Remember when you were a kid, and wanted to drink coffee just because you thought grown-ups looked cool doing it, and you thought it would lend you an air of sophistication? Well the Black Coffee that this compilation of nu-jazz and downtempo grooves offers will make you feel equally hip, thrown casually into your CD changer when you have company over. Thankfully Chapter 4 has all the image enhancing sophistication you could need, complete with a jolt of ambience-creating stimulation, with none of the bitter aftertaste. The ear-tickling sounds that waft up from this disc are warm, relaxed and range from the neo-jazz lounge shuffle of Boozoo Bajou’s "Night Over Manaus" and Orbit Experience’s "Orbit in Moskow" to the organic bass line groove of Le Gammas "Outra Vida". Alex Cortiz’ "Room 505" takes a relaxed stroll through hip-hop beats and tweaked to perfection atmospherics. Equally cosmic is the spaced out soul-funk of Appleseeds "Please The Keys" and the overcast trip-hop of Gotan Project’s "Chunga’s Revenge". Infused with an exotic flavor throughout, Black Coffee Chapter 4 provides a diverse array of downtempo flavors that will add untold amounts of debonair and sexiness to your persona, and not to mention lull your guests into a blissful vibe.
