Smooth jazz radio top thirty most played for the seven days ending October 16, 2006. Well, it had to happen sometime and Peter White, whose ‘What Does It Take (To Win Your Love)’ had previously clocked up 17 consecutive weeks as most played on smooth jazz radio, has been deposed. He is down two at 3 and the new number one is ‘Free As the Wind’ by Paul Hardcastle’s The Jazzmasters. Ironically, before Whites record breaking stay at the top, it was Hardcastle himself who had previously enjoyed that accolade. Back in 1995 he was at the top for fifteen consecutive weeks. ‘The Total Experience’ from Boney James and George Duke climbs one to 2 and ‘Morning’ by George Benson with Al Jarreau is strong at 5. ‘The Heart Of The Matter’ from India Arie’s latest CD ‘Testimony: Vol. 1, Life & Relationship’ is upwardly mobile at 14 while Rippingtons founder member Gregg Karukas powers on to 18 with ‘Lady In The Red Dress’.
