Three-quarters of Sade's back-up band make their album debut under the moniker Sweetback (as in Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song, Melvin Van Peebles' 1971 trend-setting film). But whereas the svelte chanteuse makes music that suggests upper-crust, non-smoking jazz clubs, Sweetback's music is more "underground" in tone.

||Sade's SMOOTH band|
Sweetback's CD has definitely have the smooth sounds and melody experimenting with other vocal artists (Maxwell). Great experiment but I'm a loyal SADE fan.
By a reviewer (El Sobrante, CA)
These guys are trully exceptional. They create one of the most beautiful smooth jazz albums ever. I was very lucky to be introduced by a very well "educated" seller in a record shop somewhere in the States.
