Elixir

EW's GRADE
C+

Details Lead Performance: Fourplay; Genre: Jazz

When it comes to ''white wine'' jazz, there are worse offenders than this quartet featuring guitarist Lee Ritenour and keyboardist Bob James. Stocked with cameos from Phil Collins, Patti Austin, and Peabo Bryson, Elixir is Fourplay's most marketable disc yet, full of R&B fodder. When it goes down this easy, is it art — or even jazz?
