4.0 out of 5 stars Audio moods for your listening pleasure 10 Jan 2004
Format:Audio CD
Could almost be a concept album, in that it could be a soundtrack from a 60's / 70's kitch French/Italian romantic mafia, arthouse film(Is that possible?). And it works.
Conceived in London, stylishly designed in Italy, not sure where it was actually recorded, it doesn't matter because it conjures up
a European jazzy lounge club ambience. Relying predominatly on the funky organ & moog melodies, they nestle cosily alongside the earthy bass interspersed with acoustic guitar & gentle vocals on a background of percussion, conga's, vibraphone & drums.
In places not dissimilar to Gotan project in vibe and mood, only the beats sound more organic and Gotan sound so much more French!
If you like your music to be a constant companion to your life then this has a place to assist in the enjoyment of it. Imagine if you will......a flickering neon sign...inside...the fantasy club scene that only ever existed in your mind. Dreamy days, driving top down, your lovers head scarf fluttering in the breeze as the ocean view comes into sight. This is a selection of audio moods for your listening pleasure.
I'd actually give this three & a half stars only because I have so many other albums that get alot more attention, but this is a worthy piece of music to add that extra va va voom when ever you feel the occasion.

5.0 out of 5 stars A year for great music continues...... 9 May 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is an excellent piece of music that conjures up various styles of music. At times it can be quite funky/swingy such as "Intraspetto" which has some nice accompanying vocals and earthy such as the initial track "In Spring". It is nice to see lounge artists putting to good effect more traditional instruments with the more modern electronic sounds. I am always rendered slightly weak at the knees when I hear vibes and this has some nice vibes interspersed throughout.
The female vocalists are more understated than putting their presence into any one track but it works to great effect. Having this along with Koop's Waltz for Koop in your CD player would certainly make for a very relaxing evening. Just what the doctor ordered.
There are even shades of Cal Tjaeder in some of the vibe sounds such as on Pousada do Amor. Rosalia de Souza provides just the right vocal balance on Vista do Mar and again the music is just pure swingy, vibey and earthy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Les Hommes - buy this album! 22 Mar 2002
Format:Audio CD
This album conjures up the atmosphere of a Cuban lounge bar in full swing and could be the soundtrack to a film... Les Hommes are an atmospheric and passionate blend - they mix an eclectic mix of traditional jazz instruments to create something very moody and new, and a sound that is far greater than the sum of its parts. Vocals are superb. This unique album is not a hit from the off but is a 'grower' as well - a must-have for any serious musophile's collection'!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Lounge & Jazz Soundtrack 19 Mar 2007
By bordersj2 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Les Hommes are three guys from London (and a few singers) known for putting together jazzed up tracks heavy in organ and with surprising funk. They're on the Schema label, and have two releases that I'm aware of - this one, which was also released in the USA thanks to Thievery Corporation's "ESL" label. And they had an EP titled "The Mood is Modal", which is as loungish as they come.

I really like this album. Granted, it's over 5 years old, but that's the beauty of using live instruments IMO - the music ages much more gracefully. As the goal for the album was for it to be organized like a soundtrack, there are themes here for classic American, Italian, and international films (Black Orpheus, Audrey Hepburn, etc.) The album starts out well before Intraspettro chimes in with a neat bossa and Rosalia De Souza's un-paralleled dancing vocals. A bit darker is 'Weegee', with a consistent guitar rift. But one of the more popular tracks, 'Pousada Do Amor' follows with Les Hommes trademark organ sound and keys with neat precussion. Supposedly, this one's about running with the Bulls in Pamplona during a thunder storm. I think my favorite song off of this all too short album thoush is "Vista Do Mar". Quiet, easy and gentle with great little samples in it and a strong xylophone that compliments the organ. I think that song was even featured in a movie in real life. But not to be forgotten is "Hommage", featuring Rosalia on vocals again.

I do like this album and still listen to it - as I am now. It's very laid back and good to hear in the background or if you have friends over & feel like talking about old movies & spy flicks (as I like to do!). But mind you, this album won't be for everyone as I'm not sure everyone wil fall for the organ sound. So I recommend hearing a few of their songs on miscellaneous compilations first, like "Jazz Lounge" or "Nueva Bossa Nova". They haven't made another album that I'm aware of, which is a shame because they had a good approach and this one was on the short side (I think approaching 41 minutes). But if you like this, you may also like music by Jaffa and maybe Mo Horizons.
