Bleckmann is a male vocalist with a high, clear voice, a New Yorker who hangs with the likes of Mark Dresser, Chris Speed and Jim Black. Here, he goes for a floaty, surreal atmosphere anchored by accessible and pretty melodies, even on the weird tracks like #9. |
It's not your typical jazz singing, but it's not that far out, either. Crystalline vibraphone and washes of electric guitar/bass add to the whole feeling.
As a side note, look at the number of languages he sings in!
*2- Slow, misty. In French.
*3- Gentle, pretty.
*4- Delicate and slow, in Japanese.
5- Sparse midtempo
7- Soft jazz with electronic manipulations, as if the CD were catching. Really annoying.
9- Slow with industrial noises
*10- Midtempo Brecht song, in German
