Unique Jazz-tronica CD
“Allergic to Gravity” is a unique jazz-tronica album from New York City saxophonist/electronic music composer Thomas Hutchings. This album is all about making original, good music. Hutchings’ songs originate with the synthesizer, programmed beats, and various electronica elements, forming the base for all the tracks. Then he dubs live instruments, including percussion, creative guitar, funky bass, sax, flute, clarinet, and trumpet over it to complete the arrangement. Some tracks are jazz-heavy, others are electronica-heavy, and still others breech the trip-hop and funk genres. All of the arrangements are outstanding, with catchy hooks, danceable beats, and the live instruments perfectly in sync with the programmed elements. “Allergic to Gravity” is well-produced, and the louder you play it, the better. “Shizznizzle” has a great arrangement with a quick flute line throughout, a funky bass line, hot beats programming, and an overall consistency throughout. “Everybody Say Ahhhhh” is an electronica-heavy track with extreme danceability and light horns in the background, and features a great trumpet solo against the beats. Overall, “Allergic to Gravity” is an original album that fuses two distinct genres through a great electronic base and excellent jazz accompaniments. Fans of either of these genres should see what jazz-tronica is all about.

Fun
I listen to this on my iPod when I go running - the funky beats are fabulous and happy. "Can't Stop Repeatin' Myself" is good silly fun - but my favorite song here is "Make Some Noise for the Funk"!
