The term ‘Smooth Jazz’ was originally coined by radio executives to describe the then new genre that fused blues, jazz, R&B, funk, rock and pop influences. Smooth Jazz tracks are generally down-tempo instrumentals favoring melody and smooth grooves over the sophisticated rhythms, faster tempos and long improvisations typical in jazz.

“That kid woke the blues back up.” - Buddy Guy

500 years from now, the blues will still be very much alive. As they are prone to do today, musicologists, critics and blues aficionados will still be crafting top-ten blues guitarist lists and debating who was the greatest of them all. Meanwhile, students of guitar just like us will be copping SRV licks because there will never be an artist who has had as much impact and influence on electric blues guitar as Stevie Ray Vaughn.
