The vocals do it for me. The first time I heard " In the waiting line", I knew immediately I liked them. It took me two years to figure out who they were.
5-0 out of 5 stars Classic !
Yeah, this is a pretty mellow album, but it has a presence. Very clever song-writing, correct vocal appointments. In a strange way, it sort of reminds me of Freakpower, with a little more lessness ! If you like music, buy this ! All tastes should be satisfied here. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Washington, D.C.'s Thievery Corporation purvey a very mellow, deliberately international mixture of sounds that might be called "lounge music"--not in the kitschy sense, but in the sense of a laid-back local bar (much like the one the duo happens to run) with no dance floor. Rob Garza and Eric Hilton are professed admirers of Brazilian music, and they're determined to inject as much warmth into electronic music as possible. Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Finally
I finally got this album and it is exactly what I have been looking for: short tracks of relaxing trippy house. There are lots of middle eastern effects, which add to the music and rhythm of the album. It is just a joy to finally find a relaxing house album.

3-0 out of 5 stars Fun worldwide electroparty
The kind of album with many decent songs but few amazing ones, Mirror Conspiracy does fulfill on it's promise of one fluid world electronic mystique of an experience, if slightly generic and exploitive of it's supposed influences. Rationalizing aside, this still beats the beats of the majority slop passing for club music to these days.With enough variety to constitute Thievery's eclectic mix, this is good "chillout"(whatever people actually do when calling it that) music for fans already initiated into the Massive Attack legions of somewhat creative beat influenced work, neither overwhelming with innovation nor dulling with a lack thereof. One thing is certain, this unit could potentially have a sound that creates a far more compelling atmosphere then their chilled but less involving style more akin to this album's closer, but that is just my (way to serious for my own good) taste!

5-0 out of 5 stars Top 10 CD
The Mirror Conspiracy is another great blend of electronica, lounge, raga, afro-beat, latin-stylings and downright cool tunes. There are a lot of musical stylings going on. The World element really makes this album shine. I like the Jazzy element too, it reminds me a bit of "Air", "Spicehouse" and "Nuspirit Helsinki". If you're familiar with Thievery Corporation then you'll be familiar with their engrossing downbeat style and sound. If you're not familiar with Thievery Corporation - then you should be. There are a few points where the tracks jolt your ear because they don't blend into the album as well as the others. That said this cd is not one to miss. ... Read more

Context: I own a lot of music from Thievery Corp. , K&D, Moby's instrumental work, Rob Dougan and others. But of all the different kinds of"groove" I listen to and work to all day long, Thievery are my favorite artists / duo. If you own and enjoy the Mirror Conspiracy, you're going to love this IMO.

with so many different artists collaborating on this cd, i don't know where to begin
4-0 out of 5 stars Worth getting.And I'm picky.
These guys are going to have a hard time topping "The Mirror Conspiracy," but this album is pretty good.I particularly like tracks 3, 5 and 6.I was not fond of the last track because it reminded me too much of Al Green's "Let's Stay Together."Not that I don't like Al Green.I just appreciate originality.But there are several other good tracks on here.Buying "The Cosmic Game" was definitely not a mistake. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Reunion
N'Dea Davenport is back with the Brand New Heavies where she truly belongs and I couldn't be happier. I was devastated when she left back in the mid-90s. The Heavies tried to soldier on and 1997's "Shelter" with Seidah Garrett was a great album but I've always held the view that N'Dea and BNH go together like apple pie and ice cream - good enough separately but simply fantastic together.
1-0 out of 5 stars It's not what I've got used to
"Get Used to It" and "We won't stop" are TBNH releases that share the same category: boring music.
5-0 out of 5 stars Like That!!!
Yesterday, as I was taking my son to football practice he said," you finally took the other cd out." I was playing Hill St. soul (anther very talented artist) but he was referring to Get Used To It. I bought this cd when it first came out and have played it continuously almost everyday.What a way to come back, no disrespect to the other ladies who perfomed with the group after N'Dea but there is only one DIVA for BNH Ms. Davenport!! Like the previous reveiwer said," Just a fun, funky cd.I love it!! They will be in the Washington-Baltimore area on October 21, and I can't wait!!! ... Read more

