Ambient Jazz Ensemble’s sound is inspired by a mix of Brian Eno, Gil Evans and Weather Report. From the offset “Eyes Wide Open” takes us on an glorious orchestral, slightly jazzy direction. Think Pat Metheny Group meets David Axelrod with a modern electronic twist. The horns, brass, strings and synths play off each other to create beautiful soundscapes. “The Journey”, showing the funkier side of Suite Shop, flirts with chorale music at its peak. The aptly titled “Quiet Hero” does exactly what it says on the tin: gorgeous tranquility which then builds in booth mood and intensity climaxing in electronic orchestral heaven, definitely one for festivals, sunsets and rises, epic moments personified. And then we confidently exit the Suite Shop “Never In Doubt” and roll the credits. Writer, Colin Baldry, is not short of Genius! Neil Cowley (Brand New Heavies, Jamiroquai, Neil Cowley Trio) plays keys on all 10 tracks alongside strings and a brass section featuring Finn Peters who’s played with Bill Frisell, Sam Rivers and DJ Spinna.


I became acquainted w/ A.J.E. thru a remix of "Jazz Face" I found here on Amazon. That led me to this album and I'm not disappointed by it at all. If you prefer your ambient to be some character holding the same chord on a synthesizer for 10-12 minutes, a la Steven Roach, et al, this is probably not for you. Jazz is the operative word here and AJE lays down some atmospheric grooves that almost veer into fusion territory at times, but never get too wild. The subtle ethos of ambient is never lost and this album can serve as either background music or stand up to direct purposeful listening as well. A satisfying purchase.
