Wow... VERY impressive work

"WowI'm having a hard time believing the copyright of this CD. This came out a looong time ahead of it's time. I have it and even now look at the copyright... 1995. Towa Tei was eerily correct because look at the style today - Glucklich compilations, Brazilectro, Ian Pooley, Kyoto Jazz Massive, Jazzanova...I love this CD. It's very creative, very soothing, and has a touch of everything in it. I can understand what the reviewer meant by the CD seeming a bit "all over the place", but I think that was sort of the idea - a broad sense of musical styles which is just, good music. Bebel Gilberto was featured quite often here. If you've seen her live, she has a strong connection with the Japanese side of the "new" bossa nova movement, and you can tell that even further in her album Tanto Tempo. What's interesting in this cd is Towa Tei's interpretation of "Batucada". Upbeat, higher pitch and neat - especially if you compare it to the way Bebel Gilberto sang it on the Soundtrack to "Next Stop Wonderland". That version was highly acoustic, and a little lower keyed. I definitely recommend this cd. It's perfect in my collection, and I listen to it all the time. It's very cool. If you're a fan of Kyoto Jazz Massive, Wei Chi or any of the sounds coming out of Japan (I'm not exactly sure if Wei Chi comes hails Japan) you'll probably enjoy this. Actually, if you're a fan of the "Bossa Tres Jazz" series, you'll REALLY enjoy this. I first heard Technova on the "Boss-A-Troniq" compilation a little over a year ago. I'd recommend that compilation to anyone interested in finding similar sounds - that track has Nicola Conte, Stereo Action Unlimited, EBTG and even Groove Armada on it."
