    Fourplay is the ultimate smooth-jazz outfit. Made up of four of the finest crossover artists, this group presents a cohesive mix of modern jazz and instrumental pop. Except for the opening track, "Fields of Gold," written by Sting, JOURNEY is made up of all original material; each player contributes tunes, and bassist Nathan East sings on about half the album. Tracks such as "From Day One," "Departure," and "Avalabop" sound similar to Pat Metheny's early ECM releases. However, these pieces are decidedly sweeter than Metheny's repertoire.
    "147 4th Street" features some bold playing from Larry Carlton (known for his work with Steely Dan). The acclaimed guitarist also plays a great bluesy solo on his own composition "Cool Train." However, this album is generally made up of carefully restrained improvisations. The smartly composed, mellow compositions are left to speak for themselves on this disc of warm and breezy music.
