From the pastel wallpapered rooms of suburban office parks everywhere, a soft sound emerged to offset the hard edges of 1980s new corporate lifestyle. A mixture of lightweight R&B, computer jazz, Quiet Storm, and instrumental easy-listening, Smooth Jazz painted an airbrushed wave over the American economy in a pre-internet era.
Our first entry into the Smooth Jazz Underground, Tony Palkovic’s self-released 1985 Born With A Desire LP is an icy vapor-wave soundtrack to the sunset drive in your mind. A gradient of drum machine and synth as you slip into anesthesia.
