Just turn on Smooth Jazz Now any time of the day and you will hear the love for Chieli Minucci. His “Blue Lagoon” is #1 for a second straight week. “One of the most played artists, from the beginning of this station, is Chieli,” says John Beaudin Operations Manager of all the Jazz stations on the AirCom Radio Network. “No one in this format can create melodies and guitar riffs like him,” adds Beaudin.

Only one new song entered the chart this week David Pack’s “Everytime I Look at You” featuring Larry Carlton coming in at # 25.
