The Rebirth of Cool series was one of Patrick Forge's projects that would last through-out the 90's. He was involved in quite a bit at the time of this one and the time represented a pivotal juncture in musical paths and careers. Several genres were on the verge of taking off; from underground to electronic to nu-bossa and break-beats, Patrick was in the middle of it all - and then some. Also spinning with Gilles Peterson and the radio shows, to various other projects that existed and would soon exist like Batu and Da Lata, these were truly exciting times. And meshing with a general musical sentiment, you had this series in a time when acid-jazz and music from all over the world was kind of coming together.

The rebirth of cool collection is a series of albums that include music that is not easily defined in one musical category. The music on rebirth of cool is what I'd like to call hybrid soul/jazz music, vol. 1 in this collection of tracks is a wonderful good to ,music that can't easily be boxed into one particular category, hence the term hybrid soul/jazz. If you are interested in music that isn't easily categorized pick up the rebirth of cool collection.

The Rebirth of Cool series will round out any acid jazz collection nicely. If you like gettin' into a groove, than this is for you. Enjoy!

This album is perfect to play at the beginning of a party to kind of ease into things, or is perfect as a kind of post-bash chill-out. An excellent grab.
