The 10th-year anniversary is celebrated with this compilation. Since the opening of Purobeach, 10 years ago, establishments from Europe to Dubai followed. This collector was compiled by Ben Sowton and Sebba Ramis, both residents. A wonderful story going from Nu-disco, house to deep house wherein a tropical touch is always just around the corner. Names such as John Tejada, Satin Jackets, Phonique, Vincenzo, Jon Kennedy, James Bright are delivering all tracks for this wonderful compilation.
As he was developing his formidable career in the early era of smooth jazz, the saxman proved an invaluable sideman of Chick Corea's Elektric Band, David Benoit's touring ensemble and a studio player for projects by such artists as Keiko Matsui and Mike Garson. Yet as a solo artist, he spent his first three albums searching for an identity that ranged from pop (Round Trip) to electronic mainstream jazz (Crossroads). With Oasis, his search came to a diverse, exciting, and highly enjoyable end. Marienthal applies his stellar blowing techniquest to styles ranging from folk to gospel, but the overall attitude he conveys is sweet and soulful R&B, as in the hoppin' grooves of the funky opening tracks "Hustlin'" and "Seafood to Go."
