Under the name Jazzanova is to this publication (from 2000) never released their own number, but if remix collective then let them breath of fresh air for a few years by the what rusted dance scene. He has a new and distinctive sound that developed mainly on the Brazilian bossa nova groove peace and many artists make their music have been through this collective remixes. This double-cd has all the productions together collected and is the largest dance music sensation of the year. Fits very well in the row Kruder and Dorfmeister & Fila Brazilia home. Many people will ask you what you have ... Jazzanova so.

Wow this really higlights the quality of their productions, infact I much prefer their remixes to their own tracks.

Jazzanova take jazz, soul & funk, stir them up & sling them to the future! They literally transform jazzy, downtempo tracks into futuristic anthems, with all the organic dexterity of traditional
soundstyles. The remixes are outstanding & in most cases far better than the originals (4 Hero's " As who we are not as others " is the greatest example)! Productions are meticulous, rythms pound & the whole package is plain great in its corrugated paper cover, a must have!!!

Well, I don't know if something's wrong with a person if they don't have this release; let's just say that their taste needs to be a bit more eclectic. Ever wonder why a lot of people on this site have this in their homes? Since I'm a percussion junkie, I get it. I was taken aback at how diverse these guys really can be. You will be, too, if you're a first-time listener. Best bets: all of them are top-notch; but my personal faves are 1-1, 1-2, 1-5, 2-1, 2-6, 2-9, and 2-10. I dare DJs to sneak these in their mixes in the big clubs. BTW, when's collection #2 coming?

In general, the words "remixed by Jazzanova" are a symbol of excellence. On this collection, THE REMIXES 1997-2000, Jazzanova present some of their best and brightest work, and it goes without saying that if you don't have this in your collection, something's seriously wrong with you. On the first disc, you have uptempo tracks, such as the fast breaks on 4 Hero's "We Who Are Not As Others" followed by the mid-tempo house of Marschmellows' "Soulpower" and the even harder house of Men From the Nile's "Watch Them Come." Varied and versatile: these are good things. Their mix of Karma's "High Priestess" takes an already great song into spy smoothness. The second disc focuses on the more relaxed mixes and kicks off with "Fifths" by Ski, sweet and subdued. Ursula Rucker's "Circe" is a moody siren song; Liquid Lounge's "Complete Life" swoops and dives into soul jazz; Ian Pooley's sublime "What's Your Number" gets a smooth funky groove. Their take on Soul Quality Quartet's "Toda Tersafeira" cuts up the vocals and reassembles them into an equally pleasing form. The final track takes MJ Cole's two-step classic "Sincere," and turns it deeper and more electronic. Brilliance all throughout the two discs.

If you like deep soulfull jazzy latino influenced house then this is a must buy. Put out in 2000, but here early 2003 still available at for instance htfr.com if you're interested, and you should be!!!

hats off to these guys. this album is abolute killer. full of complex tracks that twist and weave with more beats than omni trio, and more changes de la soul. it reaks of salsa and jazz, but the beats and breaks are very technical, giving a kind of "striving for the future, whilst not forgetting your roots" feel.

this epic album sounds rocks in an understated way on the dancefloor, but also is a great chill out album for home (god, i sound like a bad commercial, sorry).

best trax i would say are the What's Your Number and Amazon Adventure remixes. am still gobsmacked that they can take a great ian pooley song like that, and make it as good, if not better than the original.
