Peace of Mind
Jeff Kashiwa's solo career has been in joyfully frenetic overdrive since the incredible success of Hyde Park (The Ah, Oooh Song), a #1 hit on Radio & Records's airplay chart for over eight weeks in 2000. His Native Language debut ANOTHER DOOR OPENS and its more acoustic-oriented 2002 follow-up SIMPLE TRUTH established him as one of smooth jazz's most dominant saxophone voices, yet in the midst of the breakneck tour schedule and in your face funk that characterizes his biggest hits, Kashiwa has also found true PEACE OF MIND - a soulful and lyrical concept that drives the gently rhythmic heart of his third Native Language release. Produced by frequent collaborators Brian Bromberg and Chuck Loeb, and Kashiwa himself, the album features performances by keyboardists Jeff Lorber and Dan Siegel, and also includes a performance by Kashiwa's former cohort Russ Freeman of the Rippingtons. Includes the hit single Peace of Mind, as well as surefire classics such as Homeward Bound, Ecstasy, and Stay With Me.
