I don't know what some of you people are smoking, but this stuff is great.
B
The precise production of the music, the depth of structure in the instrumentation, and the fusion of sounds speaks clearly for itself.
A. the Silent
None of the lyrics on In Between are great poetry, although Capitol A's rapping is really very good.

I live in Los Angeles where the local NPR radio station KCRW plays a lot music you cannot hear on any other outlet. They have been supprorting Jazzanova since I moved out here five years ago, but with the release of In Between, it has become obvious that the d.j.'s over at KCRW (no program director's since its non-profit) are really in love with this release.
So I went online and listened to a couple excerpts and really liked what I heard. I bought the album. Now with that said. I noticed that the two negative reviews of this album below both judge the merits of this album based on previous work by Jazzanova. Now this is pretty silly from a rational standpoint, but most of us who become fans a particular musician are usually guilty of this. We like the artist for whatever reason if they go in another artistica direction, we often cannot be detach ourselves from our expectations and give an objective listen to the material. I think this is the mistake made by the two negative reviews below.
There is so much wonderful stuff to groove to in this album. I come more from an informed hip hop and jazz background so the world of electronica is something I am not very knowledgeable about. I know how difficult it can be to listen to someone gush about the genius of some guy who has gotten mainsteam exposure doing what is considered banal for his genre. So if this album by Jazzonova is par for the Electronica course than I can only kick myself that I did not find out sooner. But gut feeling is that it is a standout album and its diverse musical array probably puts it out of the context of one subgenre as there are influences from downtempo, broken beat, hip hop, drum & bass, soul, and of course jazz among other things.

About four years ago, Jazzanova formed in Berlin and released its first EP "Caravelle". The reaction was good, it had a smooth sound, long melodies, and shifting shuffling complex rhythms. Since then, the group has been its own cottage industry. Starting a music label (Jazzanova Compost Records), a multi-media artist collective (Sonar Kollectiv), five sublabels, several releases by members under different pseudonyms (Boskoe, Pathless, and Extended Spirit),a compilation of obscure Polish jazz, and a 2 disc set of remixes. The remix compilation received rave reviews, giving the group confidence to spend time on this album.
The sound here is a unique fusion of several musical modes. Stuttering hip-hop meet Brazillian beats, Jazz, Broken-beat, even techno synthesizers. A major hip-hop influence arises in the opening track "l.o.v.e. you & I" with classic break beats and recognizable melodies, with vocal samples on top. The group supposedly spent six months making that song. Two other tracks feature rapping on them, positive stuff, no bragging or obnoxious thug business. Unlike their remixes, several tracks feature full vocals, vikter duplaix is a talented vocalist who you may hear from in the future. The instrumental tracks are the group's strength. These qualify as jazz, but not the terrible stuff you would hear on your local "lite jazz" radio station. No unbearable saxaphone solos, absolutely no kenny g influence.
Of the 17 tracks, 5 are short interludes, most of the songs are five to eight minutes in length. The group uses the time to build up the tracks, complex drum patterns grow into the songs, and melodies are built up. The music here does not sound like it is based on samples, it's far too organic in timbre. This is definetly good for the patient listener, no song here is radio fodder. Recommended for someone who wants jazz that won't get beat up by other music.

To say that this music is a masterpiece in mediocrity is complete and total nonsense. The precise production of the music, the depth of structure in the instrumentation, and the fusion of sounds speaks clearly for itself. This music has nothing to do with 'trying' to do anything.
Jazzanova, six talented cats from Berlin, are recognized around the world for their continuous ability to transmit such innovation and technical precision in their music. Not only is the production precise, it is spiritually uplifting and inspiring. These points are recognized by individuals across the globe who dedicate their lives to music, such as the infamous Gilles Peterson,Jazzy Jeff and a host of other cats who will participate in remixing this music.
This music is blatantly exceptional,pooling exceptional artists from across the face of the planet, but don't take my word for it. RECOGNIZE! and listen.

This album took be by surprise, for I almost forgot that this six-man collective had released their debut album in 2002, after a collection of great singles tracks and remixes.
If you're expecting some kind of DJ Shadow knock off, click to RJD2. If you want to how how complex electronic-based music can be, purchase this. What I like is how they jump around throughout. If they wanted, they could easily take over the charts with the soul track "No Use", easily better than what is getting mainstream airplay these days. Then you have "Hanazono", a powerful jazz song where the tempo changes from 11/12 to 3/4 to 5/6 in less than five minutes, and it keeps on getting better. There are club songs, hip-hop, a bit of spoken word courtesy of Ursula Rucker (who always manages to educate and ridicule at the same time with finesse), among others. But this is a Jazzanova album, not a mere collaboration project, and one wonders why a group like this has not broken big in the States. Perhaps it's for the better, because one Jazzanova is better than ten other knockoffs. The intensity of this album builds and builds, and one is almost left out in the cold when the last song feels a bit anti-climatic. I think it was designed that way, as a way to repeat the experience over and over. For me, this went beyond my expecations.
