Long before the likes of daft punk and air, ludovic navarre, better known as st germain was breaking new ground as one of the original french dance artists. ‘tourist’, first released in april 2000, is the now legendary blue note debut album that went on to sell over 2.8 million copies worldwide. for the first time ‘tourist’ is now available fully remastered. the critically acclaimed electronic / jazz fusion album picked up a host of awards around the globe including number 1 billboard contemporary jazz album 2001, it was recommended as ‘one of the best albums of the year 2000’ in rolling stone magazine, as well as picking up nominations of ‘best french act’ at the mtv europe music award 2001, and ‘best jazz act’ at the mobo awards 2001. a perfectly formed deep-house voyage, taking the listener through blends of jazz, blues, latin and hip-hop, ‘tourist’ is a must have for any dance or jazz music collection. the album transcends the ages and sounds as relevant and fresh today as it did on release, rightly staking a claim as a true modern classic.
