CD Reviews

Great Jazz from the French master
Ben | Sydney, Australia | 08/25/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Compared to Tourist, this debut from the french jazz prodigy is a little more down tempo, and his house music influences (so obvious in tourist) are not as instantly recognisable. While the album does have some great jazzy tracks, i wouldn't recommend it to a house fan, as i would with tourist. If, however, you like funky, modern jazz, then this is albumis defintiely where it's at. Track 5 is a standout, the combination of bass, bugle and synths oozes class. This is the perfect Cd for cafes etc, its cool, its calm and its very cruisy. But, then again, its not tourist. But tourist, if you really like the jazzy, down tempo tracks, then this should definitely be your next purchase."
When house meets jazz
studio_73 | 09/07/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"St Germain composes real jazz and real house at the same time. If you liked Tourist and you need more St Germain, this is the record you're looking for. "What's new?" is possibly one of the best tracks ever made by St Germain. Fresh record, get it."
Jazz Without the Chaos
Kevin Barrack | San Mateo, CA USA | 01/02/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This disc is the jazz I've been looking for my entire life. It is very smooth and groovy, without all the staccato tweaking so common with classic jazz. The music is also not formulaic or bland. The electronic piano sounds great, but the electronic sound is not overdone. Overall, the music is carefully crafted and restrained in it's execution. This is no ego trip.Several of the songs are longer than 10 minutes, making this a very lengthy cd, and a great value."
