In Between

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Piotr Orlov
Founding members of Berlin's Sonar Kollektiv, the six multi-instrumentalists/producers/DJs who form Jazzanova are after a new, more adult experience in dance music. Since 1997, they've been releasing wildly popular 12"s and pumping out multitudes of silky-smooth remixes with aesthetics that hook in to the very elements their name implies: melodic jazz-chord progressions underpinned by bossa nova-infected house rhythms. That formula is at once taken to an extreme and turned on its head on In Between, the group's full-length debut. Be sure, whatever body rocking is done to In Between will be of the head-nodding variety -- these are gorgeously produced down-tempo tracks, ...

Since 1997, they've been releasing wildly popular 12"s and pumping out multitudes of silky-smooth remixes with aesthetics that hook in to the very elements their name implies: melodic jazz-chord progressions underpinned by bossa nova-infected house rhythms. That formula is at once taken to an extreme and turned on its head on In Between, the group's full-length debut. Be sure, whatever body rocking is done to In Between will be of the head-nodding variety -- these are gorgeously produced down-tempo tracks, not dance-floor stomps. This is a future-sound-of-jazz record made by hip-hop fans: 9 of the disc's 17 tracks feature vocalists -- including Philly poetess laureate Ursula Rucker and soulful stirrer Vikter Duplaix -- turning on abstract rhymes, modern R&B flavors, and wisdom-infused spoken-word wishes. The music underneath is a swirl of high-timbre, big band instruments, cut and recut into lush layers, and rhythmic thrusts that pulsate and chill out with minimal notice but are infinitely ready to suck you in at any moment. Chances are, if there's a hipster martini lounge near you, you'll be hearing much of In Between pumping out of it quite soon.
All Music Guide - John Bush
Though Jazzanova's underground credibility and respect among fellow artists never wavered during the late '90s, the German six-piece waited a long time to release a proper full-length reportedly, it required five years of recording. In Between certainly proves the wait was worth it; the collective has not only a Teutonic efficiency for creating complex, precise, detailed beat tracks -- recalling the earthier side of house, hip-hop, and jazz fusion -- but also the wisdom to focus away from music that sounds like it came out of a laboratory. On the surface, "No Use" is just another smooth acid jazz number with a sensuous female vocal and a depth-plumbing bassline; in the hands of Jazzanova, though, it's transformed into a work of real beauty, an impeccable production with countless touches embellishing the percussion in a way that few acts have been able to do Nuyorican Soul and 4hero are really the only others in the same league. "The One-Tet," a rap track, features a pair of battling drum breaks and glorious stuttered effects over the awed rapping of Capitol A unsurprisingly, the production overwhelms the vocal. Beside providing the house and acid jazz equivalent of Kruder & Dorfmeister's sublime deconstructions of dub and hip-hop, the Jazzanova revolution focuses squarely on the drum. Piano, Rhodes keyboards, and acoustic guitar are mostly untouched, along with the songwriting and structure; the percussion and programming, however, are forward-thinking to the point of incomprehension. The only problem here is the length: as usually befalls an ambitious dance record to say nothing of one that was years in the making, In Between is easily twice as long as it should be. One hint: program out tracks seven through 13, but leave in nine and 11.

    Really Close To Perfect

    This is my first exposure to the eclectic rhythms of Jazzanova. I've read other reviews which spawned my curiosity and have now become a fan after listening to "In Between". This album is one smooth ride from beginning to end. I "L.O.V.E" everything from track 1 to 17. There was "No Wasted Time". Be careful driving with "In Between" playing in your vehicle. You'd be late and have driven further than you planned.

    revitalizing fusion jazz.

    The genious and diversity of jazzanova lacks comparesment in modern electronica/jazz. Their fresh and experimental sounds not only chalenge your own ability to understand and follow the mystical beats and wicked chords, but it really hits you in the heart, track by track. Here you`ll find smooth, tranquil melodies, such as "hanazono" and "keep falling", and gutt-punching funkyness on "the one-tet", a superb hip-hop / Jazz fusion. In short, a brilliant album, that will give you hours of joy, and one or two rythmical challenges along the way... I advice you all to get this masterpiece really fast. No regrets, guaranteed!
