AllMusic Review by

Ecco Chamber's specialty for low-mood jazz-funk is further elaborated on in the third chapter of Black Coffee. Mixed once again by Viennese producers Klangwirkstoff Scheibosan and Emu, Chapter 3 spotlights soul, house, and techno-lounge tracks by Nickodemus, Shanti Roots, Van Delta, Organic Grooves, and the nu-jazz-ready Baby Mammoth. "Boss on the Boat," by Richard Dorfmeister's Tosca side project, is a soft trip down peacefully laid-out grooves with just the slightest hint of insect menace, while "La Politique, Pt. 1" by the Menheads flirts with glimmery breakbeats and super-spy sax. A professionally mixed and relaxing addition to the series.
