>>59626805 >Amon Tobin >Bricolage >[Ninja Tune] >Rating: 10.0 >It was the 2nd of July, 1997, right around 8:00pm. I was traveling to Chicago with Pitchfork staff writer Swank Porterhouse. We were rolling down I-94 at ridiculous speeds; the sun was racing next to us, determined to get there first. >Having nothing but 60 CDs in the backseat we were sick of listening to, I popped this future classic in the player for the first time. Initially, we were caught off guard by a warped string section singing sweet melodies a la Tommy Dorsey. That's when the unmistakably jazz riddim set in with a knife to our throats. The string bass pounded at a volume of ten, the saxophone smoothly keeping the cool and the beat of Chicago dead ahead. >As the city loomed over our heads, Amon rolled out the perfect soundtrack. Insane sampled rhythms and loops, fireball brass sections and overpowering orchestras led the way and I suddenly found myself more immersed in the music than the incredible metropolis before me. >On Bricolage, Tobin pours some amazingly real-sounding instruments out of his keyboard and sampler, making old jazz music with modern technology. Up there with classic albums by Quincy Jones and Miles Davis, Tobin is a true example of what can be done with a little equipment and a wealth of talent. >-Ryan Schreiber
