Smooth Sailin' is the debut release by multi-instrumentalist Marty Grebb. Back in the mid-'60s, Grebb was a founding member of the pop band the Buckinghams, and was also a backup musician who played with the Dells, Bonnie Raitt, Etta James, and Willie Nelson, to name a few. On his Telarc debut, Grebb plays piano, B-3, a bevy of saxophones, and guitar, and also handles lead vocals. He surrounds himself with high-profile guests, including Raitt, Taj Mahal, Steve Cropper, Amos Garrett, and Rick Braun. The 13 tunes are all originals by Grebb or are co-written by him, and range from horn-saturated soul-blues, lazy New Orleans grooves, and gospel-funk to smooth radio-ready contemporary blues.
