Editorial Reviews

The brand new album from electro-jazz group Four80East, Roll On follows
their chart-topping 2007 album En Route with the studio duo s signature
grooves and in-the-pocket production savvy. Four80East is the brainchild of
Toronto-based remix producers Tony Grace and Rob DeBoer (collectively known
as Boomtang). Inspired by the acid jazz/groove movement that was flourishing
in the United Kingdom, they launched their Four80East concept in the late 90s
as a cool, creative side project geared towards a loose, improvisational dance
vibe, and over the last decade, as chill music established itself as a genre of its
own, their jazz-inflected urban trance music became a global phenomenon.

Let me say I have all of Four80East's albums and I was excited about getting this one, but the excitement faded rapidly after a couple of listens.

Well, it was bound to happen - a group can't always be churning out "A" material. Just looking at the cover, I thought I was going to get some retro-70's-bass-driven-quasi-disco-groove-funk -- and there is some of that, but not nearly enough.

What is odd about this album is there is one tune that irritates the hell out of me. "After All This Time" (track #6) has a great tune and beat but it's totally ruined by this breathy repeating trilling flute that once my ears focus on it -- the only thing I can think of is grabbing this annoying woodwind and beating the life out of it.

Most of the tracks are so-so. A couple are above average ("Back in Five", "While the City Sleeps"), but still not what I had come to expect.

If this is your first Fou80East purchase, I suggest you go with "Nocturnal", "The Album" or "EnRoute" -- in that order. "Round 3" next and last -- "Roll On."

Like many other fans I chanced upon this group listening on our local smooth jazz outlet. I caught a radio show airing the complete "Nocturnal" album soon after its debut in 2000. I was hooked, and I've purchased each new Four80East offering as it's become available.

I agree with a previous reviewer in that the first track seems out of place among the others, but only in respect to the musical mood it creates. It's playful as opposed to the much more serious aspect of the other nine selections. Nevertheless, it's enjoyable, with a bouncy 70's Kool & the Gang feel suggested by the album cover art. The second track "Loosey Goosey" appears to tell the listener, enough fun & games, time to buckle down and get to work to a funky-cool walking bass line. The third track has a bit of a "live" feel to it initially with an audience clapping and cheering while the song gets underway. Any fan of Level 42's early music will truly enjoy this song; along with Nocturnal's "On the Strip" and En Route's title track, it could have been lifted whole and breathing from an early 80's Level 42 session. "Just Passing Through" is a straight-out chill piece, laid-back, ultra-smooth and relaxing, with a touch of vintage Crusaders. "Shot in the Dark" cranks it up a bit with a gutsier, grittier sound. For some reason this song reminds me of an urban remake of "Starsky & Hutch" as it were, which could star Laurence Fishburn and Wesley Snipes as the kick-ass detectives (and Cedric the Entertainer as Huggy Bear). "After All This Time" is a great road tune, an attribute of much of Four80East's music, and segues well into "Race to the Moon", hands-down the hippest song on the album.

Let me just say, I love four80east. Easily my favourite band. I started with largely downbeat album Nocturnal, and moved on to their other offerings. Naturally, I had to pick up the latest CD to add to my collection.

Now usually f80e plays music you can crank very loud . . . and that tradition largely continues here . . . except the first song. The first song is, uh, a little too "happy" I guess. Not a real interesting groove, way too bright and hard to listen to loud. Needless to say, I was extremely disappointed . . . but not for long.

Loosey Goosey squashed any misgivings I had about the album . . . solid bass line, sweet sounding organ, what's not to love!

I'd love to say it was all golden from there, but Shot in the Dark really irritated me. I don't know if it was the loud "spike" in sound and regular intervals (the "shot," no doubt), or the cheesy sounding (Keyboard?) effects at the start, but it's not that great . . .

Once again, though, after one I didn't like, came one I liked, After All This Time is a good track that somewhat reminded me of the Nocturnal album.

Toward the end is where this album is really great though . . . through track 7 I really liked a couple, and didn't like a couple, with a few in the middle . . .

Track 8, "While the City Sleeps" is excellent. This made the album worth purchasing all by itself. If you're buying just single songs, you need to buy this one. The piano solo towards the middle sounds flat out amazing. Too bad this one isn't the one that plays on the radio. I think it'd make a better impression.

Track 9 is alright (intro is a little long, but it builds up nicely)

and Track 10 is another standout. On first listen this was my favourite track.

The baddest techno-funk-jazz-dance band around - Four80East - is back with their fifth and best CD to date. "Roll On" picks up just where their last offering "En Route" left off. In fact, they could have titled this CD "En Route II" because the two albums are very similar in style and content, except that "Roll On" takes it to a much higher level.

Four80East's sound is always unique and captivating and appeals to fans from all over the music spectrum. If you're into house music, you'll dig the title track which gets the groove "rolling" with a strong steady house beat and funky gut-plucking bass riffs. "One Night Only" is a nice dance track, while "Never The Same Way Twice" has a retro/house sound. If you like jazz, you'll love "Just Passing Through" with the soprano sax, muted trumpet and syncopated beats. For the techno-heads, check out "Shot In The Dark" and "Race The Moon". For easy listening and chillaxing, there's "After All This Time", "While The City Sleeps" and "Back In 5". "Loosey Goosey" gives you that down-home Memphis vibe with gritty guitar licks, cool tenor sax and groovy organ (reminds you of Booker T. & the MG's).

There are no best tracks here; however I am compelled to hit the repeat button on "Loosey Goosey", "Just Passing Through" and "While The City Sleeps". "Roll On" is just great music no matter how you slice it. If you're new to Four80East, here's a great place to start, then work your way backwards to their previous albums. If you're already a fan, then you know exactly what I'm talkin' `bout. This music will captivate you in ways you never imagined. Roll On!
