Hello there, all of you cool cats and welcome to my special Valentine’s Day album review of the memorable 2009 NuGroove Music entry featuring a special mix of electronic lounge music all done with a Brazilian flair.

Not much biographical information is available about this group online.  However, when I first heard a sampling of the horns on the opening track of “Motif d’Azur” a few years back, I instantly fell in love with the rhythms and the beats.  Feels very playful and in my mind could light up a spark just in time for cooking that favorite meal in front of your lover/significant other.

The other key tracks to have on repeat while possibly thinking about cuddling next to your lover include Tracks 2 “Dreamaway” and Track 5 with “Sonho Do Brasil” with the rather seductive vocals done so well by Sabine Galuschka (the last track has the accompaniment of Gero Klevenow on trombone).

Want another track to get those hearts pumping?  I invite you to check out Track 6, a little over six minutes of pure bliss with “Samba_00”, vocals done masterfully by Anke-Christin Wagner and Volker Kriegsmann playing the oboe.

The other tracks take on a methodical, slow, and very laid-back groove.  Again, this is not just a really nice album because it is Valentine’s Day, but for any day for any guy that is eager enough who wishes to get romantic with that dream woman or vice versa.

However you spend your Valentine’s night, please make it fun and cute.

See you all back next week with a nice album review highlighting the work done by Cecilia Dale.  Please take care, everybody.