Editorial Review

Adding pop savvy to their soul-disco mix, Jamiroquai grabbed the attention of MTV and Top 40 radio and won a Grammy with this platinum-selling album, their third. It's a fine record, with warm keyboards, sweet strings, and irrepressible grooves grounding Jay Kay's sublime vocals and fueling the hits ("Virtual Insanity," "Cosmic Girl," the title track). That voice--elastic, jazzy--is the fire of the band, but immaculate guitar sounds, snappy backup vocals, and clever old-school soul samples (Eddie Harris on "Alright," Esther Phillips on "High Times") are the details that create perfection. Balancing the dance-ready, radio-friendly tracks are the ballads "Everyday" and "Spend a Lifetime," the reggae-styled "Drifting Along," and a couple of didjeridoo instrumentals. Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars This slick album brings a mature string of arrangements
I remember years ago when I saw the music video for "Virtual Insanity" with its unique special effects and Jay Kay's signature vocal "sound," I had an inkling that it was going to be a good album to listen to. It's definitely a quick pick-me-up! You've got all different kinds of music on it. Reggae, rock, pop, jazz... etc. Whatever kind of music that floats your boat, you'll probably find on this album.
5-0 out of 5 stars Space
Driven by a 70's funk, dance release, Travelling Without Moving, is a deeper push for Jamiroquai and for the time."Cosmic Girl" is a good example of the album's direction with its mixture of disco, funk and dance that feels like a roller rink song.The variety found on this LP is apparently unmatched with titles such as the mellow love song "Everyday" quickly takes the spotlight.For a more Jamaican / Reggae instrumentation "Drifting Along" shows the versatility of Jamiroquai with its exotic atmosphere.Both "Didjerama" and "Didjital Vibrations" are instrumentals, but track 8 becomes annoying with its looped vibes."Didjital Vibrations" could stand alone as a jazzy, funk rendition that's only missing crooning vocals to set it off."Spend A Lifetime" is a romantic tune filled with a beautiful violin arrangement to help complete this album.Track 13 is a bonus track to conclude Travelling Without Moving on a high note or at least an up-beat.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not Jamiroquai's best.
This CD was just OK.The 2 best songs in my opinion are "Virtual Insanity" & "Cosmic Girl". The rest of the songs did not deserve a second listen.Just was not happy with the rest of the songs.They were missing that great distinctive Jamiroquai sound.Would not recommend this one to their fans. ...

Owning most of their output, this is my favorite, followed by "Mirror Conspiracy" and then "Cosmic Game". Re-mixed tunes from obscure (to me) artists segue into one another for over an hour's musical world tour, Thievery-Style.Their musical perspective explores the best elements of each choice, moving on at the perfect time to keep you interested and wanting more. Unlike a lot of CDs, this set stays strong towards the end!

This CD is great!Just play, lay back and chill. The beats are melow and invigorating.I can't take this out of my CD player.

4-0 out of 5 stars Another good heist...
Thievery Corporation is kind of like that friend you had growing up who had this really great record collection with songs you never heard before and had no idea existed. Always exasperated you would ask him 'Where in the world did you get that?' And then, of course, you'd have to get a copy of all of them in the form of a mix tape. That's pretty much what these guys do.

A wonderful friend told me to listen to Anything for You...so I did.I was blown away with this single song so I bought & downloaded it...this led me to the CD and once again I was assaulted with beautiful smooth jazz from start to finish.If you take the time to listen to this CD, you will not be disappointed by its quality.It's one of my favorite CDs this year.Check it out!

5-0 out of 5 stars Completely Seductive
Chillounge is by far one of the most underated cds put out in 2005-2006. One listen and this cd will ensnare you with its slick and sexy beats. People People....are you listening? If you are still into magical compilations that actually have substance and direction then check this out. Every track on this flows with such strength and chilled flavor, i think this will be one of those records that just builds and builds a following. You have got to give this a listen from start to finish and you will understand what i mean...completely seductive!

5-0 out of 5 stars A journey of chilled sound
I love this CD.The tracks are filled with driving beats but the whole thing still maintains that relaxing, smooth, chilled-out vibe.Arranged perfectly, each track expertly takes you on a worldwide journey of sound filled with sultry vocals and jazzy techno beats. As expected from Intentcity, this CD is of the finest quality ~ I couldn't recommend it more! ... Read more

Editorial Review

John Scofield's stature as a modern jazz master on electric guitar puts him in a sweet spot for this simmering, sexy collaboration with acid jazz pathfinders Medeski, Martin and Wood, Scofield's taut and spicy lines striking sparks against the soulful grooves pitched by drummer Billy Martin, keyboard colorist John Medeski, and bassist Chris Wood. Far from a cheap commercial shot, the leader's plunge into this reheated '60s style is appropriately redolent of its funk heritage and his own astringent command of sharp lyrical and smart harmonic asides.

