Jazzanova, a DJ collective from Germany, caught my attention
as I was listening to the Acid Jazz radio section of Last.fm. The sounds these guys make seem
to be coming from everywhere, with some jazz samples, sultry vocals and funk drum
riffs. When I read that they had done some work with poet/spoken word artist
Ursula Rucker, I knew they had something unique to offer. As soon as I get Jazzanova’s
CD “In Between” in the mail (you better believe I ordered it straight after
hearing “L.O.V.E. and You and I”), it will become the new music that I listen
to, over and over and over, while driving.
