Quintessence - Talk Less Listen More

Remember a small independent label based in London called Dorado? Well, if you were into the jazzier side of soul and some more eclectic genres, then you might remember this group from those days. Now back via their native Finland this mixture of Nu soul, jazz, funk and Scandinavian cool is at the cutting edge of organic beats with feeling. Featuring the soulful vocals of Emma Salokoski who rises above the crowd on the stand-out track ' Ballad in 6/8' the musicianship throughout is seriously tight. 

For a long time Europe has dominated the scene when it comes to a fresh slant on soulful music played with a live sound. The London scene of the 90's has largely been replaced by the Scandinavian scene of the millenium. Whether your tastes run to Jill Scott, Prince or indeed Antonio Carlos Jobim this album will satisfy all palates. Class and cool together. It's the real deal.
