All Music Guide - John Bush
Since the advent of acid jazz in the mid-'80s, the many electronic-jazz hybrids to come down the pipe have steadily grown more mature, closer to a balanced fusion that borrows the spontaneity and emphasis on group interaction of classic jazz while still emphasizing the groove and elastic sound of electronic music. For his second album, French producer Ludovic Navarre expanded the possibilities of his template for jazzy house by recruiting a sextet of musicians to solo over his earthy productions. The opener "Rose Rouge" is an immediate highlight, as an understated Marlena Shaw vocal sample "I want you to get together/put your hands together one time", trance-state piano ...

All Music Guide - John Bush
Since the advent of acid jazz in the mid-'80s, the many electronic-jazz hybrids to come down the pipe have steadily grown more mature, closer to a balanced fusion that borrows the spontaneity and emphasis on group interaction of classic jazz while still emphasizing the groove and elastic sound of electronic music. For his second album, French producer Ludovic Navarre expanded the possibilities of his template for jazzy house by recruiting a sextet of musicians to solo over his earthy productions. The opener "Rose Rouge" is an immediate highlight, as an understated Marlena Shaw vocal sample "I want you to get together/put your hands together one time", trance-state piano lines, and a ride-on-the-rhythm drum program frames solos by trumpeter Pascal Ohse and baritone Claudio de Qeiroz. For "Montego Bay Spleen," Navarre pairs an angular guitar solo by Ernest Ranglin with a deep-groove dub track, complete with phased effects and echoey percussion. "Land Of..." moves from a Hammond- and horn-led soul-jazz stomp into Caribbean territory, marked by more hints of dub and the expressive Latin percussion of Carneiro. Occasionally, Navarre's programming sampled or otherwise grows a bit repetitious -- even for dance fans, to say nothing of the jazzbo crowd attracted by the album's Blue Note tag. Though it is just another step on the way to a perfect blend of jazz and electronic, Tourist is an excellent one.

    Lounge Music at it's best

    I heard this CD in a bar in Germany than again in Spain. Made my way to the bartendar to find out the name of the CD and he was so excited to share his find with me. I bought 2 and gave one to a friend. We constantly get compliments on this CD. I wish I could find more like this but the other recommendations don't compare. Definitely worth the money. Great listening CD for dinner parties, setting the mood and just sitting around talking.

    Sexy

    This is a fantastic CD. It took me forever to find it but I did. I let a friend borrow this CD and they described it as sexy. I listened to it after he told me that and now I see what he was saying. It is the best buy that I have ever made!

    St Germain is a ''Sure Thing''

    I've seen the music of Ludovic Navarre (alias St Germain) described by a dozen different names -- house, techno, trance -- to name just a few. Which does is fit under? Who knows...and who cares? What matters is that he produces a sound that's slick, sophisticated and soulful all at once. I first came across the cut ''Sure Thing'' in London, on a British compilation CD from the Ministry of Sound. I've been a St Germain fan ever since, and Tourist may just be his best work.

    Incredible

    I was walking through Barnes and Noble and this CD was playing. I bought it on the spot and have listened to it everyday. Perfect Sunday afternoon/Cocktail party music.

    Groove!

    A friend who loaned me this CD told me it was an example of ''house'' music. Although I've heard of the genre, I've never actually heard it. Whatever it is, this is a really nice CD with a consistent groove that makes for some head-bobbin' chillin'. It's got a '50s jazz influence but a modern beat that gets pleasantly thumpin' in some of the tracks. I had my lady over, popped in this CD, lit some candles and opened an Australian Shiraz and the combination was juuuuust fine.
