Album Notes and Credits


Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote Personnel: Jeff Lorber (piano, keyboards).
Muze PNote It isn't hard to see why some jazz listeners might approach DOIN' THE D with trepidation. Flutist Alexander Zonjic is a smooth jazz artist, and one of the musicians featured on this 2009 release is the saxophonist so many jazz musicians love to hate: Kenny G. However, the album's title song boasts Brian Bromberg on acoustic bass--and keyboardist Jeff Lorber co-produced many of the tracks in addition to helping with the composing, arranging, and engineering. Lorber's presence is definitely a plus, and groove-oriented tunes like "Tourista," "Good as Goldie" and "Tongue Twister" (all of which Lorber composed and co-produced with Zonjic) balance commercial and artistic considerations. As a flutist, Zonjic has a long history of fluctuating between the funkiness of Herbie Mann and Hubert Laws on one hand and the blandness that has often plagued Tim Weisberg on the other. Lorber seems to bring out a bit more of the Mann/Laws side of things on the tunes that he contributes to. And for all its slick, glossy commercialism, DOIN' THE D still has more integrity than many of the smooth jazz discs that were released in the late 2000s.

Professional Reviews

JazzTimes (p.73)
- "[T]he late Freddie Hubbard's 'Little Sunflower' is lovingly recreated with the layering of Zonjic's flute and guest Kenny G's soprano sax."
