mellow motif | mellow motif (2009) ★★★★☆
the debut album of the band mellow motif, an acoustic jazz/latin collaboration of natasha patamapongs (vocal) & eugene ang (piano). mellow motif successfully delivers such gentle, energetic, sublime quality of jazz, bossa nova, and latin moods throughout the album. even if you are not a jazz lover, you will easily enjoy listening to their unique style of vocal arrangement and performing.

the album contains ten selective tracks as follows; 1. little jazz bird (george gershwin) 2. tea for two (vincent millie youmans) 3. they say it’s spring (marty clark & bob haymes) 4. lemon tree (fool’s garden) 5. o pato (jaymes silva & neuza teixeira) 6. lady is a tramp (richard rodgers & lorenz hart) 7. one note samba (antonio carlos jobim) 8. if i were a bell (frank loesser) 9. little boat (roberto menescal & ronaldo bôscoli) 10. santa claus is coming to town (haven gillespie & john frederick coots) …all tracks were arranged by natasha patamapongs & eugene ang except “o pato” which was arranged by mind games.

i have one tiny personal comment; i do not think that the song “santa claus is coming to town” should make it into the album since it’s christmas song and now it ain’t christmas or nowhere near the next one. if it has to be in the album it should be a bonus or hidden track. i would prefer something like “my funny valentine” or probably “so nice” as the last track.

mellow motif album is now available everywhere under warner music thailand.
p.s. tonight mellow motif will be performing at vanilla garden from 10pm, you can also grab their cd there.