5-0 out of 5 stars Taming the MMW beast.I recommend this cd.
Although I like much of what MMW do,I sometimes feel they "miss the point" by getting too hashed-out or weird for weird's sake.So it's good to see them "tamed" on this release.Maybe Scofield demands they behave...? I like much of this cd because there are pieces that likely could be played "live" in pretty much their current form, as opposed to either drastically stripping them down or needing looping/extra players/computers because they rely too heavily on heavy studio/computertreatments. This seems more like what Booker T and the MGs might have sounded like if they had to survive in today's market as a jazz act instead of r & b... The samples of their newer cd sound just as good.

4-0 out of 5 stars A Go Go
John Scofield, along with Medeski, Martin, & Wood, offers a great combination to produce excellent jazz. The upbeat tempos and funk-based bass lines are all wonderful, however, I found the CD at times to be monotonous in tone and often lacking in the variety part of it. Though great as it might be, and as much skill as it takes (as a guitarist I would know), I'd have to give this a 3.5 star because it lacks in variety and development in the songs. Perhaps the first 4 songs are original and wonderful, it truly impressed me, after that it gets kind of old...until you get to Hottentot. This is perhaps the best song of the album, the solos are unpredictable, original, and great. It develops from the funk based rhythm to a more fusion and harder beat song. Overall a pretty good album.

5-0 out of 5 stars Old Meets New
Legend John Scofeild playing with Medeski, Martin and Wood? Whats not too like? I guess the argument about it being a bit repetitive from track-to-track and leaning too [...] the sharp nine is valid. But so what? If you're in the mood for some guitar driven jazz/funk this will suit you just fine. As for calling the tracks on this album "throw aways" and then comparing them to "Kind of Blue" (one of the most prolific albums in jazz history) -- that is sheer [...]. ... Read more

The overall CD is funky and groovy of course, but wanted to draw attention that "Canned Heat" is the song in the dance sequence in "Napoleon Dynamite".

I have to admit that after the great "Travelling Without Moving," I was a little hesitant about getting this the follow up album for fear of experiencing the usual letdown of follow-up album falling way short of the classic that preceded it but lo and behold what a great album this turned out to be!Not only are all the tracks great, the sound quality of this very well produced disc is also excellent.No weak tracks at all and although still not as great as "Travelling...", "Synkronized" holds its own very well indeed.Highly recommended!

After a four year hiatus since the release of their last cd 'A Funk Odyssey', Jamiroquai is back and better than ever. With thirteen years and five hit records including 'Traveling Without Moving' and 'Synkronized'under their belt, this is one band that understands the concept of "if it aint broke, don't fix it".
3-0 out of 5 stars 3-1/2 stars -- More like a small spark
It seems like after the success of "Alright" waned (that video was always played on BET for some reason), people stopped paying attention to Jamiroquai. Still, I decided to check out their latest album, Dynamite, to see if JK and the bunch still had it.
3-0 out of 5 stars Dissapointment overload
hey! I am a REAL jamirogirl - i love jamiroquai through and through lol i have all there albums an evn met JK!!! As a fan I was basically obliged to buy dynamite. However I found it really disappointing, compared to their other stuff - i mean you can't compare dynamite to the return of the space cowboy or emergency... Jamioquai's new stuff has completley lost it's original, rich funky sound - i mean Fells.. that was so un-jamiroquai. I really wud not reccomend ne1 but this but who am I 2 say - U may like it :) therefore yh try it out I gess.

With each successive album, Medeski Martin & Wood have become harder to pin down.

Martin & Wood Medeski have a very unique sound...I like it.I first heard the song "End of the World Party" on the Grey's Anatomy Season One soundtrack.I became addicted to it, and bought the album.
4-0 out of 5 stars Refreshing
Very interesting, a bit of a departure from the other albums they have. It is getting hard to put a label on their music, but thats what makes it so good. I have not purchased any new music for quit a while, so last week I picked up several albums this being one of them, along with Spicehouse and Zero7. I must say I love this CD, I have been playing every day in the car. The sound quality is fantastic, especially in headphones. This New York band has always been experimenting and building on their sound. I think they have come to a peak on this one. One thing is for sure, the musicianship is always top notch on all their albums, this is no exception. They have a more modern sound here Kind of Hip Hop - Trip Hop, whatever, but it sounds great. This album starts off with the strange "Anonymous skulls" and then moves into the greattitle track. The rest of the album seems to move in and out of trippy groves, experimental jazz and some interesting electronica. Some of my friends who are great people, but can't get out of their tiny musical worlds actually like this when I play it. It is nice to hear some fresh new music.

