Editorial Reviews

Mentored by Giles Peterson, the six member Berlin-based DJ collective Jazzanova has created a compelling fusion of musical genres on their 2008 studio album, Of All The Things. Jazzanova has built a strong and loyal following among DJs, musicians, and music fans around the globe. They have leant their talents to a diverse roster of artists including Lenny Kravitz, Common, Azymuth, and Calexico. Jazzanova set out to compose an album that is interconnected, composing each track, recording live vocals and instrumentals, selecting and creating samples from tracks already created for this album. Featured vocalists include Leon Ware, Dwele, Phonte, Paul Randolph, Ben Westbeech, Jose James, and more. Jazzanova is: Alexander Barck, Claas Brieler, Jrgen von Knoblauch, Roskow Kretschmann, Stefan Leisering, and Axel Reinemer

This album combines their jazz inspired ensemble and uses pop and hip hop to create this album.
Dillos
Phonte is a very capable singer and it would be interesting to hear more of his work in this vein.
Marc Edwards
The thing I like the most about Jazzanova is they always turn me on to some really good artists.

This may not be what you expect. So check out their myspace page to preview a few tracks from this disk...

The unifying sound here harkens back to the mid-seventies--lush strings and horns, energetic beats, itchy guitars, soulful harmonies and soaring lead vocals. Some may feel that this more closely resembles Gnarls Barkley than previous Jazzanova disks, but this album could have come from no one else. A sensitive ear will recognize the Jazzanova sound buried deep within the mix. But this album isn't so much about the Jazzanova sound. It's about the songs. And the songs are wonderful--with terrific performances and fine writing.

And while this may lack some of the in-your-face dynamics and energy of the remix albums or the "In Between" CD, this new offering has a heart and soul unlike anything Jazzanova has ever done before.

To think this has been put together by a bunch of German guys... I mean what could they possibly know about Soul or Funk. Jazzanova are great at Electronica and Acid Jazz, but when you hear this you're gonna wonder why they haven't been making Soul all along.
This is one incredible album.

I've loved Jazzanova for awhile. 'In Between' is a record I must have played a thousand times and still find rewarding. When I put 'Of All The Things' on for the first time it was hard to believe what I was hearing. Essentially gone are the electronics, the break beat-ish drumming is dialed way down. What's left? An amazing soul record, half of the tracks sound like they could have come from a motown or philadelphia production decades ago: big horns, lush strings, the works, rhythms that plaster a huge smile on your face in an instant. 'Let Me Show Ya' and 'I Can See' are standout tracks for me. Thanks jazzanova!

Before you buy it, listen to it; really.

This is not the Jazzanova you know. If you enjoyed Jazzanova's earlier work, you'll find this CD does not sound like Jazzanova at all. This CD is 1960's Soul/R&B but cut in 2008. I'm not going to say it's bad, there is allot of talent in the cuts. But it is devoid of what you would expect. I just posted mine for sale used; I didn't expect this music & will have to be more careful in the future.

If your new to Jazzanova, don't judge them by this CD. Audition some of their earlier work to get a feel for what this very talented group was once about.

Of all the things Jazzanova could have done for a sophomore effort in the seven interminable years since their electro-jazz landmark In Between, they've recorded a soul record. How about that. Granted, these six German producers have been cutting their teeth on soul music and its offshoots with a baker's dozen of tasteful mixes, so the direction they've taken on their newest batch of own-productions isn't completely surprising. And yet, Of All the Things doesn't seem at first blush like the whiz-bang showstopper that people were prepared for. That's because In Between was borderline-perfect, a cosmic trip through some of the classiest electronic jazz ever committed to disc, and likeminded musicians followed in Jazzanova's footsteps as if they were the pied piper. But it's also because--and this is the key distinction between the two records--In Between pointed the way to the future of electronic listening music, while Of All the Things concerns itself almost solely with the past. Jazzanova are, in fact, in love with the past, and as we well know, love can shoot people's attention and commitment up to stratospheric levels. And it's this commitment to both their craft and doing right by their forebears that sneakily makes this record their second resounding success in a row....

Of all the eras in the history of soul music they could have catapulted us into--`60s Motown, early-'80s garage, `70s quiet storm R&B--they've chosen all of them. Jazzanova play kickball with decade-divided genres as though the lines between them simply didn't exist, seamlessly moving from hip-hop to funk to quiet storm to MOR urban jazz, all going back in a direct line to Sam Cooke and the Isley Brothers.

The thing I like the most about Jazzanova is they always turn me on to some really good artists. Fat Freddy's Drop, Calexico, Heavy, Randolph, Jose James, etc., etc. All of the things I've checked out from them have all become faves in my library without fail. They're really hip to what's good with their ear to the underground. Check 'em out if you wanna discover their taste, which I think is excellent.
