Biography

In 2014, all roads lead to Brazil. As the World Cup draws near, the not-so-sleeping giant of South America will move to centre-stage, and its irresistible rhythms will become the soundtrack of the summer. Cheesy compilations will line up to cash in, peddling worn-out clichés of girls from Ipanema. But for those who want the real musical flavour of Brazil - its super-dynamic present and ...

The phenomenon of Acid Jazz may have come and gone, but the aesthetic lives on: stylish, funky, and, above all else, "smoove". Talkin' Loud label head, club and radio DJ Gilles Peterson knows the aesthetic well, having released albums from the likes of Incognito, Galliano, Fela Kuti and Roni Size, and on his contribution to the INCredible series, he extends the sound even more. From Funkadelic (whose "Free Your mind and Your Ass Will Follow" kicks off the first disc) to DJ Vadim (whose "Your Revolution" is the penultimate track on disc two), the acid jazz-tag is pushed, pulled, stretched and torn: Peterson uncannily mixes Jimmy Smith into A Tribe Called Quest into Luiz Arruda Perez; Pharoah Sanders into Soul Dhamma; and the Isley Brothers into Minnie Riperton into the Handsome Boy Modeling School (which itself mixes longtime De La Soul producer Prince Paul with Moloko's Roison). Recommended? No question. --Randy Silver

I would part with a lot of money to buy this CD again. Everytime I listen, it just gets better and better. On the first CD, the Nu Yorican Soul track is absolutely amazing. With it 4 Hero have reworked the original Masters at Work version to give it a harder edge (both versions are brilliant). On the second CD, Ohio by the Isley Brothers is simply a record that you have play as loud as possible. Buy it!

I've been listening to some of thes tunes for over 2o years. Freddie Hubbard's "Little Sunflower" with Al Jarreau on vocal, fantastic. New to me was "I see" vocal by M.J Cole, absolutely awesome, is this track big? It should be. Will be! Then the remake of Al Hudsons "Spread love" I've not stopped rockin' since I bought it. After playing this CD to a friend she summed it up in one word COOL.

this was the first GP album I bought years ago but just the other day it was re-recommended to me by amazon when buying another item and it prompted me to go back and listen to it again after a couple of years in a stack not unpacked since my last move. It is quite simply one of the finest selection of tunes I've ever heared assembled together. Shame it is harder to find now, but if at all possible buy it, get some friends around when the sun is shining, pour something cold, open the doors, turn up the stereo and I kid thee not a good time will ensue. Glorioius tunes back to back from the tragic Ohio to the simply pant swinging Nuthern but Thunderin (or however the hell it is spelt). wonderful album through and through.

Great selection of eclectic and better known beats by that arbiter of all that is brazilian GP. Some clever mixing of new style music and older beats and a number of jazz tracks, which, with the music selected, would be tricky to pull off. GP succeeds, with most blended with expertise and aplomb. This is another reason what makes it a stand out CD; highly recommended. I'd give it 4.5 stars.

Update - I've been listening to this lately and I agree with one of the other reviewers here who said it gets better each time they hear it. I've revised my initial rating of 4.5 stars to 5. It's fantastic and I suspect GP's finest hour...........I heard him doing a set on a pod cast in Brazil and he did a mix of the Nu Yorican soul track with the one he mixed it with here..........it's almost like a hankering for a former glory, demonstrated on here........the CD is pricey though a lot of the time.....maybe this one is worth the 3 - 4 times normal CD price............maybe this is off the normal scale........priceless

I bought the album following some links on Amazon, knowing a few of the tracks, but the whole CD is a great experience. The latin funky stuff combined with the very good mixes of Incognito and NuYorican soul make it for me. And the very cool start of the first CD takes me back a bit.. :-)
