Review - Spirit of the Sun

Artist: Kyoto Jazz Massive

Spirit of the Sun
Label: Compost
Media: CD
Format: Album
WorkNameSort: Spirit of the Sun

Although the Japanese have long been capable of churning out intelligent and soulful house music, KJM's thickly detailed style has long put them at the forefront of the movement. Fully realized and organic, these tunes polish "nu-jazz" to a hyperstylish shine without losing any of the very real humanity behind the tracks. Too often this style of music gets bogged down with overplaying and diva-driven histrionics, but "Spirit of the Sun" takes a much more holistic approach, injecting a healthy dose of CTI-style groove.
