Background: The aptly-named Cinematic Orchestra (TCO) were formed by J. Swinscoe back in 1999. At the time Jay was still an employee at Ninja Tune in South London, where he was responsible for export sales at the long-standing independent record label. Swinscoe arrived at London Bridge from Scotland via Yorkshire and Cardiff with a background playing bass and guitar in bands and DJing, as well ... Read more in Amazon's Cinematic Orchestra Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Musical Nirvana! 3 April 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
By the time I finished my first listen of this album, my face muscles were exhausted due to the constant grining, yes "Man With A Movie Camera" is one of those albums that will leave you so utterly flabbergasted you'll need a a bottle of water for every listen! From the soothing transitions of "Reel Life (Evolution II)" to the haunting "All Things To All Men", the album is designed with precision, to take your breath away.
Its epic presentation is what makes each listen so amazing. The instruments blend in a beautifully flowing and seamless manner with laid back yet powerful soulful beats. Whether you're into jazz or not, Cinematic Orchestra have pulled off something thats universal to anyone who appreciates good music. Listen to it now and be amazed over and over again!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning. If you want goosebumps... sign here! 16 July 2003
By Holly
Format:Audio CD
I was lucky enough to see the live performance in Manchester last month, and I've got to say that it was one of the best gigs I've ever seen. What's even better is that the quality of the live music is just as strong as that on the CD! An amazing group of musicians and creatives who deserve a good hard pat on the back. If you want the hairs on the back of your neck to stand on end, order it now. Cleverly composed jazz/funk blends, string swells to bring a tear to your eye, sparing complimenting samples and sounds, the best tenner I've ever parted with! Add it to your basket and your ears will love you forever! :0)

5.0 out of 5 stars BRILLIANT!!! 6 Jun 2003
By Jack
Format:Audio CD
Wow, what can I say? This is simply gorgeous music. Having not ever been a great fan of jazz, I was increedibely impressed by this. I own their first two albums (both growers, and both excellent) and went along to see them live, as recommended by Gilles Peterson. They projected the film of the title (1920s Russian silent movie) onto a screen and then played the soundtrack live. It was, in a word, awesome. Upbeat and mellow in equal measures, and these guys can play their instruments!
The album features other versions of their older tracks, plus some new ones and a lot of incidental music. Definitely also worth buying the DVD for the full aural/visual experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Slick and evocative trip-hop 18 Oct 2011
Format:Audio CD
A brilliant purchase - having seen the Cinematic Orchestra live years ago, I'd somehow managed to overlook this superb CD. Since it's their best record in my (recently updated) opinion, I feel pretty daft.

Smooth modern jazz influences combined with trip-hop textures, the Man With The Movie Camera is an excellent album, and I'd recommend it to anyone - particularly fans of jazz, Portishead, early Goldfrapp or Sneaker Pimps.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jazz is dead! Long live the new Jazz! 20 July 2003
Format:Audio CD
Unlike anything I've heard for years: has a the technical jazz grounding of musicians like Tommy Smith ("Spartacus", etc.), the spontaneity and originality of Chris Bowden, and the modern feel of some work by Jazzanova and others.
Cool, breezy, flowing, rhythm, beats, intense, liquid, syncopated. You'll find your self being drawn in and carried away within moments. Mixtures of steady and gentle rhythms with fiery and powerful top-lines; careful and solid construction; originality and drive. Whether you like jazz, like lounge, like beats; want to dance, want to chill; and fan of real music will be all over this.
I have recommended this album to everyone I know - my friends, my colleagues, random people in record stores, my mother(!). You will want to play this over and over again, louder and louder, blast it from the top of your building. It could be the new Jazz.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blissful 6 Jun 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Anyone who enjoyed Swinscoe et al's sublime EVERY DAY will find this a marvellous companion piece, not just because of the early versions of some of that album's stand-out tracks. This is music to get lost in & come back to time & again: constantly shifting, surprising & transporting. Are the Cinematics the most interesting band working today? Discuss . . .

5.0 out of 5 stars What an album! 27 Feb 2009
Format:Audio CD
This album from start to finish is fantastic. I brought the vinyl version as well which has a slightly different mix to some of the songs which add a different dimension. So if you like this go buy it. The album itself fuses effortlessly Jazz and classical music which is very easy to listen to. You'll find yourself tapping away throughout it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb 23 Aug 2003
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Cinematic Orchestra quite simply put make this world seem to be a much better place than it often is through their music. Simple honesty, beauty, sincerity, strength - this music transcends words. As Claude Debussy said in early 20th century: 'Music is the space between the notes'. Cinematics have mastered this. Music and art collide.
