CD Reviews

Wonderful hip-hop Jazzy grooves
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I am a Jazz fan who can appreciate laid back and groove oriented jazz such as John Scofield and also electronic music such as Future Sound of London. These tracks are somewhat simplistic by mainstream jazz standards, and probably not agreeable to hard core jazz enthusiasts. This music is not, however, nearly as simplistic as run of the mill techno or hip hop music whose influences are felt on many selections here. This music will challenge you if you have never appreciated Jazz and will be an addictive source of upbeat grooves if you do. One of the things that makes this album so excellent is its variety of tracks - i encourage the prospective buyer to listen to all of the availble clips. This one's a definite keeper."
Great collection of Modern Acid Jazz
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This has a good mixture of house type music with Jazz phrasing and instruments. It is more techno than earlier stuff, emphasizing less vocals and more the beat. You could dance to most of the tunes, but they are fairly mellow; they dont bash your head open or bore you. I use this album as background music while I do boring repetitive work, to keep me engergized. I have used it so much that it now skips. Excellent bass lines and funky rhythms."

"I think this is a fantastic disc, and the variety is probably why I like it as much as I do. It is more upbeat than "after hours", so it plays nicely off of that title. I admit that of the series I like after hours the best, excellent for relaxed evening contemplations. I would recommend this disc to anyone looking for upbeat, fun music."
