#1, 2 & 3 ON THE BILLBOARD/R&R SMOOTH JAZZ CHART AND A PERSONAL NOTE FROM DARREN

"Wow, What an incredible week..... I've had such great opportunities to work with some of the most incredible artists in the smooth jazz genre and just found out that my productions have just gone 1, 2, and 3 on the R&R Smooth Jazz Charts! I've had four in the top ten for the last several weeks - the incredible talents of Wayman Tisdale, Eric Darius, Dave Koz and Tim Bowman.... they're still all in the top ten but I just found out that three of those have gone 1-2-3 including back to back #1's.....

1 - Dave Koz "Life in the Fast Lane"
2 - Eric Darius "Goin' All Out" (previously at #1)
3 - Tim Bowman "Sweet Sundays"

I also personally mixed the number 1 and 2 songs.... I've had number one hits as a producer before but these are my first number 1 mixes as a mix engineer! Just wanted to share my joy with you all...... God has blessed me abundantly and I am very gratetful! These four artists are the best - all incredible musicians, people and friends. And I've also had an incredible cast of supporting session players - Mel Brown, Frank Selman, and my twin brother Jason - you guys are awesome!"
