Rodney Thompson

..Although Texas is known for its blues and country artists, talented keyboardist Rodney Thompson shows it may be a great melting pot for jazz as well. His “Define Smooth” album is exactly that, smooth and filled with hints of gospel, soul, and R&B. “Forever in Your Eyes” features an alluring sax which is gracefully layered with smooth and silky vocals. Blending R&B with the sounds of Thelonious Monk, “749” features some of Thompson’s best keyboard work and highlights that classic jazz songwriting form that separates this genre from blues or rock. Whether you are just looking to relax or hear some exceptional keyboards playing, then “Define Smooth” should be your next CD purchase. ..-Shaun and the Radioindy. com Reviewer Team
