any recording of the rippingtons, david benoit, russ freeman, fourplay

basically, anything on the GRP label

as for R&B...I have Toni Braxton's 1st 2 cds, and I think they sound great.

The Rippingtons "live in la" is 1 of my "showoff" cds for the car. They are probably my favorite contemporary jazz group.

I usually listen Gangsta rap, like Mac 10, 50 Cent, WC, or even some softer stuff like Kanye West, Nellys, Da hol Nine, or lil Flip, but latley, I have been checking out some Smooth Jazz too...

One day, while tired of everything on the radio and flipping channles, I stumpled on a Smooth Jazz station... I was kinda diggin it.. I have been listening to it a lot off and on...

Since I'm new to it, I don't really know who all the big players or most popular artists are, I'm looking around and checking them out...

I mostly like the stuff with the sax, drums, cymbols and a bit of piano... Not really into the Vocals or not much atleast...

I'm kinda liking it, because its different, sounds good and is relaxing or kinda soothing, if that makes sense...

If you're into the smooth stuff, you might also like some of the older jazz. My personal favorite is Cannonball Adderley Mercy, Mercy, Mercy!

Also check out some latin.

Arturo Sandoval - Hot House

Arturo Sandoval - The Latin Train

some of the latin stuff even has a lotta bass on it.

Chuck Loeb: 'Mediterrian"

Lenny Kravitz: "5"

Both of these albums are incredable, Chuck Loeb's "Mediterrian", which is the title track of the cd was used on one of IASCA's comp test cd's, that's how I was turned on to it and when I bought the cd, I was highly amazed at the entire cd.... //content.invisioncic.com/y282845/emoticons/biggrin.gif.d71a5d36fcbab170f2364c9f2e3946cb.gif//content.invisioncic.com/y282845/emoticons/biggrin.gif.d71a5d36fcbab170f2364c9f2e3946cb.gif//content.invisioncic.com/y282845/emoticons/biggrin.gif.d71a5d36fcbab170f2364c9f2e3946cb.gif

Yeah tapping off the 4 gauge is typically fine. However, you need to fuse the smaller wire right by the 4 gauge at 1 amp (or whatever the small wire used is rated for) to minimize the risk of fire...
