July 16 ,2021

Last Friday July 16th, Award winning veteran guitarist, songwriter, band leader, producer, entrepreneur Tim Bowman will release Smooth Vibes, Vol. 1 on his I.M. Records label distributed by Purpose Jazz/Eone. Smooth Vibes, Vol. 1 is a 10 song collection of many of Tim’s favorite songs that were in his music vaults, all written by Tim.

Smooth Vibes, Vol. 1 is an intimate project which emphasizes the intricacy of Tim’s guitar playing as well as his composition skills all totally curated by Tim.

“Smooth Vibes, Vol. 1 is full of many highlights from the melodic groove of the first song “Table for Two” to the beautiful bluesy love song “For You My Love” and including the songs with special guests “Yes, No and Yes” featuring the smooth vocals on Tim’s long time friend Howard Smith and “The Gift” which features jazz great Kirk Whalum on saxophone. This project is perfect for any smooth, relaxing and meditative playlist. In these times sometimes we have to force ourselves to take a step back and relax whether at home, dining or taking a long drive on the road. “Smooth Vibes” helps us get there.

“Smooth Vibes, Vol. 1” follows Tim’s 5th number 1 Billboard Jazz single “Fireball” and is his first full length since 2017’s “Into The Blue” whose combined songs have over 3 million streams to date.
