Review by Mellotron Storm
3 stars What drew me to this album was the fact that Roine Stolt, Jonas Reingold and former FLOWER KINGS drummer Zoltan Csorsz were involved in making this Jazz / Fusion album.These guys are such good players I thought it would probably be a very good record, and besides it would be interesting to hear them play in this style.The album cover sort of visualizes what we hear on this album. It's like a street party with so many sounds involved including percussion and congas. The closest reference might be WEATHER REPORT's "Heavy Weather" album. While this is a good album it's too light for my tastes. I wish there was some fuzz or atmosphere or experimentation. It's just too smooth, especially the sax that does nothing for me here and hence the "Heavy Weather" reference. "Waterfront Migration" is light with a beat and sax standing out.This is catchy but not my thing. "Ode To Joe" is where they slow things down. Lots of sax leads. It does pick up some before 3 minutes. "Capetown Traffic" is much better as it has more of a Fusion vibe. And yes There is Fender Rhodes too. Sax, bass and percussion then start to lead as it lightens unfortunately. It's still good though.

"Downbeat Dakar" turns funky with sax, percussion, drums and a collage of sounds.This recalls Herbie Hancock. "The Lava Juggler" has lots of bass, drums and percussion as sax plays over top. Keyboards lead after 2 minutes. Great sound a minute later then the guitar comes in around 4 minutes. "Kilimanjaro Secret Brew" is really good because they at least add some atmosphere. "The Can Robots" is catchy with some great sounding guitar finally. It's funky after 3 minutes. "Children Of The Future" opens with piano as it builds. Piano only a minute in then it builds again. Guitar and drums lead 5 minutes in then it's time for the sax to lead.

I wish they had been more daring. I feel that this album is just too safe.

3 stars 3.5 really

When I heared this album 2 years ago I said to myself is Wheater Report still alive!!! I guess not, but what this band named 3rd Electric World offer here is a great tibute to the glory days when Weather Report was at the pick of their career (Black market, Heavy weather era). A bunch of world known and skilful musicians are involved here, all are top notch to the instruments they play, Roine Stolt, Jonas Reingold , Lalle Larsson, Dave Weckl, Zoltan Czörsz and little known to me Karl-Martin Almqvist. The CD didgipak format released in 2009 at Jonas Reingold label simply named Reingold comes with a great cover art that goes hand in hand with the music inside. Jazz fusion like in the mid to late '70's with lots of sax interludes beside traditional instruments, some congas added to give a unique atmosphere, this album named Kilimanjaro secret brew was a pleasent ride for me. Because I'm a fan of Weather Report , this album was instantly accepted by me, catchy passages, groovy bass line, some great keyboards coming from one of the most talend keybordist in last decade, and inventive druming. Maybe the creativity of the music and overall arrangements bring nothing new in this scene, but I don't think this release really disappoints at all. Pieces like Capetown traffic is instant catchy and I could swear that this album was made in the glory days of jazz fusion '70's. I like very much the bass lines and how easy Jonas Reingold handle the instrument, he can plays aswell very good in a progressive metal band like An endless sporadic as here, quite diffrent typs of music, and very diffrent then Karmakanic and The Flowers King aswell, in each band he is quite special and very confident in his abilities as musician. Back to the album, I really like what I've heared here, is by no means groundbreaking, but is pleasent from start to finish and I like this kind of jazz fusion a lot. Musicianship is top notch, if they work little bit on creativity and inventivness zone on their next album if there will be one in the future, then for sure they can add me as a fan. 3.5 stars
