Ray Obiedo

Smooth jazz guitarist Ray Obiedo was born and raised in Richmond, California, where as a child he frequently traveled to nearby San Francisco to take in free concerts by the likes of the Jimi Hendrix Experience and Cream; still, he did not pick up the guitar until age 17, also drawing considerable influence from acts including James Brown, Miles Davis, and Earth, Wind & Fire. At the outset of his career, Obiedo regularly shifted between jazz and R&B, working with a variety of artists including Herbie Hancock, Julian Priester, and Sheila E.; he also led the fusion unit Kick as well as the rock outfit Rhythmus 21. After signing to Windham Hill, Obiedo made his solo debut with 1989's Perfect Crime, followed two years later by Iguana; with 1993's Sticks and Stones, he reached the Top Ten on Billboard's Contemporary Jazz charts. After 1995's African-influenced Zulaya, he resurfaced two years later with Sweet Summer Days, and 1999 saw Obiedo move to the Domo label for the release of Modern World, a hybrid of R&B, pop, and Latin jazz. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

After a helluva week, I spoke with my BFF in Baltimore who turned me on to Eric Essix. Put him in my Pandora list and Ray was played. What a wonderful sound.

We need the old jazz connoisseur Russ Davis back in Atlanta to kick up the Jazz dust again. I miss having Russ here (and talking college football back in the late 80's when I would call in on 94 Q's Jazz Flavors and ask who was playing). Last I heard, he was in New York and I was able to talk to him there and get him to get me in to Boney James promotional gig at Clinton Recording Studios in Manhattan, promoting his Seduction album. Not enough Jazz left on the radio ! Miss my old friend.
Always loved Ray......:). . . . . . c o o l stuff

I just started reading these comments on Pandora and I am so glad they do this. It is encouraging to see so many people that love this music. We have the same problem in Raleigh, NC. No jazz stations at all. I think it is really cool when I read a comment and it is exactly how I feel, you just know people get it! I hope that the artists get to see this and are encouraged! Thanks Ray for the awesome grooves!!
I love this groove!!!! Keep it coming! Thanks
