Using the minimalistic and expansive tastes of new age, blended with jazz harmonies, the memorable hooks of pop and colored with accessible R&B grooves, Bach has designed a tapestry of full-bodied easy listening music for a wide variety of contexts. Taking influences from Pat Metheny to Paul Winter, the Yellow Jackets to Sting to David Benoit, “Five Thousand Words” is a new standard in smooth jazz that leaves behind the elevator-music cliche and ventures into the expressive and evocative.
