Paprika Soul, Paprika Soul (60:53) Higher Octave Jazz 50957 2001 www.higheroctave.com Paprika Soul is a London-based outfit that more or less merits the "jam band" label. Their blend of Latin jazz, funk, R&B and electronic dance music is energetic, well played, and on this self-titled debut disc, exceptionally well recorded. The sound is big and layered, and each track boasts its own mix of colors. The guitars of Malcolm McFarlane and the keyboards and programming of Andy Spiller are often outstanding, and guest vocal spots by Sarah Newell and Christine Glen add a lot. Nothing beats the smoking-hot "Ocean Dance" in terms of quirky inspiration. Listen also for the house-music reworking of "So What" on "Burn It Up," and the subtle inclusion of bass clarinet on "Each and Every Day." ~David R. Adler
