like a box of chocolates ? you never know what you?re gonna get!
albeit slightly modified ? insight from Forrest Gump perfectly sums up that
special something offered by moreorlessJazz
4. A compilation whose very name hints at the element of surprise that has
always distinguished contemporary Jazz music: the lack of dogma and the freedom
to integrate diverse influences from the worlds of Pop, Latin, Jazz and Soul!
The latest CD in the series again features a range
of established young stars of the scene such as Jamie Cullum, Eliane Elias and
Lyambiko as well as up-and-coming artists like Gerardo Frisina, Sofia Petterson
and Torsten Goods. What they have in common is the ability to provide sophisticated,
exciting and stylishly presented sounds.
After hearing all 15 songs, it becomes clear that moreorlessJazz 4 defies conventional categories as it runs the
gamut from intelligent Pop to sophisticated Jazz. Never predictable, always
delightful and never anything less than superior-quality songs. Strict
definitions of Jazz rapidly become redundant.
