Whether chilling out, working out or getting down, the latest mix from one of Blue Note's boldest imports has the stuff to get it to ya.
From the peppy five take of the opening single "Rose Rogue" to the Hammond-ed gospel of "Land of'" and the frenetic bourre of "So Flute," St. Germain guides brave aural tourists through a wild ride through the many sides of jazz. The riddims of "Montego Bay Spleen" are pure dance hall, while the rhythms of "Pont Des Arts" come straight from the dance club.
The album is an eclectic mix, but it's impressively held together through references to the time-tested likes of Brubeck, Miles, Hamp and Mann and their at times more impressive contemporary re-workings.

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
