The Cinematic Orchestra, Every Day album, Ninjatune
Your first clue is that Gilles Peterson wrote the CD blurb.
And I'm not going into a big aside here about who Gilles is, if you haven't heard of him. Suffice it to say that he was one of the fave DJs on the acid-jazz mailing list a little while back. He might still be. I unsubscribed as the a-hole quotient was way too high. Now don't go doing a transference thing here. As far as I know, Gilles Peterson is a pleasant man.
So, OK, here is a nexus of jazz and modern electronic music - some grooves, some instruments being played very well, voices. There are some straight songs and some more free flowing things, all with a nice depth and a certain seriousness to them. It's not really dance music but dancing cheek to cheek late at night to some of this would be quite nice. Just listening at any time is also good. (thunderfinger)
