I'm surprised about the mixed reviews. This tune is gorgeous. The squelchy stabs and traveling bassline get me going every time.

And what happens halfway through? A live Rhodes jam of unfathomable soulfulness, that's what. Real Jazz.

Moodymann's productions are always a patchwork of ideas and influences. Sometimes the alchemy blossoms in something great, sometimes it doesn't work that good and you feel a bit frustrated that such brilliant moments don't expand into fully accomplished tracks. As in LPs like Silentintroduction or Forevernevermore, the Music in "I'd Rather Be Lonely" comes out of nowhere, twice, and returns to it as if it never happened. But these two instants are two flashes of genius.

The version of KDJ 36 that has just been released is quite different from the test pressing released in April. Added to it are live drums and a fierce bassline, which give it a fuller sound. A nicely reworked version.

Only a small run of white labels was done for KDJ 36. I heard right from the source that Kenny isn't releasing this record as he wasn't satisfied with the results, but is going to rework it and then possibly release it.
