Diverse trip hop lounge world jazz… did I say diverse? Oh my gosh is this album diverse. The common theme is laid-back background music, but otherwise all bets are off. Just listen to the three picks I have selected this week and decide for yourself…
1000 and 1 Nights delivers as its name promises. Friends of Diablo II might get reminded on its Desert theme. Others can simply enjoy the ride to an oasis of their choice.
Coal Train is an extremely well produced bass-piano-drum-jazz-piece. And when you think you have heard everything, a saxophone solo begins, and background ornamentation blows off the roof. 5 stars, no less.
Three 4 Ten gets a special mention for its excellent saxophone track.
