Temporarily Out Of Stock
It's been more than a few years since we've heard from Ludovic "St Germain" Navarre – and in that time, he's really found a way to add a lot of fresh elements to his music! Unlike the jazz-sample mode that first got St Germain his big international start, this set's got a much more rootsy vibe – with contributions from a host of African musicians, at a level we never would have expected on earlier albums – and great use of n'goni, percussion, and snakey guitar lines in the music! The global talents aren't just thrown in for spice, either – as you might have expected from Navarre's earlier sample-based sounds – and instead, participate equally in this great hybrid of cultures that's extremely creative overall. Titles include "Sittin Here", "Real Blues", "Voila", "Family Tree", "Mary L", "Forget Me Not", and "How Dare You". LP, Vinyl record album
