Editorial Reviews

If you like jazz (and not just jazzy grooves) there are only a few acts outside the established jazz community that deliver the true spirit of the "blue notes". We dare to say that Povo (meaning "people" in Portuguese) is on of these rare acts. With a cool blend of Scandinavian live jazz and programmed rhythms they have already made many friends around the world after their releases on the Raw Fusion label.

Povo is a duo consisting of Lars Vissing and Anders Peter Andreasen. They both reside in the Danish capitol Copenhagen, which is well documented as a city where jazz had many bright moments during the early days of jazz. While Lars is one of Denmark’s leading jazz musicians/producers Anders has been living the jazz life since the late 80’s as a record collector, DJ and club promoter. Together they form an impressive alliance where Lars experience as jazz musician and Anders knowledge of the "new" jazz scene will help them to cross any boundaries. The Povo sound is already supported by some of the biggest names in the jazz/dance industry like Gilles Peterson, Koop, Nicola Conte, Jazzanova and Kyoto Jazz Massive.

After over a year in the studio Povo are now finally ready with their debut album. Expect an open-minded selection whith everything from melancholic vocal compositions, deep modal tracks and storming jazz dancers. Even though they might cross in to soul, Latin, fusion or even pop territories there is one thing you can be sure of…Povo are 100% jazzin’!!!

Format:Audio CD
As a keen purchaser of 'world' dance and electronica collections, I discovered Povo on a quite superb collection called 'Inside Scandinavia', a two volume series of beats and dance tracks from the best of the Scandinavian house/jazz scene. Povo stood out as being worthy of further investigation, so I went for this with some confidence and was rewarded with one of the most satisfying listening experiences for some time. Tracks 'Good & Bad', 'We are Povo' and 'Million Ways' stand out from memory, with some of the sexiest vocals ever adding to the immense sense of well being that this beautifully crafted suite of jazz grooves delivers so efortlessly.

It's accessible jazz, that crosses over from house/dance/lounge with maturity and deep musical integrity. Can't wait for the next CD of work from this hugely talented duo.
