MONDO GROSSO MG4 [SONY] We've been playing a couple of tracks from this album for about four months now and finally you'll be able to own them for yourself. 'Now You Know Better', featuring the wonderfully fragile vocal of Amel Larrieux, is simply my favourite one-off track in the whole of this year: I love the way it builds and builds from Rickie Lee Jones/Janis Ian-ish folky beginnings to swing jazzily and funkily along on the keyboards and programmed drum. Superb. It does tend to overshadow much else that's on show, but several other jocks on soul24-7 have been hammering the UK 2-steppy 'Show Me Your Love', which was co-written by and features N'Dea Davenport. Due on the shelves come Jan/Feb 2001, so don't waste a moment.

With their 4th studio album, Mondo Grosso has proved to be one of most influential and enduring acid-jazz bands of our times. The irresistably cool Japanese outfit (fronted by talented Shinichi Osawa) cooks up a musical feast of delicious acid-jazz spiced with glossy 2-step, house, hip-hop and bossa nova. Rather than sounding clunky and jarring with different genres all mixed into one album, MG4 plays smoothly from start to finish visiting various musical terrains on the way without ever losing their musical focus and vision.
"MG4" is no doubt Mondo Grosso's best offering to date. And with Amel Larrieux (former vocalist of Groove Theory) and N'Dea Davenport (former vocalist of The Brand New Heavies) doing guest vocals, this is an album not to be missed.
Excellent stuff!!

A surprising and refreshing piece. There is something for everyone on this with N-Dea, Monday Michiru and one of my all time favourites Tania Maria as well as nu-soul queen Amel Larrieux. The Monday Michiru tunes were typically Monday type tunes but still very good all the same. I was so impressed with the Tania Maria tracks MG44 and Sambo do Gato, MG44 gives echoes of her debut album "Come with Me". The other Latin flavours on the album are also quite good. The Amel Larrieux track "Now You Know Better" is just something to behold and something to play again and again. Earthy, organic and just sheer brilliant. Can't wait for her to release another album.

FRESH ORCHESTRAL GARAGE JAZZY LATIN BOSSA AND SOUL I remember when I first heard the track 'Butterfly' by Mondo Grosso on a Jon Sa Trincha Salinas Beach mix and I thought, hmmmm garage with strings and piano which sounds fresh. I took a gamble on buying the album today for 2 quid and I was pleasantly surprised. Filled with nice smooth sexy garage beats, great vocals from Tania Maria and others and well produced jazzy and orchestral backgrounds. Some tracks are more garage, some more lounge based and some are house, but essentially, this is a big mixture of sophisticated sounds. It reminds me a little of 4 Hero's work in some places except they dont use garage beats they are more a Nu-Jazz/soul act.

HASH(0x9a64fa2c) out of 5 stars A Wonderful Journey 9 April 2001
By jeremy B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you're in love with Incognito, Satoshi Tomiie or Towa Tei, this CD is for you. MG4 is an elegant and vibring melt of several kind of music such as Acid-Jazz, Soul, 2-Step, Funky brazilian house and bossa with an "All Star Cast". Favorite tracks include: "Show Me Your Love", a wonderful Soul track featuring the exceptional N'Dea Davenport; the progressive "Star Suite"(great lyrics); and the powerful brazilian party gem "Life" (featuring Paula Lima). A Sensational album.

HASH(0x9a64fa80) out of 5 stars You must own this gem.... 13 Jan. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
What can I say about this gem? It is a change from Mondo Grosso's previous efforts but this makes it all the more worthwhile to have. Imagine putting a compilation together with N'Dea Davenport, Tania Maria, Amel Larrieux and Monday Michiru. Well here it is in the flesh and you had better get it.
I would have paid the price just for Amel Larrieux's, Now you know better, which simmers, then cooks and then absolutely boils over. If ever a tune could move you from one level to another then that is it. Tania Maria is at her eccentric best and gets you grooving in that Brazillian way that only she can. Life which is a lovely groovy latin track which also cooks is another reason for getting hold of this gem.
It's a pity the 30 second listening doesn't give you a real appreciation of what the tracks on the album are all about. All I can say is take my word for it and you won't be dissapointed.

HASH(0x9a64fc54) out of 5 stars Mondo Grosso: A definite Buy 27 Mar. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I originally bought this CD from a recommendation from a DJ at a local Atlanta radio station. After hearing. "Now You Know Better" featuring Amel Larrieux I was hooked.
This CD offeres some of the most ecclectic sounds around. mondo Grosso is a group with lots of experience and it shows on this work. Songs to pay particular attention to include the uptempo "Butterfly" and "Life" featuring Paula Lima. They are what I call "happy songs" and offer a really beautiful relief to some of the sounds out know. Also, the "Star Suite" sequences remind me of being a child and coming into my own as a young adult.
HASH(0x9a6521a4) out of 5 stars Cool,Progressive 22 April 2008
By Angelo Merced - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I enjoyed this album tremendously, The sounds are deep and rich. I like the mix of cool and progressive jazz with lots of spoken word that inspires thought.I also love the brazilian tunes that transport you to another place. You can also raise the volume and dance to some of the tracks at your next party. Dont know who she is but her vocals are some of the best I've ever heard, Her voice brings richness to this work. I highly recommend this album to those who can openn their minds to a variety of flavors.

this is a great cd. it takes you on worldly journeys. From the mellow club to the beat of brazil then back to the poetry of the lower east side. a must buy in my book. i just have to check out the remix album. star suite is amazing (blaze rmx) if you haven't heard it in the shelter you missed out.
