5.0 out of 5 stars All the right ingredients
Here's another word of praise. I enjoy introspective, nocturnal mixes and this one does it all for me. The mood, the variety in weaving themes, while remaining silky smooth. It wins in knowing where to ease down and where to take a different turn, or where to provide space for softer tones. There are gentle, elegant threads, the mood is introspective, comforting and...

Here's another word of praise. I enjoy introspective, nocturnal mixes and this one does it all for me. The mood, the variety in weaving themes, while remaining silky smooth. It wins in knowing where to ease down and where to take a different turn, or where to provide space for softer tones. There are gentle, elegant threads, the mood is introspective, comforting and affectionate, touching, at times. There are no rough edges to bruise, although there are enough surprises to sustain intensity till the end. One to buy for the special person in your life.

I chose my rating because I am a fan of Bonobo. This is a very nice chill out CD and it is lovely to hear what they listen to and get their influences from.

Very fond of this artist and he has not disappointed in a virtual-DJ role setting up this lovely sequence of music. Strongly recommended for his fans, jazz fans, soul fans, unusual electronica fans - lots to enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic musical scrapbook, 27 Nov 2013
This review is from: Late Night Tales - Bonobo (Audio CD)
Bonobo, aka Simon Green, with his mix of electronic, downtempo and jazz roots seems like an excellent choice to curate the next instalment of this well-regarded series.

It starts with An Ending, A Beginning by Dustin O'Halloran, a beautiful progression of piano with strings in the background. Soon after we get to Bonobo's own contribution, a cover of Donovan's Get Thy Bearings with one of his long-time collaborators Szjerdene providing silky vocals to a multi-layered collection of electronic sounds and soft drums that leads to the soulful turn of Didn't I by Darondo.

Throw in some brassy tracks, Flipside by Hypnotic Brass Ensemble and The Traitor by Menahan Street Band and listeners are taken on a skilful exploration of linked genres.

The middle section slows a little to Places by Shlohmo which is detailed but chilled out, with influences of hip hop and soothing vocals while the synthesisers and distorted bass create a sense of huge space.

I enjoyed Wing by The Invisible with the mix of ambient, percussive sounds and the vibrating electric guitar. Nearer the end of the album we switch direction to more classical composition with Sailing Out To Sea by Matthew Halsall which features mournful strings and is dark and soothing.

A smile came to my face when One Thing by Peter and Kerry came up as it was a nice take on Amerie with guitar plucking, sliding notes and a calmer pace to match the emotion of their voices.

Overall this is a brilliantly put together compilation, showcasing some of the music that has informed Bonobo and gives a wide insight into his musical tastes. There are multiple genres at work, but the selection order is such that they blend together practically seamlessly. This is a must-have if you like Bonobo or have listened to Late Night Tales before.

5.0 out of 5 stars so amazing, 26 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Late Night Tales - Bonobo (Audio CD)
i was desperate to have this album when it came out and i can't express enough how great it is. each song glides onto the next so smoothly and i've discovered some songs that i didn't know before, which are now solid favourites of mine (such as 'Baltimore' by Nina Simone and 'A Calf Born in Winter' or 'The Traitor'). simon green is very knowledgeable and knows exactly what he's doing so i really relax into the music when i listen to this cd, knowing that something totally right will come up next and trusting his choice of music.

Wow, This is a different from the rest.

Mixing is excellent.

A couple of songs are so so + Cumberbatch's reading is random as hell.
Great record overall. Nicely packaged and with download codes. Good buy.
