The new electro-jazz CD from Eliott James

Cinematic Life

“Techno Jazz at its very best. The Album is hauntingly innovative and is strong rhythmically.” John Reid, Keith Community Radio (Keith, Banffshire, Scotland)

“What makes Cinematic Life special is that beneath it's pulsating rhythms and sound effects, there is melody. And surprisingly, some soul. I found Eliott James' CD to be a refreshing change and quite beautiful.” Sal Nunziato, music writer (New York)

“Eliott James crafts a hypnotic synergy of beats and grooves. I played nearly all this CD on my radio show tonight. I generally don't allow an artist more than 10 minutes at a time but James' music was so dynamic, so enrapturing that it demanded the listener's ear on every track. From mellow to upbeat, long strings to jazz-like sax solos, synthesized beats to sampled natural soundscapes, “Cinematic Life” holds onto you the whole disc through. “ Danny Ledonne, KRZA-FM (Alamosa/Taos)

“Think of the music of Tangerine Dream and Kraftwerk interspersed with the latest technology and beautiful acoustic guitars and pulsating rhythms, some contemporary jazz injected in just the right places, and you are right in the middle of a Cinematic Life. The title could not be more appropriate. This music has the ability to take you anywhere you would like to go, its like having your own do it yourself world at your fingertips, just put the CD on and let it all happen.” JazzReview.com

“This is a great 'themed ' album which I am playing on both the radio and out at live gigs preferring the tracks with the groove to the down-tempo
