Bobby Caldwell | House of Cards | Starmine Records

The legendary and super-sexy vocalist Bobby Caldwell is back with his first album of original tunes since 2005 with HOUSE OF CARDS, and you can bet the house that the wait was worth it! Like many of you, I first grooved to Caldwell with “What You Won’t Do for Love,” a radio staple and baby-makin’ fan favorite for more than 30 years now. That classic Caldwell sound is back on HOUSE OF CARDS, from the cool swing of the first single, “What About Me,” to the balladry of “Mazatlan” and the emotional sound of “Blue,” which boasts sax superstar Dave Koz. Showcasing Caldwell’s skills as a writer, performer and producer, HOUSE OF CARDS also offers two fresh country tunes—that’s right, country!—which Caldwell blends seamlessly into his suave style, as well as a fiery Tango that would fit perfectly on “Dancing With the Stars.” Caldwell now has more great songs to treat fans to during his amazing live shows, and you’ll want to add these 10 tracks to your collection! ~BRIAN SOERGEL

“Music needs to make the world a more beautiful place, but sometimes it’s gotta have some fire to it as well.” That’s a quote from L.A.-based keyboard virtuoso ED ROTH, whose debut self-titled album has indeed fired up Smooth Jazz radio as of late. After a successful run with his first radio single, “Summertime,” he’s taken a fresh, funky look at Ambrosia’s #1 hit, “Biggest Part of Me.” There’s plenty more to love about this album...
