Four80East - Round Three (2002) Retail CD
Another extraordinary effort by Canadian jazz wizards Four80East. Round 3 is something of a departure from their elegantly cerebral cd, Nocturnal, but no one's going to be disappointed. There are still enough atmospheric grooves and spacey musical effects to fill a planetarium. However, the emphasis in Round 3 is on "funkiness"--and it'll definitely funk your brains out. Every track is an individual tonescape. Some, like Last Flight to LA, are moodily introspective. Then there's Burn Down the Bayou, a hypnotically pulsating bass ostinato underlining a funky, synthesized trumpet solo. In Je Pensemore… a Toi, a French babe whispers sweet nothings from the midst of Vangelis-like synthesizers and pirouetting guitar and bass riffs. Mint Julep begins as a shiveringly beautiful and atmospheric melody that soon transforms into a down south style bass and harmonica duel, sustained all the while by the same melody, which haunts the background before finally forcing itself again to the fore. It would take a very long review to do full justice to Round 3. Fluent melodies, trance inducing beats, stylish arrangements, inventive musical effects, rock crushing bass lines...one could go on almost forever. As you listen to this music pay close attention to the bass, guitar and keys--they're all the same guy! Which is why Four80East remains a studio entity. Rob DeBoer and percussionist Tony Grace are the creative masterminds and general do-alls behind Four80East. As with Nocturnal and before that, The Album, they are supported in their musical voyages by a stellar crew of soloists.This is not your mother's jazz. "Electro-jazz", "groove jazz", trance jazz", hypno-jazz", call it what you will, Round 3 will knock your socks off. Get it!
