Given Doc's reputation for musical excellence it's no surprise the guitarist was able to assemble an all-star lineup for his album "Laid Back". Laid Back features performances by bassists Stanley Clarke and Marcus Miller, percussionist Sheila E., flutist/saxophonist Najee, soprano saxophonist Boney James, keyboardist Patrice Rushen, pianist Bobby Lyle and tenor saxophonists Gerald Albright and Kirk Whalum. "Its just a perfect example of reaping what you sow," the guitarist says, explaining how he was able to pool such stellar talent for his album.

On his Discovery Records album Laid Back, guitarist/producer/arranger Doc Powell creates luxuriant contemporary jazz with a cool R&B underpinning. Produced by "The Doctor" himself the album features 11 tracks ranging from satiny fusion to soul-kissed balladry and sensitively rendered interpretations. These various musical settings provide Doc with a forum for his unique guitar technique - a warm sound accented with occasional bursts of virtuosi flash.

Doc's ability to bring out the best in a song has not gone unnoticed by the music industry. A revered session musician Doc Powell rose to renown as a fixture of Luther Vandross's recording and touring band. During a career spanning 15 years Doc has performed with such heavyweights as Aretha Franklin, Quincy Jones, George Benson, Dionne Warwick, Al Jarreau, Teddy Pendergrass, Vanessa Williams, McCoy Tyner and the late Phyllis Hyman. His distinct guitar sound has been heard in popular commercials, hit movies and Emmy Award-winning soap operas. But Doc is more than just a supporting player. A compelling solo artist in his own right, he received a Grammy nomination for his 1987 interpretation of the Marvin Gaye classic, "What's Goin' On."

The result of this musical summit is a contemporary jazz masterwork. Avoiding the indulgent improvisations that marr some modern jazz recordings, Doc plays memorable melodic passages over insinuating grooves. It's a considerate approach that makes Laid Back a richly satisfying listening experience.
