Album Notes
The new CD from Eliott James

Cinematic Life

"The Big Screen for the Mind. Electronic rock is Mr. James forte, and this CD presents some of the best electronic I've heard since the Alan Parsons Project." MA Foster, music reviewer, AmbientVisions.com

"Contemporary, jazzy, hip and different. That’s what James’ music is all about." RJ Lannan, New Age Reporter

“Cinematic Life is an album rendered from pure instrumental skill. This high power dose of atmospheric worldly music keeps the listener in a state of trance from beginning to end. The Album glides in and out of dark yet gentle ambience and upbeat melodic rock. It is full of space, laced with impulsive grooves provided by the kit drum and layer upon layer of ethnic percussion. A vessel for Eliott James’ warm, passionate guitar playing. It draws influences from the world of new age music, hypnotic space rock, dub and ambient world beats." DJ Excavator, SENSE-AETHERICA, (Norwich, England, UK)

"Techno Jazz at its very best. The Album is hauntingly innovative and is strong rhythmically." John Reid, Keith Community Radio (Keith, Banffshire, Scotland)

"What makes Cinematic Life special is that beneath it's pulsating rhythms and sound effects, there is melody. And surprisingly, some soul. I found Eliott James' CD to be a refreshing change and quite beautiful." Sal Nunziato, music writer (New York)

"Midnight Desert Run had that thunder in the distance feeling as the music stampedes across the barren plain with a biting wind and lightning at its heels. This one has a driving beat and a guitar lead that would make Les Paul proud. It’s like Ghost Riders in the Sky meets World fusion jazz." RJ Lannan, New Age Reporter

"Eliott James crafts a hypnotic synergy of beats and grooves. I played nearly all this CD on my radio show tonight. I generally don't allow an artist more than 10 minutes at a time but James' music was so dynamic, so enrapturing that it demanded the listener's ear on every track. From mellow to upbeat, long strings to jazz-like sax solos, synthesized beats to sampled natural soundscapes, "Cinematic Life" holds onto you the whole disc through. " Danny Ledonne, KRZA-FM (Alamosa/Taos)

"Think of the music of Tangerine Dream and Kraftwerk interspersed with the latest technology and beautiful acoustic guitars and pulsating rhythms, some contemporary jazz injected in just the right places, and you are right in the middle of a Cinematic Life. The title could not be more appropriate. This music has the ability to take you anywhere you would like to go, its like having your own do it yourself world at your fingertips, just put the CD on and let it all happen." JazzReview.com

Eliott James has a passion for acoustic elements, as heard on his new CD with cello, harp, piano, upright bass and guitar. But these sounds are mixed with strong beats, synths, electric bass and guitar leads, giving us eleven songs that span several styles, that are hard to classify and even harder to compare to other artists. There are currents of jazz, rock, electronica, ambient, dance and soundscape influences but not one consistent style that runs throughout. This is good. It's a cinematic life, after all.
