Synopsis

Album Description
Soel is Pascal Ohse, trumpeter extraordinaire for Ludovic Navarre of St Germain fame, and Memento is the St Germain - produced debut album for this contemporary jazz genre-buster. Mixing jazz, funk, soul, hip hop, house, dub, electro and a world vibe, all influenced by '70s film noir, Memento offers chill-out sensuality in a time of sound and fury for the legions of fans who took St Germain's landmark album Boulevard to #1 Con- temporary Jazz and Tourist to the Top 20.

CD Reviews

"produced by st. germain" caught my eye...
R. Davis | louisville, ky | 03/01/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"first off, this isnt 'genre-busting'... i dont know where i'd go to classify this, but it's earthy, full and rich... very layered and has a lovingly nappy texture. organic.

if i still believed in 'neo-soul' then i'd say that this would either be 'the origin of it' or the 'elevation' to it... guess that jus makes it 'soulful'... not as 'jazz heavy' as what you might expect coming from the st. germaine camp...
ummmmm, soel's album is comparable to archie shepp's 'attica blues'... contemporary to groups such as fertile ground, the pharaohs (extinct early 70's souljazz group/the roots of earth, wind and fire), gil scott-heron, alice coltrane...
or imagine if cinematic orchestra, roy ayers, isaac hayes , george clinton and fela kuti all came together to create an album...

...yeah, that might define it for me...

i buy 5 to 8 cds a month, at least, and this will go down as one of my top ten purchases for 2005... a great weekend album to lounge around with cultured friends.

peace yall,
dirtyboy.

This album involves various styles, but most of the tracks are a blend of 70s-everything. Tracks 3 and 5 are perfect for intimate moments with another human being. Highly emotional atmospheres!"
