Rhapsody & Computer E.P. is the second release of that french duet. After Mad in November 2012, that project starts an age of collaborations for the Jezz.
The first track, Rhapsody & Computer is a kind of Downtempo with Classical influences melt up with electronic sounds. In second comes California Widow, wich is the succesfull realisation of a collective work between the Jezz At Home, the jazz pianist PAC and the producer/singer Luky U. The result of that collaboration is a slow, deep track, between Dub and Jazz. The third composition, You Drive Me Crazy, was the perfect occasion to invite the guitar player Grand Daddy Double Woo to play his rock sound on the most lively song of the E.P.

The first remixer is Miekky Vij, a huge electronic music admirer, who deliver a deep sound, made of underground samples, analog synthesizers and percussions of all kinds, which results in a mix between electronic music, ambient, down tempo and abstract hip-hop. Pending his debut E.P., Miekki Vij made a stunning remix of California Widow.

Luky U is a photographer, movie maker and music producer. he used to be for several years the lead singer of the funk/rock band The Daffs. Due to a fad for Ableton Live, his style turned to a more abstactive direction. His debut album « From J to C » is an experimentation between rock, soul and abstract Hip-hop, released on the french label Apostat. His edit of California Widow brings a subtil touch of psychedelic rock and low tempo to the E.P.

The third remixer is One track Mind, a classical performance pianist who work on electronic fusion projects. With a combination of keyboards, saxophone and samples, OTM creates multi genre music that ranges from upbeat to easy listening. Her Rhapsody & Saxophone melt her control of the saxophone with a breakbeat rythme.

Faithfull to his musical conviction House/Techno, Horstmeier takes part in that project as a Swarm Prod founder member. The productor of Feel Good (released on 2013 on WellDone Music, label of Marlon Hoffstadt) sign here a remix full of subtetly and delicacy.

Who else than Georges Cauld, Radio host, graphic designer, event organizer, Dj, producer and active member of Swarm Prod to make the last remix, going on his serie of the Ugly Edit. Rhapsody & Computer doesn’t escape to the rule, and conclude the E.P. on a Detroit, Techno note.

From http://www.cdbaby.com

LR-60 released a new album "Coldest Memories" in June 2008 and another project "Ultraviolence" in June 2009, says LR-60’s Skip Warren. The newest CD "Cosmic Serenades" is scheduled for release in April, 2011 after a year and half in production.

2008’s “Coldest Memories” opened wide the floodgates for the presentation to the world of LR-60’s atmospheric, soaked-in-hooks style. “Coldest Memories” brought forward LR-60’s captivating conglomerate of post-modern jazz, trip-hop, dub, chillout and so much more. LR-60 is professional trumpet player Skip Warren, who found the fulfillment of a vision when he discovered – via online contact –electronic artist Christian Denis – aka Mr. Moods. Through their correspondence they discovered that they shared the same musical goals and tastes.
Warren’s extensive jazz, blues and soul experience perfectly dovetailed with Mr. Moods’ electronic excursions. Their partnership combines the organica of LR-60’s trumpet with Mr. Moods’ electronic ambience-summoning.
LR-60 toured with the late “Disco Lady” Johnnie Taylor for four years in the late 70s and early 80s and also played with the late Z.Z. Hill for a year. He toured with blues legend Bobby “Blue” Bland for a decade from 1981 to 1991. That connection nabbed him countless shows with B.B. King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Greg Alman, Albert King, Little Milton, Clarence Carter, Tyrone Davis, Bonnie Raitt, Willie Nelson, Wilson Pickett, Junior Walker & The Allstars, John Lee Hooker, Dr. John, Millie Jackson and James Brown – just to name a few.
He also enjoyed a stellar opportunity – recording with gospel singer Kirk Franklin on the Nu Nation Project album with noted gospel artist Fred Hammond. LR-60 has also written and recorded original compositions for CNN

Officiel Myspace :

Après 3 albums contre la pollution et la déforestation, Pic de Pollution, Ghost Forest et sa suite remixée, le collectif éco-citoyen UHT° revient dans une titanesque messe pour notre planète bleue.

Respect des fonds marins, désastre écologique des marées noires, gâchis de l’eau, impureté des océans, autant d’émotions traduites en ode par les chorus sombres des instruments, les envolées free jazz ou les scratches solistes et les lâchés de thèmes évocateurs. Une flute limpide qui donne des frissons jaillissant sur un rythme en ébullition, un saxo tonifiant rencontrant une clarinette pétillante, un trombone coulant sur une basse qui brise la glace : entre poésie et furie UHT° repousse les limites de l'acoustique, mélange les sons longue conservation, électro, hip hop, drum’n’bass, symphonique et jazz pour nous livrer un nouvel album H2O fluide et cristallin.

Réunit autour des piliers Dj ClicK DA producteur et Niño Korta aux platines, se joignent Ludivine Issambourg croisée aux côtés de Wax Tailor aux flûtes, Thomas Julienne le contrebassiste de United Fools, la folie free du saxophoniste Franck Dadure (The Fakir), Daniel Zimmermann du quintet progressif DPZ au tuba et trombone et pour la touche traditionnelle Émile Calmé au xiao bambou chinois.

Du souffle pour l’énergie, de la chaleur incendiaire pour les programmations et les bois, un tracklisting tantôt doux et salé, pour un résultat encore plus inspiré et lyrique qui réveillera les eaux dormantes…

En dix ans, plusieurs albums et remixes, le collectif a su se renouveler, innover tout en restant original ; des nuances improvisées du jazz au charme de la pop. Ces performers hors pair ont depuis toujours aimé organiser les rencontres et confronter leurs talents aux musiciens tels Akosh S, Gnawa Njoum, Patrick Muller, Julien Loureau et d’autres, jusqu’à la tournée précédente avec Eric Truffaz au festival Jazz à St Germain, ou encore Nguyen Le aux Ateliers Jazz de Mayenne. En live ils passent maintenant du trio au quintet et nous livre un set organique d’une pureté toute renouvelée.

By 70's Baby Early 80's Child from http://90something.blogspot.com

Waiwan was one of the prodigal sons of Manchester trip hop and nu jazz scene of the 90s that gave us so many great artists, starting with Aim and ending with.. ehm, Waiwan. His only self-produced album Distraction was released on short-lived Autonomy label, whose roster included only him and The Philadelphia Bluntz (will post their album Blunted At Birth soon). The lack of strong distribution channel probably caused that it was soon forgotten despite his huge single hit Goddess. Which is a shame because Distraction is a small gem packed with fat beats, deep and dark soundscapes and enchanting vocals (featuring Veba, The Muse of Manchester music producers). If you enjoyed the Grand Central albums posted here earlier, I swear you'll fall for this one too.

Tracklist :
1. The Deep
2. Nightmare
3. Ain't Easy
4. Yesterday
5. Goddess
6. Blue
7. Hindsight
8. Filtered Funk
9. Revenge
