"If you buy this Record Your Life will be better"... ha! I remember - that was a group called Tamperer Feat. Maya. Their big cut was "Feel It" back in 1998, a remake of the Jackson's old track.... it soared up the UK charts and they always played it at "Jelly Baby" and "The Dome" in Birmingham, England... or everywhere for that matter. Thanks for the memory!

Anyways, I've always respected Gilles Peterson as a DJ and music collector. You know that if you're picking up one of his cd's or compilations that he put together, you're bound to get some sort of mad, obscure, un-heard of track or cut in there. But then again, can you imagine his collection of vinyls and cd's? Yikes! Some people have a gift for making music and playing an instrument. GP's gift is putting the tracks together, finding them, making the connections and simply knowing music. He's done numerous series, from Trust The DJ to "The Incredible Sound of..." and this one, released a few years ago, was on a Journey's By DJ series which included other DJ's like Kevin Yost and even Coldcut.

But it's GP's that I dig. Admittedly I didn't fall for it at the first listen. But over time, it grew on me. Starting out with a sly cut remembering the name of a Jazz club and into a pure, old school track by Letta Mbulu, you'd think this would be soul. But then you have some electronica and beats added in this with Juryman and Ballistic Brothers who redid a classic old jazz track... break beat styled. Followed up nicely by some old school Buscemi then a surprisingly more commercial track, Jazzanova's "Fedime's Flight", you suddenly find yourself in break heaven. Kevin Yost's "One Starry Night" has a sound to it that reminds me of trance group Banda Sonora and "Guitarra G" that was popular back in 2001.

This is a wonderfully sassy, infectious and retro-cool sounding album in which Peterson has manged to collect a myriad of funky, jazzy and euro culture beats. Placed skillfully alongside an electic range of interesting and dynamic vocals, it is journey through many genres, styles and decades.

There is a smokey, jazzy edge throughout and reference to 50's/60's cool, spiced with salsa, samba and 90's/00's club mix cool. An upbeat but equally tranquil journey and one definitely worth taking.

Gilles Peterson is arguably one of the most knowledgable and respected voices and figures in the the U.K. Jazz, Acid Jazz, Jazz Funk & Soul-jazz scenes. Even so far as, setting up (the now sadly defunct) "Talkin Loud" label. And with myself, having personally enjoyed several clubs nights, when Mr Peterson was spinning on the decks. Let there be no doubt that the man has impeccable track selection. An almost equally highly regarded 'eclectic' DJ, who's equally at home spinning: Rare Groove, Funk, Soul, Drum 'n' Bass, Northern Soul, Samba, Jazz, Hip-Hop...and any genre that fits in-between. And with a impressive selection of compilation disks under his belt, (especially the esteemed "Worldwide" selection compilation series), who better to compile a disk that takes the listener on a aural journey???....and has such a proven track record with these sorts of albums, this should be a case for massive celebration, shouldn't it??.........(of Course it is!!!)

Gilles' Disk accurately reflects his musical tastes admirably and features several songs that I've personally heard him play in club nights (as opposed to an artist randomly selecting tracks with no relevance to their profession), with a tracklisting that leans heavily towards Latin, Samba and Acid-Jazz, and leads with the scattershot spoken word Jazz of 'Mark Murphy's - Dingwalls', and the stylish Nu-Jazz of "Jazzanova's - Fedime's Flight". The utterly sublime garage mix of "Gabriel" (feat. Roy Davis Jr), gets a deserved airing, and is refreshing to see this incredible track not just relegated to Garage/2-step compilations. And it's here that the tempo increases, by moving into breakbeat /Drum 'n' Bass territory with two "Roni Size" productions....
