On their self-titled album, The Mighty Bop emerge from the darker recesses of jazz into the sun, going for bright and peppy rhythms and melodies. The track “Sunshine Magic” pretty much explains it all. “Too Deep” goes for St. Germain-style jazz house, while “Tell Me” is a Burt Bacharach track exported to France. Though their new uptempo direction is done with quality and care, it sounds a little too familiar to that entire genre. “Summer Session,” for instance, sounds as if it could have been done by anyone at all. But “I Go Crazy” shows its own personality, an ompah-jazz track perfectly suited for cabaret singers around the world, and “On the Moon” is a seaside vacation on a lunar beach. It’s a good way to end an album.
