Review by snobb
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
2 stars If you still remember Michal Urbaniak's great violin fusion from 70-s, just forget it. On this album (twenty years after)he plays some electric violin and sax moments in NY-style lounge jazz. With very dance-floor rhythms, some hip-hop and soul vocals, quite nice funky bass and Latin influenced melodies.

Music is quite high quality pop-funky jazz , and has nothing in common with jazz-rock or any progressive fusion form. Even Michal solos there are more decorative, than musically attractive or interesting. Possibly, product of it's moment, this album is hardly interesting for listening. Not so bad back-up music though.
