Pleasant But No More Than That
on 26 September 2015
I am not a true fan of either of these artistes but thought this sounded interesting enough to warrant the purchase – especially as it was voted ‘album of the year.’
This to me is ‘cocktail lounge’ music. It's lovely to listen to, clearly very professionally done and of course wonderful on the ear. However, to a neutral like me, much of it sounds rather the same. I accept that real jazz buffs would take more from it and me. I’m probably not going to play this for a while now but it is superb back drop music.! The songs are overly long IMHO in the main, and Leonard Cohen‘s oration of ‘Jungle Line’ did little for me.
Sorry but that’s how it grabbed me. 7/10 for me and a really nice listen. I certainly wouldn't put anyone off buying it for mood music.
