Mesmiring Smooth Jazz With Live Rhythms
(4 out of 5 stars)
"When I first decided to buy an "THIS IS ACID JAZZ" compilation album, I didn't know what to think. I mean I own all 4 Jamiroquai albums, 4 Incognito albums & "Shelter" by Brand New Heavies. When I popped this in, my first reaction was "After hours is right! This is way too slow." But when the songs rolled along it was more like "This has some chilled-out rhythms on it." Memorable tracks include Yada Yada's "Summer's End," which ironically is more "Afternoon" rather than "After Hours", and the most optimistic, upbeat track. Jimpster's "Playtime" was pretty smooth, Marschmellow's "Waterfront" had a hypnotizing foreign tinge to it, and 9 Lazy 9's "Electric Lazyland" was off the hook (shades of southern african american hip hop). Although, I still can't grasp the essence of this acid jazz genre, "4" persuaded me that it's pretty good. Get it if you're an acid jazz fan or if you just like smooth jazz sounding music with nice beats/rhythms."
