Specialists/collaborators reviews

snobb
For some last years London's burgeoning jazz scene often associates with rebellious street-wise Afrobeat, Caribbean rhythms, electronics and hip-hop influenced fusion. Still not every artist there sounds such way.

Self-taught pianist,composer and producer Alfa Mist just released his second album which obviously being a part of about mentioned movement covers quite different areas. Proclaimed by artist as "battles with self and the societal pressures" product in real life "Structuralism" contains comfortable lite fusion recalling American smooth jazz.

There are lot of strings on some songs, two female guest vocalists, beautifully-melancholic sax soloing and modern slick production, plus hip-hop elements, but resulting music is all but rebellion. In fact, almost any composition fits quite well for use as soundtrack to Sunday morning Travel TV broadcast.

Still, few dramatic moments save the album of being openly boring so it could be recommended for those trying to escape from disturbing reality to comfortable (and sterile) pinkish-greenish lounge.
