Those links were to the release info - not audio clips unfortunately.
You said the stuff you liked was sort of chillout/smooth jazz. The Mushroom Jazz comps personify that exactly. Don't be misled by stuff you hear when you google Mark Farina - most of that will be is clubby stuff which is nothing like the comps I mention which helped make him famous.
