Multi-instrumentalist, composer, arranger and producer Mike Harwood, internationally known as Cruiserman, gives smooth funk and chillout grooves atoms of acid/electronica jazz and showers of soul which sow warmth and bliss into the modal harmonies on his songs from his latest release Booboo. Produced by Cruiserman with some tracks co-produced by his good friend Markus Wagner, the album has reflections of urban funk on tracks like Someone Like You, So complicated and Could You Be The One featuring the quiet storm vocal styling of Dyan Burrell, and the smoky country-blues textures stirred up by singer-songwriter John Keenan on numbers like Moonshine and Let Me Go.
Booboo is an amalgam of jazz, funk, soul and blues-folk which manifest into waves of cool funk and trance jazz. The songs are sensuous with fluid movements and stimulating lifts that bring you in and free you of the burdens that weigh you down. The album commences with tangy guitar sequences and island beats on Feel Real Bad, wrapped by the raspy blues-folk timbres of Mike Harwood. The smooth jazz synth scapes of Cruisin Part One are pulsed by club beats giving the number a West Coast ambiance. The bluesy chillout tempo of Love Is has a cool island sway integrating urban funk raptures which excite the delicate keys of the momentum. The electrifying coils of fusion and acid/electronica jazz phrases on Booboo are captivating with balmy tones and stimulating patinas. Review by Susan Francis :
