Being an avid fan of Gilles Peterson's brilliant Worldwide show on Radio 1, it was back in 1999 when I first got a taster of things to come from the Cinematic Orchestra, with their debut single 'Channel 1 Suite', which was also taken from their unique debut album 'Motion'. Following the Orchestra's every move carefully from then on, I was excited when I heard that in 2002 they were to release their second LP 'Everyday'. Having not heard a single track from the album before buying it, I fell in love with it after the very first listen. It was clear to see that the Cinematic Orchestra had matured and progressed musically, and that 'Everyday' was going to be a current day jazz masterpiece! Without a single bad, or slightly out of place track on the LP, 'Everyday' just kept on sounding better and better with every play. From the opening track entitled 'All That You Give' which features legendary jazz singer Fontella Bass, to the quite simply brilliant 'All Things To All Men' with Roots Manuva on vocals, the Cinematic Orchestra have crafted a brand new form of jazz that can placed with the many others that sit proudly with that specific genre! Most of all, it is their sound!! Whether it be dinner jazz, latin jazz or acid jazz that you are a fan of, take time out to listen to 'Everday' and prepare to be amazed. Pure jazz genius!!!
