Hefner--aka Lee Jones--started out in music by creating soundtracks for the movies of his fellow film students (he didn't actually like the course himself). It's partly this cinematic approach that lends Residue a wholly insouciant appeal, but that's not the whole story. Between these filmic moments, Jones also conjures up weightless echoes of black music styles like soul and funk and constructs organic sounding beatscapes to underpin the whole. While retaining enough of an urban feel to appeal to the dance brigade, this album also reaches out to a wider mainstream audience with it's elegiac strings and sophisticated jazz undertones. The whole is topped off with the vocals of chanteuse Josee, who manages to sing in exactly the soft, ethereal tones that the music demands. If ever there was a convincing case for the freeform experience, this is it--step into Hefner's world and let the residue of your mind simply drift away. --Paul Sullivan

Remarkable! Hefner has done it again! Using nothing more than a kazoo and the harpsicord setting on his casio keyboard, Lee Jones has crafted a dozen slices of expensive sonic massage - can you afford it though? Do you have a 'gold' card with a 100% jazz limit or is your music taste overdrawn? If it's the latter, take out a loan - a high-interest jazz loan, that is! Listening to Residue is a little like taking a summer break in Penzance, and a lot like sitting on your carpeted bowl waiting to drop the kids off on a weekend morning. This is the perfect long-player for Hugh Hefner himself to listen to as he gets his vinegar strokes up at Playboy Towers - it's quite simply more epic than one million bibles. If this doesn't sell like hot cakes on a cold day, aural justice has come up with the WRONG verdict.

this has to be one of the best new soul/downbeat records of the year, especially the track Level Green and Every Day.The Hefner of "We love cities" is a different one - I know cause I bought it by accident the other day.If you Like "Residue" you certainly wont like the other Hefner.

When I first searched for this item on Amazon last week, I was confused between this Hefner and the Rock/Indie alter-ego. Well, hopefully I can help other potential buyers - this really is a gem of an album. I am never easily impressed and this has all the hallmarks of an undiscovered classic. Lee Jones, already an accomplished remixer lays down tracks oozing melody and rhythm. Strings, tight organic instrumentation and beautiful heart-felt vocal tracks throughout. I always like music that is not instantly accessible and takes listens before you fully appreciate it but this album is a first time joy. If you like Rae&Christian, Bent, Zero 7 then this is cert! I hope I have helped clarify any confusion with the lesser Hefner rockers out there!!!!

At long last Hefner's first album... and what a fiendish treat it is!
About as slick as they come and with some brilliant production (check out the sublime ending to Track 8, 'Every Day'), the album creates a cohesive landscape of sound and surprises. The music has a ring of familiarity - whilst remaining quite original - that effortlessly mixes dozens of sounds, styles and attitudes, creating the impression of not one but several albums playing simultaneously.
My only criticism is that the vocals are occasionally unintelligible.
Forget all this nonsense about who is the 'true-Hefner': instead just go out and buy this album now.

Just to let everybody know, these aren't the whiny indie band with the same name(!). Thank god. Even better than that, this guy is an incredibly talented producer. This is an album of lush chilled breakbeat. I suppose the closest thing to it would be Tosca or Ronny Jordan's first album. Except this has a fair couple of vocal tracks. Even a couple of the "non-vocal" tracks have voice samples dubbed into them. You know the drill. Hip-Hop, Breaks, Jazz and a bit of Dub. If you like Massive Attack, Portishead etc. and fancy something a bit less "dark" or a bit more chilled, get this. -- OJH

Stand out tracks are 'An Evening with Hefner' and 'Dive into You', which, particularly with the latter's great vocal, are glittering, sublime pieces of jazzfunksoul. But it doesn't repeat such greatness often enough. I think that what was a striving for subtlety and sophistication in its making too often on record sounds just a touch uninspired, and next to the highs of the album, quite a bit of it is disappointing. I think Hefner felt the influence of expectation (their own expectation), and it has slightly compromised the end result. Worth buying, however, just for those two tracks.

this album is pure class. every track has something going for it, be it lyrics, arrangements, melody, bassline, whatever. Sumptuous strings on varying tracks are augmented by the gorgeous voice of their singer. There is not a thing wrong with this album.

This "Hefner" is not the same group as the Hefner who released "The Fidelity Wars" and "Breaking God's Heart"
