AllMusic Review by

Le Groove Eclectique is an imaginative dance mix compiled by Mark Gorbulew, the musical director at New York's trendy Au Bar (on East 58th Street). The disc represents what has been called the "Au Bar Sound" -- a smooth, multicultural vibe that melds disco, house, and acid jazz with sounds drawn from around the world. (The subtitle reads, "A chilled-out voyage thru global dance music.") Highlights include the ambient, dreamy "Matrass Mambo," David Fiuczynski's cumbus and fretless guitar work on "Haman," and the curious musicological musings heard during "Heart of Africa/Afro Deep." Upscale, urbane party music.
