This is my favourite album in 2013 so far. I listened to it nearly every day since I got it about 3 month ago and haven't got tired of it so far. The musicians of this band project are true masters of their instruments and the singer Fola Dada has a beautiful voice that creates a powerful atmosphere. The music is mostly warm and jazzy and though I'm generally not that keen on Jazz at all, I'm totally in awe of this band and their music. All the tracks on this album are ruled by the groove and the electric bass of project founder Hellmut Hattler and his over 40 years of experience with this instrument as a professional musician clearly shine through. Hattler is also the bass player of the influential German Jazz Rock band KRAAN since 1970. Warm and clear, totally precise and minimal without any wanking about - this is bass playing as its best. I played the CD to lots of my friends and especially the ones who are also musicians themselves seem to appreciate it most. If you like some tips for sample tracks I would recommend track 6-Fine Days (lots of pop appeal - my 9 year old daughter's favourite), track 1-The Kite (full of energy - my female colleague’s that I share an office with favourite) and track 7-Nirvana Club, nice and bouncy, my fave :) Give it a listen - you'll get high as a kite off this beautiful music!
