Although an album called Ain’t That A Beach Party Vol. 2 is going to put all sorts of preconceptions in the mind of the potential listener, even before the first notes have been released into the summer air, A Fresh Delight, which can be found in this compilation, manages to rise way beyond any notions of throw away seasonal hits. Instead it revels in a sort of elegant jazz delivery put to a joyous house beat but even rises beyond that with a smoky and languid vocal sitting contrastingly over the vibrant beat below.
It means that there is something for everyone here depending on how you approach the song. Those looking for a party will find a groovesome track with a great vocal, perfect as part of the soundtrack to your summer fun but approach from a different angle and you will find a fantastically soulful jazz-pop vocal being driven towards more commercial waters one beat at a time.
