Carte Blanche, Vol. 3 Review

by John Bush

The third volume in Naked Music's excellent Carte Blanche series of expressive jazz-house mixes maintains the quality control of previous volumes; though not always a distinctive sound, Naked Music's vision of keys-heavy disco, R&B, and house is a great sound spread over the course of an hour. One major highlight comes from the sweet-soul performance of Jonatan B├Ąckelie on "Fall Into You" by Stateless. Meanwhile, the clipped beats, glittering effects, and echoey vocals driving P'taah's "Hold You Close" would've lit up the dancefloors at the Paradise Garage.
