Overview

After many years as a sideman performing and recording with some of the brightest stars in both the pop and jazz worlds, flutist and saxophonist Peter Gordon made his initial splash in the smooth jazz world with 1990's The Long Way Home. The title of this second release is an appropriate description of the diversity reflected in the collection's ten tracks, which blend his broad musical experiences from the classical, pop, R&B, and jazz fields. The album opens with "Nobody's Fool," a breezy and melodic showcase for his tender yet whimsical flute style. A lively rhythm section, sweet acoustic piano sprinklings, and some fanciful electric guitar licks from label owner Ken Navarro combine with the flute to make a rousing introduction. With its dynamic and percussive edges, "Getting Warmer" provides a super rhythmic R&B groove behind Gordon's soaring flute melody. The vocal track, "Can't Stop My Heart," featuring soulful singer Kenny Harris, is made for romantic quiet storm-type listening. Despite a decent commercial and critical reception, Gordon was an early casualty of the smooth jazz marketplace and made a quick fade as a solo artist.
