I bought this album after hearing the single I only have eyes for you on radio six. The track sends shivers down my spine, particularly love listening to it on repeat in the car, weird but true!

The rest of the album is very strong, even though it's not usually my favourite type of music. The melodies are very well thought out and the sound is rich and complex and satisfying.

Felt like an expensive buy, but worth every penny.

I heard this on Giles Petersons 6 Music show a few weeks back and decided to get it straight away. It didn't disappoint at all, and would have gotten 5 stars if it hadn't been recorded with very low levels making it sound unnecessarily lightweight - shame really, just have to turn it up to compensate, which is ok till you forget and play something else! Still well worth it.

Format: Audio CD
The French have every reason to be proud of Django Reinhardt. Jean Cocteau called him "the guitar with the human voice". Anyone can dip into his performances and possibly find something they love.
It is not possible to sample any of Lester Bowie's performances with the same results. Bowie has the same "trumpet with a human voice" style as Louis Armstrong. Let countless angels sing Pops to his rest, by the way. On the other hand, Bowie stood on the gnarly, broken ground of free jazz. He was a member of the Art Ensemble of Chicago, one of the flagships of free jazz. On this CD, it is the paradign of Gate, the model of Dipper, the tone of Louis Armstrong that holds the cards. On Ken Burns' TV series 'Jazz' Bowie told of pointing his horn out an open window when he practiced. He wanted Pops to hear him, a green tinhorn who did not know all his scales, and hire him for his band.
Now, there is such a thing as 'funk' (pronounced as 'fonk' in New Orleans, Louisiana) in this world. Funk propels this band, courtesy of of Bob Stewart's tuba and Phillip Wilson's drums. Presiding over all is an incarnation of Armstrong, a vision in a white lab coat whenever he played for an audience, Lester Bowie. A varied programme of covers and originals is presented. The opening and title track is a revelation, with the band creating a floating groove that inspires Bowie to coax beautiful slurs from his trumpet.
"Think" ends as soon as it starts. "Lament" begins with a series of drones from the horns, then slow paced chords usher in the solo by Stanton Davis. "Coming back, Jamaica" is worthy of special mention. Bowie was interested in the music of Jamaica so he moved there for a few years, putting the career of the Art Ensemble on hold.

The BEST Brass Fantasy release 12 Nov. 2000
By Allan MacInnis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The late Lester Bowie, trumpeter of Art Ensemble of Chicago fame, seemed mostly to use the Brass Fantasy as a vehicle for having fun. Their MO was, as often as not, to turn pop tunes into playful, sometimes irreverent jazz items -- their repetoire included "The Great Pretender," Michael Jackson's "Thriller," and even Andrew Lloyd Webbers' "Music of the Night," all of which were really FUN TO LISTEN TO, even if you hated the originals. There WERE, however, lots of discs where Brass Fantasy members composed, and sometimes they delved into fairly freeish material, in line with Mr. Bowie's other unit. Maybe you know all that. If you're looking for a Brass Fantasy disc, though, and wondering which is good -- BUY THIS ONE. It has the wonderful original, "Coming Back Jamaica," which is a classic of its kind, a goofy reggae/New Orleansy tribal march on quaaludes; most of the other cuts on the disc are Brass Fantasy compositions, too. There IS, however, a terrific sample of just how twisted and delightful Brass Fantasy could make pop material (the title track). As for the originals -- there's abundant exploratory material that would almost fit in nicely on the Art Ensemble's classic, NICE GUYS, but it never gets noisy or unpleasant to listen to; it's richly textured and restrained, smart-to-the-core, and really beautiful at times. All the tracks work REALLY well together, too. A must.

Lester's loving lips linger on his memory of Pops 16 Mar. 2002
By Man from Planet Jazz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Lester Bowie here dons his lab coat to produce some jazz magic. The first track is full of Bowie's trumpet speaking of his love for Louis Armstrong's tone. "Think" is too slight to mention. "Lament" is introduced by 3 minutes of drones, then a beat and singing chord voicings announce a delicate solo by Stanton Davis. "Coming back, Jamaica" is a calypso/reggae tribute to Jamaican music. This is no surprise as Bowie lived there for a while. "Nonet" is rhythm and pure tone, led by the composer's tuba. The last track opens with Bowie's 'trumpet with a human voice' until the arrival of a swinging tempo propels a performance even the Duke himself would have been proud of. Following from the interesting instrumentation of the band and the high quality of the players, this is a sterling effort that signalled the albums that were to come.

I Only have Eyes for You 23 Jan. 2007
By J. MacKay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a fine ablum. 'I Only Have Eyes For You' is unbelievable. I am not someone one who considers himself a Jazz fan, but I love good music that draws me to a different space. The whole album definatly does this.

At Last 27 Dec. 2010
By Johnny Waco - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I first heard the title track of this album from a tape I had made in the middle of the night from an alternative radio station in L.A. sometime in the 1980s. Unfortunately it was on the end of the tape, so I had only two minutes of this wonderful rendition with no idea who had recorded it. All I knew was that it sounded like a quaaluded instrumental version of "I Only Have Eyes For You." I have searched for the past fifteen years for this track with no luck. I sampled nearly all the tracks for this title on iTunes to no avail. Yesterday I decided to resume my search on iTunes before I would try YouTube. Unbelievably, the top track suggested by iTunes was what I had been looking for: over ten minutes in length, a brass recording; I sampled it and voila! it was mine! I downloaded it and now have a beautiful CD recording of this song and the rest of the album. The explanation I received is that the album was originally released in 1985, and musical copyrights last 25 years. So it apparently has been re-registered, allowing iTunes to accept it as a "new" recording.

And now, to move on and sample more Lester Bowie tracks . . .

Great Jazz 22 Mar. 2013
By Robert B. Ames - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I heard about Lester Bowie on my local jazz station one night and thought he was out of this world. I decided to buy this particular CD and I have not regretted my decision in the least. It is very eclectic, different and exhibits superb playing. I would recommend this CD to anyone who says they love jazz.
