CD Reviews

Classic Jazzanova mix
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Jazzanova is a production team out of Germany that has been making incredible music for some time. Combining influences from 60's & 70's eastern european jazz (ie. MPS/Saba labels )and modern electronic beat architecture, their productions are often beautifully complex numbers that are simply uncategorizable neo-modern dance jazz tunes. With this CD, Jazzanova essentially takes the listener on a journey through 4 "circles" of music by different artists. Each circle is meant to represent a separate style or soundscape. For instance, the first circle contains breezy "world jazz" songs primarily from the 70's while the second circle includes modern tracks that you might hear in today's clubs. Needless to say, the song selection is impeccable and the CD goes smoothly from lighthearted jazzy vocals to house beats to a deeper, moody down-tempo experience. This CD is a must for listeners who enjoy a wide variety of excellent music from all corners of the globe. In fact, all of the Phonophile releases are excellent and of a similar vein of musical styling. Please check it out -- you won't be disappointed."
A stellar batch of 21st Century grooves...
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Very cool compilation series that has some of the world's best DJs selecting classic groovers from the back catalog of smaller Polygram labels -- like MPS, Brownswood, and Talking Loud. This volume was picked by Jazzanova of Compost Records fame, and it's a stellar batch of 21st Century grooves that brings together tracks from around the world in a swirling mix of music that had us sitting on the edges of our seats throughout the whole thing. The gamut is very wide, but Jazzanova manage to make the whole thing work through a masterful approach to seque. Titles include "Janela De Ouro" by Egberto Gismonti, "Yaad" by The Indian Jazz Trio, "Fedime's Flight" by Jazzanova, "You've Got It Bad Girl" by Quincy Jones, "Tema Teimoso" by Cal Tjader, "Statement" by George Duke, "We Who Are Not As Others" by 4 Hero, and even a great remix of "You're The Best Thing" by the Style Council. 74 minutes long, and a beautiful mix of music that perfectly sums up Brownswood's 21st Century soul approach!
