From the Press

NY Times


“The Smooth Cruise, organized by Smooth Jazz New York, a subsidiary of Marquee Concerts, doesn’t skimp on headliners.”

NY Times


“The enthusiasm was almost conceptual, rooted in the elegance of the pairing. I mean, Smooth Cruise: the two words seem meant for each other. Both cruises and smooth jazz hold the promise of a passive indulgence, of kicking back and letting go.”

NY Times


“Forty minutes into his sold-out first set on the Smooth Cruise on Wednesday, Boney James dialed up his crowd work with the efficient panache of a retail politician. First came the selection of a woman from the audience, who needed no cajoling to strut onstage and start dancing in a comically suggestive face-off with Mr. James and his tenor saxophone.”
