ORCHESTER PETER JACQUES - ROUND TRIP TO RIO




















Peter Jacques Orchestra for Center a subsidiary label of MPS from 1970.
First posted at OIR May 06.The review was lifted from Dusty Groove.
Another treat from MPS.This is a beautiful piece of breezy bossa from 60s Germany - a classic sound library session by pianist Pete Jacques, filled with lightly dancing rhythms, crackling acoustic percussion, and lots of cool wordless vocal bits next to the instruments! The sound is very much in the best MPS mode a mixture of jazz and easy with just the right influences from Brazil all crafted together with magnificent sound and a timeless groove that's far less cheesy than some of the American albums of this type from the time .There's a really dynamic feel to Jacques orchestrations on the set an interweaving of the understated and baroque modes going down in Brazil at the time filtered through a German postwar ideal that imagines the sound with an even cleaner vision than the original.
320 rip from the 2005 Sonorama cd reissue.

I have to say, after being associated with many Jazz blogs over the years, I found in you guys, a very "special" place..

Love the blog, and love the people - especially that guy what put it together ;-)
