instant lounge jazz classic from Belgium,
This review is from: Top Secret (Audio CD)
Marc Moulin, belgian top composer, programmer, producer, keyboardist and more, got together with the best of belgian modern jazz musicians to record this instant lounge jazz classic.
Over tasteful yet solid rhythms the featured artists (among them Philip Catherine on electric guitar) play short inventive solos. Vocalist Christa adds some cool refrains but Moulin chose to feature her singing more as a rhytmic instrument.
Highlights are Into the dark, What (with the voice of ex-Sparks Ron Mael) and Organ. Watch out for the double cd version issued in 2002: the 2nd cd features 7 great dance remixes which bring out the latin influences in What and the coolness of Into the dark and adds a videorecording of a great performance by Marc Moulin and his group.
The 2cd version of Top Secret surely deserves 5 stars as it satisfies those who prefer the dance side of lounge jazz.
