A fantastically programmed cd. In hindsight to see what the Hed Kandi label is turning into - mass market mix albums and ever elabourate covers, Nu Cool is a subtle reminder of a label in its infancy.
There is such a quality to the track programming and selection, this album feels like an education in itself.
With the quality of perhaps more well known artists like Jamiroquai ,Erykah Badu and Nuyorican Soul drawing initial investigation.Other highlights include The Quiet Boys reworking of Roy Ayres Everybody Loves The Sunshine and Hit the Boom's uplifting and happy Here Comes The Sun.
Disc 1 is slightly more uptempo than disc 2 but the balance is perfect.
In summary, if you want a wonderfuly satisfying palette of quality proper R & B and Jazz funk which is especially good on a lazy afternoon,buy this Cd because its sure to become a rarity.
The Nu Cool brand of the Hed Kandi was reprised soon after label founder Mark Doyle parted company. A welcome return, but still poor by comparison to volume 1.
