Hi-Res Booklet
A sparkling groove machine: Nils Landgren’s Funk Unit upholds the flame of the most virtuoso jazz funk. For their tenth album, the internationally acclaimed gang welcomes a prestigious guest: guitarist Ray Parker Jr., the funk expert from Detroit with a resume the length of the Great Wall of China, on which Stevie Wonder, Rufus and Chaka Khan, Aretha Franklin, Bill Withers, Michael Henderson, Jean-Luc Ponty, Boz Scaggs, Herbie Hancock, Tina Turner, Diana Ross and even Ghostbuster’s soundtrack coexist! Another big name took part in the making of Unbreakable: trumpeter Randy Brecker, strengthening an already virtuoso gang (Magnum Coltrane Price on bass, Andy Pfeiler on the guitar, Jonas Wall on the saxophone, Petter Bergander on keyboard and Robert Ikiz on drums) led with a strong hand by the Swedish trumpeter. Unbreakable glides with ease between jazz fusion, pure funk, soul and rock, with a particular attention to vocals, without omitting to honour past legends (beautiful covers of Allen Toussaint’s Just a Kiss Away and Marvin Gaye’s Rockin'After Midnight). An album that thumping bass and effusive brass sections enthusiasts will certainly appreciate. © CM/Qobuz

Hi-Res Booklet
At the start of the 1980s, Pieces of a Dream was one of the best popular expressions of the funkier end of jazz fusion. Founded in 1976 by the bassist Cedric Napoleon, the drummer Curtis Harmon and the pianist James Lloyd, the group was given its name by Grover Washington Jr. and it surfed from smooth jazz and groovy rhythm'n'blues. With Just Funkin’ Around, time seemed to stand still, and the group, still led by Lloyd and Harmon, gives a virtuoso demonstration of its work that mixes jazz, soul and funk. Even if, for some, this kind of lighter sound might bring to mind muzak from airport bars or three-star hotels, any listener would have to concede that Pieces of a Dream moves heads and bodies with a dash of real talent. A treat for aficionados of smooth jazz. © CM/Qobuz
