4.0 out of 5 stars Album of the year (so far!), 12 July 2004
This review is from: Time Out Of Mind (Audio CD)
This is not the usual Brazilian fare you might expect from this label, and, in my opinion, is the best thing they've ever put out. The killer track is "Roll On" featuring the gorgeous voice of Eska Mtungwazi. If you've heard her on the (far inferior) New Sector Movements albums you need this song in your life. Pure uplifting soul, with killer Rhodes chords & bassline. The rest of the album is damn good too, mixing nu-jazz, bossa & breaks to great effect. Love the 60s-style vocal harmonies too! The only downer is the track with Steve Spacek singing on - what a boring soulless voice! Don't sleep on this - try it, you'll like it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not For Jazz Fans!, 12 July 2004
Jazz (and indeed Blue Note) lovers should tread warily near this. It's pretty poor. Check out the sidemen. Never heard of them? And you probably never will. This album will only to appeal to non-jazz lovers. It's shocking (but not entirely suprising) that Blue Note should stoop so low. If you like badly played under-produced grimy jazz-funk you'll love this. But then maybe you need an ear operation...
