Reviews:

Six albums to the good, Green has been on a winning streak since 2010 s breakthrough Black Sands. His music has aided the sales of Citroen cars and Olay creams, as well as soothing the puzzlement of Lost. Wrapped in delicately programmed drums, Green s music is at once both somber and reassuring. If what comes out the other end is the music of Bonobo, then this is the fuel that keeps the engine running: soul, jazz, classical, pop, funk, leftfield, rock. Pianos and brass are abundantly present. Our ivories are warmed and tickled by the classic, Bill Evans, and new school, with Matthew Bourne s mournfully beautiful "Juliet" and Dustin O Halloran s "An Ending A Beginning. " The brass section comes courtesy of Menehan Street Band s jazzy "The Traitor, " "Flipside" by the Hypnotic Brass Band. Exclusives include YouTube sensation "One Thing" by Peter & Kerry. Not only that, but there s Bonobo s special LNT cover version, a brilliant reading of Donovan s "Get Thy Bearings, " As the light dims, the unsettling sounds of Lapalux or maybe even Shlomo pierce the misty evening air, before giving way to the ethereal splendour of Eddi Front s "Gigantic" or even Nina s paean to an imagined rural idyll "Baltimore. " Amble down to the riverside. It could be the Great Ouse, as willows weep into the water; it could even be in Brooklyn overlooking the Lower East Side, as the sun slides down the sides of the skyscrapers. Take a notepad for inspiration. Maybe even a hipflask for a slug of something warm. Sit down and reflect and let those beautiful pianos skim the water s surface. Sometimes, you think, life is good. You can t play a symphony alone, it takes an orchestra to play it: Simon Green is your conductor.

This is the first Late Night Tales CD to include unmixed tracks as bonus download code. This release also features a Bonobo recording exclusive to the release, a stunning cover of Donovan s "Get Thy Bearings, " as well as an depth personal track comments by Simon Green aka Bonobo and an exclusive spoken word piece by A list actor Benedict Cumberbatch (Star Trek/The Hobbit/Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy)
