「Autumn Leaves」「In A Sentimental Mood」「Song For My Father」といったジャズ・スタンダードに目配せしたタイトルに「Oedo Bushi」なんて曲もあったりして特に意味はないと思いますが、和のエキゾチックを微妙に取り込んだ曲もあります。シンセサイザーに、電子KEYS,
|B1.||Song For My Father||sample|
|B2.||In A Sentimental Mood||sample|
Side B starts strong and steady with 'Song For My Father', an upbeat number fusing funk and disco to create the perfect dance floor filler that builds to a climax with one of Tenderlonious's wild flute solos (one of my personal favourites!). 'In A Sentimental Mood' follows and, as the title suggests, shows the listener how this producer came by his name. Tender flute inflections and sensitive lead synths, backed by quiet whispers make this the perfect accompaniment to an intimate candle lit dinner. The EP finishes with 'Dale's Corner,' another broken feel on this one with delayed Rhodes supported by tasteful flute lines throughout - it leaves the listener feeling uplifted and wanting more!
To conclude, this is quite possibly Tenderlonious's finest work to date. There are not many producers that I can think of that have managed to fuse as many influences and musical approaches into one record as he has. He is clearly emerging to be one of the most talented multi-instrumentalists in modern music today.
