AOR On The Radio: Soft Rock & Smooth Grooves

Picture: Clive Owen (Blood Ties)

This mix is inspired by the album 'AOR' from Ed Motta and his excellent mix for Wax Poetics: AOR with a funky, jazzy (Latin) twist. Ed Motta told Wax Poetics:

“This is the music I grew up listening to: Christopher Cross, Steely Dan, Doobie Brothers, Alessi Brothers, all these things, but in the last five years I’ve become obsessed with AOR, and I started to write many, many, many songs. Even Daft Punk called Paul Williams to be on their project. So, maybe it’s coming back a little, the idea of technical eloquence in music, nice musicians, nice solos…”
