Yai7 It starts of charming but quickly ends boring and tiring. I was impressed much more by simpler Lofi artworks by much less known artists.

Suprisingly. It ends very sympathetically with it's revival in the last comforting soft singing track.

Andrew Jervis Easily one of the best for 2019. Such an ingenious mix of organic and electronic instruments to make an engaging and uplifting jazz record for the times (and beyond.) Typically brilliant Intl Anthem. Favorite track: Taking Flight (feat. Brandee Younger).

Jefferson_Battleship This album is so beautiful. The jazz harp is straight ear sugar. Bright horns and trippy vibes. Favorite track: Plantasy.

about

Riding the ripples of their debut single “Escalator” (which BBC’s Gilles Peterson called “a winner,” and Supreme Standards’ Tina Edwards likened to “Radiohead on a Jazz trip”), Chicago collective Resavoir return with their first full length effort. The self-titled album presents a juicy suite of elegantly-orchestrated lo-fi jazz instrumentals germinated from home recording experiments by the group’s producer/arranger Will Miller.

Applying a compositional approach attributable to his experience producing hip-hop beats as much as his studies at Oberlin Conservatory, Miller built melodic sketches on foundations of samples & loops before bringing pieces to the group for collective development. After integrating recordings of the full band into his home-produced impressions (not unlike IARC predecessors Jeff Parker and Makaya McCraven), he over-dubbed another dozen friends into the mix (including Brandee Younger, Sen Morimoto, Carter Lang, Knox Fortune and Macie Stewart) before finalizing the arrangements.

In Miller’s modest editing room, Resavoir grew from experiment into epic opus recalling the lush, psychedelic soul jazz orchestrations of David Axelrod & Charles Stepney… but in the sampled-laden style of Yesterday’s New Quintet, Broadcast, or Thundercat, with a lyrical affinity for minimalism & texturalism, like trumpeter/composers Jon Hassell & Justin Walter.
