    Jaffa delivers some beautifully summery downtempo on his debut ELEVATOR with an unmistakeable funk running throughout. The title track, "Elevator," is so deliciously jazzy that it encourages you to kick back and sip a mint julep. It's got an organ line hat builds and builds into a wonderful frenzy. "Sneakin'" in its vocal incarnation, is a reimagining of Billie Holiday's "The Child"; as an instrumental, it's a smoky, late night session. Even the phone-call-gone-wrong track, "Star 67," has a glistening breakdown in the middle of its mysterious conversation. "Legz" goes for more Hammond organ funk. The remixes of "Elevator" by Fila Brazillia and Herbaliser both maintain the mellow vibe, but approach the melody in different ways. A marvelous album.
