    Eddie Gip Noble – In The Lite Of Things

    For the album In the Light of Things, Noble selected well-known, highly-charted hits (R&B, pop, rock, jazz and country) from the past five decades and turned them into instrumental smooth jazz. His wide-ranging song choices include selections seldom heard in smooth jazz. The material comes from many genres: rock (Bruce Springsteen’s “Streets of Philadelphia”), British pop (The Beatles’ “Blackbird,” Peter Gabriel’s “Red Rain,” Sting’s Desert Rose,” Tears for Fears’ “Shout”), R&B/pop (Michael Jackson’s “This Girl is Mine,” Vanessa Carlton’s “1,000 Miles,” Vanessa Williams’ “Save the Best for Last”), jazz (Vince Guaraldi’s “Linus and Lucy”) and country (Charlie Rich’s “Behind Closed Doors,” George Strait’s “Run”).

    Noble also performs an original (“Don’t Want to Be Alone Tonight”) co-written with Dee Dee McNeil (who has written for the Supremes, the Four Tops and Gladys Knight) and sung by Zuri (whose background includes Chaka Kahn, Brenton Woods, and Noble’s first album). Another special guest on the album is electric guitarist Jim Henkin who adds a scorching solo on “Linus and Lucy.”
