Enbe - Theory of jazz (PL)

Jazz beat manoeuvres

Theory of jazz is Enbe's third release. After the 2002's Jedna Milosc and 2004's Tone Mixtures, 2007 sees this Krakow-based artist dedicate an album mainly to jazz and hip-hop sounds.

Inspired by artists such as David Benoit, Billy Caldwell and Pat Metheny, (among others), going through these 12 tracks and 22 something minutes is like opening an old safe and discovering a pile of precious vinyl wonders and start playing them endlessly.

This Theory is impregnated with jazz samples and hip-hop beats, minimal funk inspirations, cabaret big bands tunes and orchestral driven rock guitar riffs. On an album mainly instrumental, True and Wonder About Myself make the difference by being the only two tracks to feature vocals. The other ten speak for themselves, with the beats setting up the pace.

As part of the duo Graffika, we shall see him (together with Luksus vel Dawid) release this year Evvia l'Arte, their second album.

Released on 16Wersow, this album can be downloaded for free, right here.

"In my opinion, each track out of this album has a story to tell, and thanks to its instrumental form, everybody can interpret it personally"
