ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Working at the edge of the contemporary jazz scene MOTIV mix jazz improvisation with a modern hiphop sound. Creating angular harmonies over break beats and funky drum & bass grooves, two horn players, a three piece rhythm section and the poignant lyricism of MC Cheshire Cat produce a sound and vibe recently described as:

"Funky jazz for the 21st century..." - Etherbeat.com

"An excellent jazz meets hiphop collective" - TimeOut

"They give me the same feeling I get listening to Public Enemy or Miles Davis" - detroitillharmonic

Drummer Sam Kelly from 70’s funksters Cymande and Adrian Reid, founding member of The Jazz Warriors, have both played as guests with MOTIV, reflecting the bands roots and influences. You can hear and purchase MOTIV’s music online at: www.cdbaby.com and the iTunes music store.

Great Variety
These guys have a great variety, not the junk you hear on the radio.

Jules Mascarenhas

A great blend of musical styles.
The entire selection of tunes on this album is all the kind of stuff you find on those Rebirth of Cool compilations. And that's a great blend of musical styles to be presenting. 'Switch' is the stand-out tune here for me becuase of its cheeky and wideranging composition. It steps through mellow yet slightly plaintive jazz into a kind of Groove Collective meets Roots Manuva package - but stays original. 'All Slaves' does a similar thing to good effect although replace Yusef Lateef for Groove Collective here.

Like listening to Public Enemy or Miles Davis.
They give me the same feeling I get listening to Public Enemy or Miles Davis.
