JAZZ: Bossa Nova, EASY LISTENING: Lounge
The Blue Planet Sound are a small handsome duo currently producing some of the handsomest yet not so small bossa sounds around. A glowing acoustic sound that is dreamy and mesmerising, classic and modern at the same time. Not hip or cool at all. For 'hip' read 'heart'; for 'cool' read 'intimate'.
Those of you who've had the good fortune to see the BPS play will recognise the core of their live sound here. PK's syncopated guitar and nature -boy vocals; Sam's multi-colored percussion effects and lazy but enchanting sax.
But like 'Make Lemonade' and 'Tiny Universe' before it 'Escape to Paradise' is tastefully trimmed with those inimitable BPS arrangements. The icing on the cake: a flutter of strings; a snatch of organ; dreamy background voices; the insinuation of a sexy scraper, all rocked from underneath by one of PK's irrestible basslines.
As with their sister act, James Beige, a recording is more, much more than the sum of it's parts and PK and Sam are craftsmen as much in the producer's seat as in front of the microphone.
They began working together in Paris in the early nineties. From there began a ten year musical odyssey which took them to Southern Europe, South America and the Far East with longer sejourns in Zürich, Barcelona, Tokyo, Hongkong and Macau.
Musically their journey was no less eclectic. From gypsy music to be-bop, from latin to trip hop PK and Sam managed to use almost any genre as a vehicle for their compositions and imaginative arrangements. But it was in the bossa nova, samba and lounge area that the BPS really came into it's own, augmenting a classic Brazilian repertoire with easy listening pearls of their own and bossa versions of songs by non-Brazilians like Jon Lucien, Roy Ayers and Burt Bacharach, each with that sparkle of Blue Planet magic.
'Escape to Paradise' is what it suggests: a window to climb through; an escape from the day-to-day; a breath of new inspiration, a shaft of sunlight in an otherwise darkened room. CD available here in cool 6-page digipak!
Watch out for other new releases on Fine Tune recordings soon.
