Album Notes
This is fresh!
What with it starting so clean with horns, strings, acoustic guitar and sparkling vocal performance - it's super cool really.
almost a new style of music to me and I really dig it!
The performance is stellar! great git picking with a lot of percussive hints to keep the beat grooving - love the dual playing to keep the stereo field honest and real ... fab horn work, right in there on every note, but no wasted space by draggin it all over the song - and the strings do their bit as a backup and step forward at times to highlight the musical theme as a solo instrument. Light and easy yet not the least bit boring.

The vocals are simple enough but it's a fine melody that is really easy to grab onto despite the language barrier (for me) ... I'm gonna have to say it's french and it all sounds so fine - I dig how the combo of hard and soft sounds in the language sing so well.

Nice arrangement as well ... verses, choruses, instrumental breaks, fills and accents ... all good.

All in all, I really do love it. It's moving, grooving, light, happy and yet not trivial. it's almost something I would suggest to pop lovers cus it's got the feel of lighthearted romance and maybe even some balmy summer night fun.

Good stuff. Love to hear more and will love to hear this again and again. Keep it up.
