Supercool with a refreshingly hard edge...,
This review is from: Top Secret (Audio CD)
Drawing on three decades of jazz playing, Belgian born keyboardist Marc Moulin delivers a funky mix of acid-jazz back beats, rolling organ & guitar licks and (thankfully sparse) electronically enhanced vocals that is pushed well above the “comfortably pleasant” zone by strong compositions, clever arrangements and effortlessly tight musicianship (including some excellent sax & trumpet breaks) that give virtually all of the tracks the hard edge needed to draw you back for more. Similar to Saint Germain’s “Tourist” but with a much stronger pure jazz feel, the album flows from start to finish and, while a couple of tracks come dangerously close, avoids falling into the boringly lush waters of “hotel lobby background music” that engulf too many of his contemporaries. Supercool, interesting & fun – a rare combination indeed!
