About this item

For Volume 3, Jazz N Palms lets loose another set of expertly reworked, retouched and edited tracks often heard drifting over the entrancing poolside of the iconic Pikes Hotel. Jazz music fused sartorially with latin, funk, rock and international sounds to be enjoyed under the palms and the sun of the Mediterranean sea. Opener 'Kite Park' sees JNP make maximum use of the tension between cool and calming chords and chunky percussion, while 'Puerto Rico' is all about that hip-twisting latin style. On the B-side, "La Ola" lets loose with the cocktail lounge vibraphone, love boat strings and low slung bass, before the late 80s / early 90s fusion of 'Neon Landscape' splits the difference between New Jack Swing, Club Soul and FM synthesis. Possibly saving the best until last, JNP goes IN on the B3, bringing the full force of 'Afrotropic's' big bassline, hot horns and chanted vocals to the dancefloor. No surprises that this guy gets to warm-up the monthly exclusive Ronnie Scott's (London) jazz concerts held at Pikes.
