Boomkat Product Review:
Peacefrog continue their string of excellent releases in 2003 with their debut full length from Detroit's jazz house master Alton Miller. Alton's been around for many years perfecting his craft of delicious jazz house in the mode of Blaze, Joe Claussell and Osunlade to name a few. This album sticks mostly to the smoothed out 4/4 shuffle with live percussive elements and deep keyboard riffs highlighted by the single 'Shine On Me' which was released on Moodymann's KDJ imprint. Where this album strays furthest away from Detroit is in the vocal department where uncredited artists give the material a garage/gospel slant. 'Centre Of Sun' will find favour with the Ibadan/Spiritual Life crew with it's live ritualistic percussion trips and uplifting vibe and 'No Goodbyes' might make you dream about Carl Craig's ambient fuelled downtempo trips due to its laxadasical vibe. Eleven tracks in total to choose from. Recommended.
