RENE COSTY - DANGER, SUSPENSE ET EPROUVETTES





Track 1 - Expectancy
Track 2 - Danger
Track 3 - Alchimie
Track 4 - Ostinato Bass
Track 5 - Like A Magic Dream
Track 6 - Cosmogony
Track 7 - Onirisme
Track 8 - Schizophreny

This Rene Costy album has a very rewarding mix of crime funk, crime jazz and atmospheres that will please those of you who enjoy the band Air. It may only be 8 tracks long but there's plenty of scope for the claustrophobic ( "Alchimie" ), the wistful ( "Like A Magic Dream" ) and the esoteric ( "Schizophreny" ). However, if you are purely looking for a funky trip then head straight to the fab "Danger" and "Ostinato Bass". It really is a great collection and probably ranks up there in the top dozen or so library records in my collection.

A great album and I agree, definitely one of the better ones. My pick is certainly 'Danger'; great moody piece of cop funk.
