Sumptuous jazz fused with north African and Spanish influences. Some real catchy tunes (particularly the first 4 or 5) as well as some great grooves to have in the background to set a cool mood.

Coming up with a soundbite to describe this CD would be hard. It simply defies all attemts to put it into a category.
It's jazzy, it's rappy, it's laid back. Mediterranean rhythms cunningly blended with very seductive vocals and some excellent instrumental performances (don't miss the way "African piano" fades into an exquisite cello solo at the end). This CD is a must-have for any serious music listener.
Music apart, another thing which struck me about this CD was the quality of the recording. This is complex music but absolutely none of the sound layers have been lost in the mix. Every single instrument (and there are a lot of them) is exactly where it should be. It's hard to believe that a debut artist can produce a CD with so much depth yet this well produced.

This recording will play and play, each time I listen to it I notice something different. I can't categorise this music but rai it is definitely not. There's bits of rapping with a Gil Scott Heron type vocal delivery, track 3 sounds a bit like Manu Chao & with track eight I could be sitting in Ronnie Scotts or the Barbican whilst track 10 reminds me of the soundtrack from the film Diva.
Jazz club, WOMAD, rap gig, classical recital this CD flows eemlessly through it all and I certainly won't tire of it.
