About Smooth Jazz Music:

Pandora says:
"Smooth Jazz boasts the kinds of saxophone players who lean back when they hit those high notes ... jazz that's smoother than silk pajamas."

jazzradio.com says:
"Smooth as butter. This is Jazz that flows like water, laid back and pleasing to the ear."

allmusic.com says:
"Smooth Jazz is an outgrowth of fusion, one that emphasizes its polished side. Generally, smooth jazz relies on rhythms and grooves instead of improvisation. There are layers of synthesizers, lite-funk rhythms, lite-funk bass, elastic guitars, and either trumpets, alto, or soprano saxophones."

urbandictionary.com says:
"The kind of music played on The Weather Channel."
"A niche form of pop music that is appreciated by people who don't like jazz. They think it sounds cool to be a smooth jazz listener and don't realize that it's not jazz at all. To paraphrase Mark Twain, the difference between jazz and smooth jazz is like the diffference between lightning and a lightning bug."
"A musical genre characterized by bland instrumental watered-down jazz; the soundtrack for men in between mid-life-crisises. Every city has a radio station devoted to this brand of ambient droning -- usually called 'The Oasis.' " (I especially like that one.)

And Wikipedia says:
"Smooth jazz is a commercially oriented, crossover jazz which came to prominence in the 1980s, displacing the more venturesome jazz fusion from which it emerged. It avoids the improvisational "risk-taking" of jazz fusion, emphasizing melodic form. Much of the music was initially "a combination of jazz with easy-listening pop music and lightweight R&B" "

If it's smooth and it's jazzy? It's Smooth Jazz. So say I, the Dr.
