD 'End of the Rainbow' - more pop than jazz.
This CD contains incredible new Versions of old Slim Man songs, kind of like a "Best Of"! The Band got into the studio and cut them live in tape, just the way youŽd hear them at a Slim Show. This is the soundtrack before the movie.
If the Nat King Cole Trio and Lester Young got together and rercorded a collection of standards, it would sound like this. This CD features the Slim Man band recorded live in the studio, and this time Slim Man doesn't play bass! Geoff Hazelrigg plays the upright bass, and his playing is definitely up right. Including two new Slim songs: "Sweet Little Angel", and "For Now And Forever".
This CD is a collection of holiday standards, along with two original soon-to-be classic tunes: "All I Want For Christmas", and "It's Almost Christmas". Featuring big name guest players: Peter White, Randy Brecker, Freddie Ravel, Marc Antoine. The perfect Christmas gift!
Slim Man's fourth CD features Marc Antoine, Ken Navarro, Joe Ercole and Kevin Levi and sultry songs like, "Sweet Serenade," Weeping Willow," Don't Say Goodbye," and "A Night Like This." It was voted "Best Contemporary Jazz" in the Jazziz 2001 Readers Poll.

"Slim's sensual sound is a perfect match for today's smooth jazz format... this is his best work to date. It's refreshingly original and his vocals show a lot of depth and emotion...**** (excellent)"
