Also sometimes known as cool jazz or light jazz, smooth jazz is the most popular name for a sub-genre characterized by insistent rhythmic patterns, especially lighter disco and Latin dance beats, and the use of synthesizers and sophisticated production techniques. Smooth jazz sells more recordings than any other type of jazz. Well-known artists include saxophonists Kenny G and David Sanborn, guitarist George Benson, and vocalist Sade.
