Amazing album. Such a high level of understanding between these musicians.
So many different colours and landscapes are created by the group!

This guy is amazing. His contributions to funk influenced jazz music and his contributions to bass playing in general are enormous.

I really really dig this! Very fresh new ways of improvisation + electronic music.

Comparing Floating Points with Cobblestone Jazz is like comparing David Beckham's brain (Cobblestone.. ) with Einstein's.

Fabulous album. Some real, real sweet tracks on this. Very well arranged too.
But of course it's mrs. Brown who really puts her soul in these songs.
The end of the title track is one of the many examples of her extraordinary singing on the album.

This is an astonishing recording. Thematically, rhythmically, technically, it's just amazing!
It's hard to find because of the ECM label, it's definetely material for a much, much greater audience.

This is a fantastic album. A must have for all rhythm&blues, and jazz listeners. Dizzy Gillespie does a great job backing Carmen McRae, who's in great form. Her songs are so intimate, she is really giving everything this night.
