What is westcoast music, AOR or Yacht Rock ? This music sending up the smooth likes of the Doobie Brothers, Hall & Oates, Steely Dan, Michael Mc Donald and Christopher Cross. The term has only gained strength, coming to describe a whole smooth aesthetic that existed roughly from 1975 to 1982, expanding far beyond the white soft-rockers of LA and encompassing smooth jazz and "Yacht Soul."The music ushers in that familiar feeling of sipping cool rum drinks in the middle of the summer, and not needing to take life so seriously. It serves as proof of the cyclical nature of most music trends and how the good stuff always seems to stick around. This year is drawing to end and my musical podcast serie "The Border" brought you all year long some new artist or new westcoast singles. I hope you will appreciate this 2 parts "The Border Best Of Special Westcoast Sessions 2018" including my selection of the best westcoast songs of the year. Every different style of westcoast music is represented, from jazz, to soul, pop, disco, blues, folk, or country, the smoothest and softest side, until the grooviest one.
