Ichisan's Aperitiv, released last year, was so good that Amsterdam based Bordello A Parigi decided to return for a second helping from his sumptuous debut album. Four choice cuts have been selected and reworked with a specific instrument focus. The harpsicord version of 'Hotel Jama' keeps the intoxicating melody of the original but allows beats to relax as notes shine with an incandescent brilliance. Drums put their feet up for the Rhodes version of 'Modri Tunel'. Deep strings and lounging lines mingle in this work of smoke swirling seduction. 'Kozmetika (Trumpet Version)' dances to a different tune. Rich bass is again central but this time brash and bold brass intertwine with funk filled bars. The last waltz arrives with the piano version of 'Terminal E'. Alluring notes ascend, rising and falling against heartwrenching guitar strings for a finale to end this ballroom inspired beauty.
