Product Description

Product Description

9 Lazy 9 joined Ninja Tune when Ninja Tune was just one grey metal cupboard in a run down London loft. Operating out of Italy in 1992 they soon gained respect for their ground cracking first album "Paradise Blown". Their sound, distinctively more sun than North Sea, is a smoky Mediterranean mix of vines and good times. Keir Fraserello and Giacomo Braddellini have been making music for many years in different guises before combining forces in Rome in the early nineties. They have been working with some of Italy's finest musicians on their latest album, "Sweet Jones", recorded in the Umbrian Hills near Orvietto. Gianluca Petrella plays trombone, Mishael Levron guitar; Manu Bandettini plays flute with Adriano Tirelli on bassoon. The combined force brings you one of the freshest records to come out of Italy for some time.

Review

I like this record a lot. It is much in Funki Porcini (he is half of 9 Lazy 9) Ninja style of those days, lots of live instruments (James Braddell and Keir Fraser hired whole band for the sessions), sometimes disharmonic, diverse tempos, a great deal of sunny Italy-soaked temper, no boring cuts and very moody. On several cuts like Pound Stretcher or Big Six the music sails to dream-like ambient waters which leaves the listener contemplating. Out of three classic 9 Lazy 9 albums to me Sweet Jones is number one. Wonderful album.

2 of 7 people found the following review helpful By ICH BIN EIN NAUGHTY BOY on 7 Oct. 2003
Format: Audio CD
I'm just getting into this - you know listens 6, 7, 8, 9 and so on; so what I'm doing reviewing it so early I don't know!
I like it.
It's different, interesting (which is a must among the sea of banality out there) and musically accomplished and diverse.
I am currently lovin lovin lovin Ninja's rostrum of talent; with the Cinematic Orchestra sitting high above most others. They rock in a huge way.
This, though, is very good. It's growing on me more and more; and that's good cos I can be fickle and demanding when it comes to my music. It's gotta be atmosphere's deep to last - this is.
I reckon if I hadn't been an idiot and reviewed it too early, it might be a FIVE...

a good ride 30 Jan. 2005
By Jennifer M. McAdam - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I would agree with the past customer in saying this is a different kind of album for 9 lazy 9. And that is what makes it so great. It is an album that I can listen to over and over and always find new things. I can work to it, drive to it, wake up to it, fall to sleep to it. When I can find something like that to have in my life I really respect an artist. So I say enjoy the ride and give it a listen.
9 Lazy 9 - Sweet Jones 28 Feb. 2011
By scoundrel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
9 Lazy 9, an early and groundbreaking part of the Ninja Tune stable, return after a long absence with SWEET JONES, an reprise of their downtempo-dub-jazz fusion. And they start off in fine worm, with the gentle freeform of "The Woodworm." "Poundstretcher" goes a more mysterious route and "Cosa" follows there soon after. "Keep Going Daddy" injects of the more rhythmic sensibilities that Funki Porcini had in his solo work, but for the most part, the tempo is kept more on the "down" side, as with the groovy "Carborante." In the years between their first releases, the entire lounge-downtempo-future-jazz scene has blown up, sometimes with great results, and sometimes with mediocre results. Though the world hasn't completely left 9 Lazy 9 behind, they're no longer the innovators they once were. That's a minor complaint, however, when they can still produce high-quality music, like the gorgeous "The Last of the West," which switches from major to minor keys with simple grace. Let's hope it's not the last of 9 Lazy 9.
Drool-inducing amazingness 26 July 2013
By R. Mutt - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
9 Lazy 9 made this album specifically to lull addicts of other musical genres into a sense of false security before hooking them on the narcotically eloquent beauty of its intricate musical layers. And there are layers upon layers of ambient tones, horns, beats (oh man, the BEATS), keys, and hints of everything in-between. You can listen to it a hundred times and never hear the same album. Can you dig that? If so, buy now, and upgrade your headphones. Prepare to drop a few bad habits as well, because there just isn't going to be enough room for them all once you get hooked on this.

A disappointment 25 Aug. 2004
By James Davidson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
A very ambient album. Nowhere near as groovy or acid-jazzy as their other work (which I really dig). A good album to put on if you want to fall asleep.
