New CD suits the right nights

Jazz Cafe Project
Bangkok Nightlife

Bangkok Nightlife features many great local musicians. While it’s basically a jazz album, the songs are done in a style that makes it easy to get into, even if you’re not familiar with the genre.

The album contains a distinctly contemporary type of jazz that mixes in modern styles like rock and R&B. More typically, there are also some easy listening bossa nova tracks like “Yak Yood Vea La (Want to Stop Time).

“Pro Wa Rak (Because of Love)” is a cool-sounding song that features an interesting fusion of funk and jazz. Another album highlight is “Mai Yak Rak (Don’t Want to Love),” which has a soft-rock sound with a soulful vibe.

If you’re not the type of person who normally listens to jazz, this album might just be the one to introduce you to a new style. — VH
