Perhaps known best for their lounge-tastic cover of Nirvana's "Come As You Are", the Bebo Best Orchestra are masters of the soft shuffling art of gentle bossa and '60s exotica. There are covers on this full-length LP too - Led Zep's "Whole Lotta Love" gets a pleasingly Brazilian makeover for example - but it's originals like "Teu Corpo", "Samba Wonder" and "La Fleur De La Musique" that really stick out. The Lord Sitar-recalling "Beat Conductor" sees big-beat drums come out to shine while classic '70s funk is represented handsomely on "Bass 70".
A nu-jazz take on an evergreen jazz classic by Bebo Best, who reinterprets Benny Goodman's "Sing Sing Sing" with samples and beats on this new release from Chinchin. Perfect for fans of electro-swing, this bouncy and bassy reworking sees Best in fine form vocally, while the distinctive horns of the original are melted perfectly into the mix. The accompanying Koko Chanel mix ups the tempo to create a brilliant battle weapon for DJs working on a house vibe.
