Schnabeltierli Fast and beautiful rhythms for hot summer days. My favorite is "A bout de souffle" feat. Isabelle Antena.

Peter Jones Tearing beats. Sickeningly good grooves. Leaves me wondering if I'll ever get that bossa feel in my playing... But just listen... melt into the scenes painted here. Everything that "hot" and "dirty" have ever meant is turned into music.

... And, for an aspiring drummer, the three bonus "Rhythms of..." are just... completely compelling listening. Favorite track: Kind Of Cool feat. Bella Wagner.

john greenwood Funky jazz and soul fusion that leaves me happy and almost thinking i can dance. this is one of those go to albums when I need a lift. There is a lot of power in the little bit of feel good packed tightly into this great set. Favorite track: Sugar Cane feat. Pat Appleton.

Following the smashing success of "The JuJu Orchestra", the creative team around Oliver Belz has come up with the next step: A delicious clash of SOUL, JAZZ and LATIN, with a special love to modern BOSSA NOVA.

A “new defining of superb dancefloor-jazz” which makes this music welcome to DJ’s worldwide.
The long awaited first album “Rhythm Is What Makes Jazz Jazz” is just released and
"We’re really proud to introduce fantastic vocal-features with the exciting Pat Appleton/DePhazz and the charming Isabelle Antena/Nouvelle Vague, with new “freestyle”-signing "Malena" from Spain and the exceeding voice from Vienna, Mrs. Bella Wagner.”
Overwhelming response and massive statements around the globe - from radio stations as well as established clubs approves the early praises of the scene and gave kudos to the producers. Thanks!

This album was featured on the BBC/UK show “The Best Albums 2008” by Craig Charles.
