    Jazz Cartier - "100 Roses"

    Toronto's Jazz Cartier impressed with his debut project Marauding In Paradise, and his live shows are already legendary, but how would he keep up his momentum? How would he handle the tricky proposition of capitalizing on his early hype with a second project? Long story short, with ease.

    With his new project Hotel Paranoia, Cartier delivers an ambitious and varied body of work. If you're not feeling the raw energy and heavy beat of "100 Roses" just skip to the next song and you'll get a bouncy, melody filled jam with twinkling production. Jazz is still at the beginning of his career, but the levels are very, very high.—Constant Gardner
