Like other listeners commenting here, Smooth Operator was repeatedly popping up on one of my stations--do n ' t know why that seems to be the only one that comes up, but it's AWESOME! I don't see how qptmusic (first comment below) gets "terrible" out of it, or how anyone can think so.

To hear more of his songs, I seeded a new station from him. It plays several of his other songs, and all that I've heard are good, and a very good station too--even without thumbs up/down.

I have only heard smooth operator and thought he did a great job on Sade's song and made it his own, far from boring. We need more B3 players in todays Jazz.

It is up to the artist to aticulate a well known score and turn it into something fresh and his own. Mel davis has done it in style with "Smooth Operator"

I READ THE COMMENT OF qptmusic,AND ITS CLEAR THEY HAVE NO CLUE WHEN IT COMES TO TRUE MUSICIANS OR IMPROV/CREAT E D IDEA.MEL DAVIS HAS CAPTURED A NEW WAVE OF SADE,AND PROVED THAT MUSICIANS CAN ARTICULATE FROM ALL ANGLES!

I have only heard one song, his remake of "smooth operator", so I don't know if it is a good judge of this artist, but it was terrible. This song was so boring, the only reason I wanted to see who it was, is so I can avoid it at all costs.
