"Smooth Edge" began as a garage band in the Sixties.

Tired of playing top forty music, they decided to take a chance on playing only the music that they wanted to play.

Miraculously, they worked the Metropolitan area from two to seven nights a week for seven https://www.tradebit.comying mostly clubs and saloons but, also, concerts, weddings and anything else that came along.

They started with a jazz oriented folk rock sound and soon incorporated the growing influences of soul and funky blues, taking tunes by the popular groups of the time and rearranging them to fit their own style.

The result was an easy, natural rocking sound, solid and driving for those who wanted to dance, but also intelligently played music for those who wanted to listen.

Many of those songs were eventually displaced by original music written by the group.

They felt that the most important thing about gigging was to keep the music fresh.

Inspiration was always embraced, whether at rehearsal or on the bandstand, producing those unexpected ideas that make live music worth listening to.

Sometimes (more often than not) the usual arrangements were discarded for ones that were improvised.

Depending on how they felt at any given moment, fast tunes were suddenly turned into ballads and slow ballads found themselves turned into experiments in speed.

Since 1976, when the band played its last gig in bellbottoms and body shirts, technology has brought music into a new era.

The Fender Rhodes piano has been replaced by a synthesizer as has the Fender Mustang guitar.

Who would have thought when they began playing, that an entire digital orchestra, string and horn sections, would someday be carried to the gig under someone's arm? In 1999, itching to play again, the band reunited.

Older and wiser, they produced their first recording aptly titled, "First Impression".

It shows that the easy listening sound that carried them through seven uncompromising, stubborn, successful years hasn't lost its edge.

Time has honed it to a...SMOOTH EDGE.
