Offering an amalgamation of modern sound and featuring the enigmatic voices of Shirley Horn, Anna Karina, Nina Simone and David Linx, here Alif [Tree] takes from his past works on independent cinema soundtracks, modern and classical ballet scores, late night parisian radio shows and big city club gigs. The vibe is definitely late night chic with jazz, funk, blues and arabic playing a prime role. ~ In The Mix
Certainly, from the very beginning of French Cuisine, when "Deadly Species" introduces the juxtaposition of deep and crisp analog jazz samples and a more abbreviated drum machine sound, the listener is very conscious of the fact that Alif Tree has placed every element with exacting specification... French Cuisine would have sounded good ten years ago, and will sound good ten years in the future. ~ Tim O'Neil, PopMatters
