It is perhaps George Benson that Smith’s style is closest to. Hear the Benson-esque flourishes on tracks like “Brighter Day,” “Me Time” and “On It,” while for different vibes try the big “Brazilian Dancer” (the set’s obvious Latin cut), the loping and lazy “Cool Breeze,” or the slower groove of “Say Again.” Ronny does not just do smooth though; you want funk? Then try the tough and bassy opener “Breaded Funk Well Done” or the sparse cover of Bill Withers’ “Use Me.” The final track is a faithful instrumental take on Leon Russell’s wistful “Superstar.”
