Have You Felt This Way Before Lp


Released: 7th June 2004 | 9 track album
***** CD Included Carl Craig's remix of 'Busted Trees' ***** The Canadian quartet's debut album 'Have You Felt This Way Before? seamlessly combines elements of Jazz, Funk, House music and Dance rhythms into an extremely palatable and tasteful whole. Fronted by vocalist / lyricist Chantal Thompson, who brings a glacial quality to leading the line, unsurprising when she numbers the likes of Joni Mitchell and Tracey Thorn as vocal influences. Jason Kenemy on keys adds some jazz improvisation to the band's sound, coupled with the warm and mood-enhancing tonalities from Wayne Ogilvie, one of Toronto's most distinguished session guitarists, and Trumpet / flugelhorn player Benji Perosin effortlessly combine to produce a refreshing contemporary sound. Blues and Soul magazine further describes their 'sublime jazz' sound as 'vivacious and soulful', a testament to Directions? mature yet wide appeal; it's this authentic character that's brought radio play through the likes of Jazz FM and BBC Radio. Features remixes from Detroit legend and founder of influential imprint Planet E Carl Craig (responsible for one of the top remixes of 2003: Cesaria Evoria's 'Angola': BMG France), and OM Records? West Magnetic (Pier Shu-Lutman).'
"Directions distil diverse influences into cool jazz-soaked deep house...punchy but flawlessly clean live production acts as a foil for Ms Thompsons crystal voice?"
