2004 release from this soul legend whose songs continue to be heard in their original versions and re-invented contemporary versions- from Marvin Gaye,Qunicy Jones and Minnie Riperton to Maxwell, G-Unit and Brandy, to name a few. Blending his jazz and soul roots with the rhythms of Brazil, this collection of songs feature his sensual and soulful vocals along with the talents of Brazilian guitarist Sandro Albert- naming it "R & BOSSA". Lyrically, Ware is a spiritually inspired messenger of love, an optimistic poet who dispenses doses of wisdom along with poignant prayers of oneness. He and Albert dressed the tracks luxuriously with intimate acoustic guitar riffs, classy piano flourishes, cinematic string sounds and Bossa Nova percussion.
Spectrum Pursuit Vehicle is 74 minutes of subtle electronic music from synth pop legends of yore Vincent Clarke and Martyn Ware. The music, spatialized using 3-D visualization software and audio processors, originally appeared as part an art installation in London, where a white cloth room saw the colors designated in each song title cross-faded to create infinite hues. Clarke and Ware crafted the music to "promote profound relaxation," and they specify in the liner notes that it's best heard via headphones at dawn or dusk.