Everytime music comes up as a subject in my dull conversations with pathetically blind people they always have to say that they like electronic music and jazz (actually they always say that they like all music generes, and eveyone knows everything is nothing) and when i ask who? they will always reply (in 98% of the cases) Ella Fitzgerald and St. Germain.

This is the hippest, coolest, jazziest of the 21st century.A new genre of jazz,HOUSE JAZZ.Chillin jazz is right here for your listening and laid back pleasure.This is chill music jazz.The songs are hypnotic beats, very underplayed, with full jszz improvisation.This is not light jazz, believe me.It's jazz over house beats.One song even starts off paying tribute to the world wide DJ's of house.It is jazz, house, dub.That's the best way to define what this listen is.If you're a bebop purist, stay away.But if you really understand jazz this is your place to be.Jazz is about innovation and improvisation.New stuff.Let's leave the past behind.Always moving ahead.Miles would be proud.The first shot fired in the 21st. century cool revolution.

2-0 out of 5 stars Dull
There are three good songs on this album: Deep In It, Street Scene, and Forget It. The rest of the tracks are filler. Alabama Blues is a good disco song, but it doesn't fit in with the rest of the slow-cool-jazz-groove thing on the rest of the disc.Read more

Editorial Review

Although sure to be criticized for cashing in on the Ray Charles bandwagon, jazzman John Scofield’s 2005 tribute release is also one of the most varied yet successful albums in the guitarist’s extensive catalog. Shifting from a big band/multi-vocalist approach for the classic "What’d I Say" featuring an all-star lineup of Dr. John, Warren Haynes, Aaron Neville, John Mayer and Mavis Staples trading verses (they all also take solo vocals on other tracks), along with longtime Charles saxist David "Fathead" Newman, to the lone guitar rendition of "Georgia on my Mind" that closes the disc, Scofield celebrates both Charles’ music and his eclectic approach to it. The stripped down instrumental version of "Crying Time" with only funereal organ accompaniment is perfectly offset by the following gospelized reading of "I Can’t Stop Loving You," brought home by Mavis Staples’ explosive vocal. Teen throb John Mayer acquits himself admirably on vocals and guitar, singing and trading licks with Scofield on a rugged "I Don’t Need No Doctor," and Dr. John brings New Orleans soul on a greasy "Talkin’ Bout You"/"I Got a Woman" medley.The horn section gets a workout on powerfully swinging instrumental takes of "Hit the Road Jack" and "Let’s Go Get Stoned." Scofield’s quivering solos show moderation yet convey the music’s R&B roots, even when he’s turning up the heat on a rousingMedeski, Martin and Wood -styled, acid laced "Sticks and Stones." Producer/drummer Steve Jordan finds the perfect vibe between jazz and R&B, and keeps the guest vocalists from stealing the spotlight. He provides the ideal framework for John Scofield’s fiery yet restrained playing and a fitting tribute to a jazz/R&B icon.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Incredible tribute
I am a big JS fan, as a musician he is an incredible composer and also a great guitar player,The CD brings you an incredible horn arrangements, Larry Goldings a superb organ player and a very nice mix of artist from the pop, rhythm blues and gospel areas, also incredible solos from JS. I heard him twice live in Boston at Berklee College of Music when I was student , for all the tributes honoring the music of Ray Charles this is the best so far, don't miss this one

4-0 out of 5 stars Not his best outing.
I'm a big JS fan. I pick up all of his albums and go to see him when I can. With the exception of a few tracks, I think that this album is disappointing. The problem is that the band really is playing the music of Ray Charles, but Scofield is playing Scofield. Alone, these are great grooves. Together, it sounds like the band and guitar parts were recorded separately. Furthermore, I don't know about these vocalists. Except for Dr. John, it all sounds like pop. It's good pop, but it doesn't fit with JS. I would recommend the album, but only after "A Go Go", "Bump", and "Works For Me."

5-0 out of 5 stars The Genius of Ray Charles continues
I heard the beginning of "What I say" in my car on the way to work. I thought, "Hey Hey! How cool the Neville Brothers and Dr. John are doing some Ray Charles." Then I heard the guitar solo at the end and I luckily pulled into the office lot before wrecking.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not one of Maysa's better records.
Wow! Surpised at all the 5 star reviews! There isn't a cut on this CD that is as good as the original version. I love listening to Maysa, and have all her solo albums as well as the Incognito albums. This one is just fair, mostly because the songs, while good, are not given the extra life or energy required to justify a remake. Maysa shows up, but I was waiting for that one song where she would break out, like she does on so many of her better cuts. The backing band, is just OK, and sounds mostly electronic. Betcha by Golly Wow is an example of a song that plodded along without coming to life. And the Roberta Flack masterpiece at the end, remains Roberta's. Still, not a bad CD. Will keep buying Maysa's work because she is a great soul singer, but this one sounds more like something you'd hear from a band in a cruise ship lounge.

