This gave me a good laugh.  It is exactly the type of thing radio personality Joe Frank <https://www.joefrank.com/> would slowly speak in his gruff voice, over background music that sounds exactly like this song.  I'm not saying you stole his story or anything; it's just that you should both seek the same therapy. ;-)

Just like this story might be influenced by Joe Frank, this song sounds influenced by Weapon of Choice by Fatboy Slim.
Very hip! Cat's on a roll! Groovin' like St. Germain's acid jazz...
Spiffy!
damn this is good.
Is this improv in places or all composed? It seems to have some improv in it.

There's a voice in there somewhere. So, technically, not an instrumental.
I would like to here "Der Bauch".
Great change of pace after all this rock rock.
Whoa, just stepped back to the mid-2000s, browsing around in the flagship Banana Republic store in Manhattan.  Anyone relate?
Was wondering what these guys have been up to since this album...apparently they released a new single in 2018 from an upcoming new album.  Will have to check that out; hopefully the new album is still happening.
Dancing and coding at the same time!

YES EXACTLY! RIP JOE FRANK!
Sweet mother of pearl I love this album cover!! 
This whole album is fantastic. Love these guys. Great dinner music. Or house cleaning music. Or just hanging around the house music.
Yeah...definitely diggin' it.
funky and delightful..
Similar but different... check out GoGo Penguin. 
Cool tune.  Warmed me up for meditation class at lunch today.{#Meditate}
This is, I think, in the great Wim Wenders' film Pina.

Catchy.  I like it !   Sounds great on the big transducers.
 
Not to my taste. Sounds a little like an old Casio on a synchro loop

And of course they were playing Jazz, non-stop.  But I was like thinkin’ to myself, this is like the SAME song being played over and over again!!  But it was a radio station, cuz there was an announcer between songs, spouting off all these illustrious Jazz legends’ names.  So finally I went up to the “barista” and started getting all Bill Bixby on her about the whole thing, yelling about this GOD DAMN JAZZ SONG THEY KEEP PLAYING OVER AND OVER!!!  Next thing I know she calls these two 300 lbs musclehead bouncers from the bar next door, and they’re like her buddies and all, and they freaking throw me through the glass door out onto the street ON MY ASS!  And I’m STILL furious over the jazz during all this, so the cops come and freaking TASER ME TO WITHIN AN IN OF MY LIFE, and to top it all off I spend the night in JAIL!  And I still swear it was the same god damn jazz song being played over and over again!!! UGH!!!

Some people miss the deliberate irony or levity of contemporary "Lounge" and "chill" genres.  It's not worth trying to explain it after a few times.  If it's not Floyd, Zeppelin, or The Dead a lot of people here have no tolerance for it.
This recording stands up well.
Worthy of a little shimmy and shoulder shakn' {#Dance}

Sheeze, I like it.
PSD just failed 'cause of all the listeners trying to avoid this group.....

Nice to have a little chill...a sorbet between more rocking songs.  I'd chew my arm off if this were the only type of music played here, but for an odd interval here & there, it's quite nice.
 
If there were only one type of music (any type) on this station I wouldn't listen very often — not so sure about needing to chew my arm off though.

The operative word in this song is "stiff." I mean, seriously, do you really want Radio Paradise to turn into Elevator Jazz Central? This tune is horrifically nondescript and boring. There are a million "contemporary jazz" songs that sound very similar. Please don't muck up the airwaves with this...
 


This is totally chair-bopping me today.  *{#Dancingbanana}

Not bad!
The dudes on the cover is the artists' dads.

Too bad dZihan & Kamien are no more. They had a great sound together.
It sounds like the theme song for a 1950's television show.

Ah, jiggy-jig :o)

The pic of these two reminds me of the (in)famous Brit contemporary artists Gilbert & George.

I swear I've heard this tune in Cosi at least a few times.  They play a lot of chillout jazzy stuff.  Anybody else?
great tune!
I think Gotye sampled this tune on one of his songs on Like Drawing Blood.

the muted trumpet sometimes sounds a little like a cartoon duck
Sitting here nodding on the subway in the middle of stockholm.

God bless the iPhone.
God bless RadioParadise!
Man, do I love a drummer who can mix times and alternate between the upbeat and the downbeat. I'm sitting here nodding at work.
yeah, way cool tune.
That was a sweet transition Bill!
Sitting in my chair listening to this tune on this warm sunny day...I started wishing I was driving in a convertible with the top down and this song blaring.

 
Absolutely! I was working and listening and the work stopped. I thought, this is an interesting new ending to Mysterious Ways. Looked at the Now Playing window and said "What the...? How did he..?"

Very much in the vein of Hotel Costes complilation CDs.Worth checking out if you like this kinda stuff.
9 on first listen.  More please.
these cool cats are outstanding- not sure why Bill doesn't program more of their work as it seems perfect;y suited to RP

Just in case nobody knows, live musicians played and recorded music specifically for this album, and the two DJs (actually the sons of the two funny fellas on the cover) mixed everything together. That's a fine form of electronica if you ask me :-) Glad this has still been well received!
 
Bump
Thanks for mixing a little downtempo in with RP. You know there's a lot more where that came from. :)
{#Smile}

Viagra Jazz?


Tasty cut and an exceptionally cool cover.
Nice~  I wish Bill would play this more often!  First I've heard it!
who would like a martini ?

Coincidence or not, i disclose  and select just yesterday this album "Gran Riserva", to select some musics for a friend mine;  i must very confess that i am a little skeptical concerning these boardings of mix-musics;   are horrible work for there, authentic musical-crimes;  i bought this album have 3 years, without great certainty, but i must say that after to hear intently, we are, in this in case, an excellent work;  i liked and i am satisfied for now hearing in RP Station

Wonderful prototypical nujazz!  Love it!
They put out cool stuff.

And if you like this, check out the groups, Down To the Bone and Four 80 East.

Two DJ's at the club spinning vinyl for the masses who are populating the lite dance floor, John Ra'volta style. Guy on the left....."Good lord, would these people learn how to stay with rythum! This is NOT the bossa nova." Guy on the right....."Oh Pleeeaaazzz would the line into the men's room get shorter before I float away!" :lol:
I love the "chill groove" of this!
Good song. Good vibe.
I totally dig this.
D & Z are just fabbo. If you like this, also check out Freaks and Icons and their Live 2-disc set. You will be compelled to move.
