Chicago native [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Steve Cole[/lastfm]’s smokey sax has been a mainstay in Smooth Jazz now for over 10 years and his new song, “Undun”, is the latest addition to The Oasis’ library.

Steve Cole gives a lush and sultry treatment to [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Guess Who[/lastfm]’s classic track “Undun” and it’s just one of many orchestral reworkings to be found on his latest CD Moonlight.

Moonlight is Cole’s 8th full-length release and it marks a slight change in direction.  Typically, Steve Cole goes for the more funky side of Smooth Jazz with a healthy dash of romantic slow ballads thrown in for good measure.

This time out, Cole goes for a classic orchestral sound that harks back to the classic lush arrangements of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Nelson Riddle[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Billy May[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]John Buzon Trio[/lastfm] back in the late 1950’s and early 60’s.

In addition to covering The Guess Who, Cole also give the full string and sax treatment to [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Burt Bachrach[/lastfm]’s “The Look Of Love”, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Beatles[/lastfm]’ “The Long And Winding Road” and the classic torch ballad “Cry Me A River”.

Steve Cole’s website has more info.  The new CD, Moonlight, will be available next Tuesday, Feb. 1st.

Here’s Steve giving the sax treatment to [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Sarah McLachlan[/lastfm]’s “Angel”.