5-0 out of 5 stars Soul-Full
Classic soul describes both the content of this CD and the sound of Maysa's voice. The music is timeless and the tone of Maysa's voice is otherworldly. Beautifully rich, soul-full and tastefully reproduced, Maysa does justice to the classic's.
3-0 out of 5 stars Not Maysa's Best Work
I love Maysa w/ Incognito, and love her first solo album as well.This one left me a bit flat.These were all cover tunes, and my opinion is that if you are going to cover a song, you've got to do it different AND better.They were different, all right.Not much interesting happening, even Maysa's great voice seemed like she was holding back. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars interesting choice...
Stephane Pompougnac's (best of...) compilation of the Hotel Costes series has a few definite good choices on here (Adore, No Communication/No Love, London In The Rain) but some of the songs don't seem to qualify as 'the best', such as 'Clementine', 'Surrond me with your love' and 'S.O.S.' which are not that good (that's just my opinion) I say that 'IN BLACK OF NIGHT'(COSTES 6), 'PONGER STAR'(COSTES 5) and 'PLEASE DON'T LEAVE'(COSTES 7) should be on there instead of the other 3.Ah well... it still pretty good!

5-0 out of 5 stars great downtempo collection
i don't have the other hotel costes cd's, but this collection is lush, stylish, and mellow.if you like chillout electronica with a european twist, then you'll enjoy this compilation.the first song, sympathique, doesn't fit the chillout genre, but is a great campy french edith-piaf-like song.the madonna remix is great as well. my favorite song is "surround me with your love" excellent groove.perfect music to unwind or to listen to as you work.

3-0 out of 5 stars these CDs are variable
I bought three Hotel Costas CD's.My favorite, by far, was Best of Hotel Costas.

5-0 out of 5 stars smooth, sexy, and relaxing
After listening to the first Mushroom Jazz, getting the 2nd volume in the series was a no brainer.I would say the mixing is a lot better in this set, but doesn't beat the overall quality of the first one.What is fascinating about Farina is his mixes do not sound dated and they are timeless in my opinion.A lot of the mainstream electronic music sounds ghetto when you listen to it years later, but Farina's style is fresh and there isn't the slightest hint of aging to his musical compositions.Also don't make the mistake of importing this set to your computer in separate tracks like I did.It totally ruined the continuity of the mix and the pauses in between tracks can be a serious mood killer.It took me almost a year to warm up to Farina's work and once it clicked there was no turning back.

5-0 out of 5 stars A real pride for the true Downtempo Headz...
Farina introduced me to deep house music 5 years ago with San Francisco Sessions. In 2002 I discovered the Mushroom jazz series, and all I can say is that Mushroom Jazz is my best experience of all time in music...
4-0 out of 5 stars Great CD for kicking back and chilling...
This is the first and only album from Farina's Mushroom Jazz volumes that I own, and I must say, I am impressed. This is an album that can be played from start to finish. Being in college, this CD has been great for small parties and/or get-togethers that puts everyone into a "chilled, relaxed mood". I believe there was just one song I did not exactly favor on the album.=, but overall, it is worth the buy. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great tracks
Although I love the songs, I cringe at the transitioning.I expected the mixing to be more professional.Overlooking that aspect, Farina's selections are wonderful. I still love the CD enough to give it a good rating.

5-0 out of 5 stars Just Listen
This CD is simply the product of all good music combined. Hip-Hop beats, Jazz, Vocals, Blues, you name it. The title "mushroom jazz" is just perfect to describe the kind of music. It's jazzy and trippy. In my opinion, people who are into hardcore rap wouldn't like it. This is not a rap album. It is the beats that sound like hip-hop but with instruments and vocals layered on top of it. If you just want to chill out or want to create a lounge atmosphere, then this is the CD to play. This album is just the beginning of the series of whole new sounds!

5-0 out of 5 stars smooth and sexy beats
If you've never heard of Mark Farina, please wait no further and get this CD!Mushroom Jazz is an interesting mix of hip-hop, jazz, and funky beats.The CD is incredibly smooth and you'll find yourself tapping your foot throughout the entire album.The mixing is seemless and I like how he blends previous or future tracks into a song that is currently being played.The track might be In Hale, but it'll incorporate some beats/vocals from J-Live.Mushroom Jazz is quiet a remarkable and rare CD. I love it! ... Read more
