3 stars Jarre's last album for the Disques Dreyfus label, "Sessions 2000" is a completely different and unusual release from Jarre. It's basically an ambient electronic-jazz record, a very chilling experiment that fits best for rainy afternoons or cold nights in the autumn. Jarre definitely have done better, but it's always interesting to hear the artist experiment with stuff not tried by him before on previous releases. The overall result works well, though fans may be disappointed with it at first, but it is a grower and you will discover positive sides about it very fast. The album does not have any commercial spots, but "March 23" was used on the Gdansk concert last in 2005, a good song with a relaxing trumpet line through the song. The opener, "January 24" is also a good opener and the album flows well, despite some flaws. Otherwise than that, it's not a very memorable album among fans it seems, but I think this one is a brave and unusual album from JMJ.

I'll give it 3.5/5. Mostly for fans, though not a bad album at all in my opinion. New fans should get some of his earlier works, but older fans should check it out!

Bj-1 | 3/5 |
