Album Review: "The Great Hall of Smooth Jazz" by Robert Lee Balderrama (9/10)

The Great Hall of Smooth Jazz

Bullfrog Records

Producers: Chad Cunningham and Robert Lee Balderrama

Robert Lee “Bobby” Balderrama was the original guitarist for Question Mark and The Mysterians. They had a major hit in 1966 with “96 Tears.” His career has propelled him from garage rock to, now, the top of the smooth jazz charts. This is a compilation that features album cuts and singles from his ever-evolving catalog. Much of the material spotlights fleet-fingered solos and seductive grooves. Also included is his No. 1 Billboard hit, “Any Moment.”
