Muze PNote This compilation featuring remixes of tunes from the vaults of one of the premier '50s and '60s jazz labels varies in tone from the thumping house of the Dorfmeister Con Madrid reworking of Willie Bobo's "Spanish Grease" to the ethereal tones of Thievery Corporation's re-imagining of Astrud Gilberto's "Who Needs Forever?." Tricky performs his usual impenetrable sleight-of-hand on the Billie Holiday classic "Strange Fruit," giving the terrifying imagery of a Southern lynching an appropriately dark, disturbing feel, while in contrast Sarah Vaughan's "Summertime" is given a reggae bassline that percolates under the song's languid string arrangement.
Muze PNote The brace of Nina Simone cuts ("Feelin' Good" and "See-Line Woman") are given the appropriate updated R&B treatment, while the other Billie Holiday track, "Don't Explain," treats the singer's voice as an adjunct to a musical experiment. Although some of the originals find themselves submerged beneath multi-layered waves of electronica, there's enough here of interest to make this an exploration well worth investigating.

Engineer: Jeff Chestek; Steve Christian; Steven Barkan

Professional Reviews

Entertainment Weekly (5/3/02, p.86)
- "...[Verve shows] how much DJ-jazz vocal fusion can offer..."

Q (May 2002, p.125)
- 4 out of 5 stars - "The jazz label's first modern makeover works surprisingly well....potent voices, lush setting."

CMJ (5/13/02, p.4)
- "...Breezy grooves that pay homage to some of the finest singers and instrumentalists of the 20th century..."

JazzTimes (7-8/02, p.119)
- "...The appeal of this CD has less to do with the music - though some of these reinterpretations are musically excellent - and more to do with the surprise of hearing timless voices like Ella Fitzgerald, Carmen McRae, Dinah Washington...and especially, Billie Holiday in modern-day contexts..."

Vibe (June 2002, p.155)
- 4 out of 5 - "...The label opened its storied vault to today's hippest knob-twirlers, whose reinterpretations soar above bargain-basement expectations..."

Mojo (Publisher)
(5/02, p.110)
- "...Extraordinary..."
