All I can really say is... GO AND BUY THIS ALBUM. Ludovic Navarre has produced something here that is quite out of the ordinary. After a long hard stressful day, come in, throw everything on the floor, and put this on to sooth your senses. Tracks such as Thank you Mum (4 Everything you did) and Street scene (4 Shazz) are sensational - the chilled groove with jazz snippets slowly bubbling their way up through are mindblowingly excellent. If that ain't good I don't know what is! You can find equally funky tunes on St Germain's newer albums 'Tourist' and 'From Detroit to St. Germain'.

I believe this is the best jazz house record ever made or ever to be made. Even for jazz fans , this record shows a quality and taste in beautiful music.

St. germain provide an excellent selection for searchers of contemporary electronic music, following the example of US3's jazz sampling practice, St. germain stick to jazz more than their blue note peers US3 and explore the sounds of modern sampling and beat producing machinery combined with live saxophone, guitars and piano. A truelly marvellous recording.

A cool, sometimes funky mixture of soft house and open jazz. This record in excellent in-car listening. The creative use of sax and muted trumpet blends well with effective bass / beat and vibes. Highly recommended.

Well, for starters, St. Germaing has nothing to do with Saint Germain Des Pres, so the 2 star comment below about it, forget it. Secondly, Boulevard was realeased in 1995, the Tourist only in 2000, so i think they're not comparable since DJ's and remixing techniques developed a lot from the 90' to 00's.

Both are beautiful and amazing albums, I have both of them on CD and Vinyl and i love them.

It's a pitty that we haven't heard from St. Germain's (Ludovic Navarre) work since 2000. I'd love to know if he's been doing anything to be released. I'll surely buy it.

If you're hesitating between buying or not, don't wait no more! Do it. I garantee you: no regrets!

I have only just come across Ludevic Navarre aka St. Germain but what a find, stunning album. This cd along with 'The Tourist' are definitely my current favourites, can't stop playing them. Considering these albums are 10 years old they are still very fresh sounding easy to listen to and not too deeply jazzy. Am now going to work my way through the others in this series. Happy days!

Some long assed tunes on here but they are worth it. Deep dubby, jazzy, housey it's fine. When I first bought it I was thinking jees how long does this track go on for, and then I smiply learned to lay back and be a part of it and when I let go of the panic to hear the end I embraced the quality and message of the sounds. Now I truly appreciate it.

Love this album - not "quite" ("" = italics!) as well produced at my other one of his (though still high quality), but it has a great vibe exactly because of that on one or two of the tracks. Buy it if you've heard anything from it and you like it - you won't regret I'm sure.

There are no words to describe and define this album. The fusion of electronic music and jazz is something excellent, it is a mix fits in very well but difficult to create. Applaud this group that managed to create this album of music sought so charming and refined. Evergreen.
