Alif Tree - Clockwork (Compost)

Web: http://www.myspace.com/memorymusic
French neo jazz man Alif Tree has the distinction of being remixed by fellow jazz lover, who happens to be a reclusive underground hero named Kenneth Dixon Jr. aka Moodymann. On paper, Tree’s sound isn’t particularly close to that of Dixon Jr’s, but with the Moody one, he shares the ability to create thought provoking electronic compositions. Alif Tree tries his hand at various electronic styles on this album, but he is at his best when he goes for jazzy flavours as opposed to ‘trip hop‘ styled vocal efforts. Winners include the piano touched Au Revoir, the bubbly Mai and the feet dragging Time Stretcher. Jazzy fun with Mr. Tree.
