Smooth Jazz is a radio format (and for some, a subgenre) of jazz and easy music that became dominant in the mid-1970s and early 1990s. Smooth rhythms and melodies are ideal for relaxing or working. It originally grew out of jazz fusion and was heavily influenced by rhythm and blues, funk, rock and pop. While the word "jazz" is used in the term itself, musically the genre does not have much in common with traditional jazz music, instead focusing more on soft pop and rnb music.
