Fertile Ground Remixed

Earning plaudits from London's soul jazz cognoscenti, this Baltimore group's infectious use of Afro-Caribbean rhythms has made them a favorite of those on a syncopated slant, evidenced here by their remixers. Kaidi Tatham turns in an ambitious, tempo-dividing version of "Spiritual War," maintaining careful d?tente with Navasha Daya's vocals. Her powerful voice does get the best of Ayro on "The Moment," however, especially in comparison to Seiji's shuffling funk version. Jazztronik's "Peace & Love" channels Zero dB with batacuda-laden flavor, and Waiwan's "Take Me Higher" is a brilliant bit of future jazz. Worthy companions to the originals.
