Various Verve Remixed 2
- Words: Margaret Murray
- Label: Verve
Verve's brilliant remixes are Hitchcockian in nature-repeated exposure reveals secrets previously hidden in the shadows (or vaults, as it were).VR 2 is somewhat tamer than the inaugural project, and a simultaneous release of an unmixed version CD smacks of a money-wasting decision, unfortunately. However, virtually the entire first half is a keeper, with the Gotan Project's gypsy-tinged take on Sarah Vaughan being the biggest catch, while the Fila Brazillia/Cal Tjader number gets tastier with each listen. Felix Da Housecat contributes a near-stellar remix of Nina Simone's Sinnerman-much praise goes to any artist who can give us a dose of the late Ms. Simone in a new light.
