This energetic new CD release aptly sums up this self- proclaimed smooth jazz guitarist and songwriter. Although his love for rhythmic grooves is primarily what drives the compositions on his project, one cannot help but hear fragments of Wes Montgomery and George Benson within the fluid melodies. "Just Groovin" captures the spicy flavor of each composition while maintaining the individual sound carefully crafted from Ronny's imaginative spirit. With four previous CDs under his belt including, "Long Time Comin'," "Laid Back," "Got Groove" and "Simply Stated," this new release reveals a satisfying and unique approach to his compositional style. Alan Alexander (keyboards/piano), Jeff Knoettner (keyboards/piano), Karl McNeil (bass), Sam Bates (bass), Vernell Mincey (drums), Scott Martin (sax), Stan Martin (Trumpet), and Andy Martin (trombone).Ronny Smith revels in the exploration and growth of each musical project and "Just Groovin" is a substantial part of that journey.
