Moodymann delivers once again on SILENCE IN THE SECRET GARDEN. By emphasizing the African-American roots of house music, he makes retro sound like a quaint idea: here’s the real stuff. From the jazz on “People” to the nearly beatless tones and baby cries on “Backagainforthefirsttime?” he shows that house isn’t always about making people dance. Sometimes, it’s about getting them to think on their feet. But if you want to dance, “Shine” would be the way to go, up until it drifts out on ambience (Moodymann prefers long, drawn-out outros and jams, so be prepared for that). Deepness doesn’t get darker and more sultry than “Sweet Yesterday.” If that’s not an invitation to the garden, I don’t know what is.
