I've spent a lot of time in Tanzania and decided to this map as further and, hopefully, more up to date detail. If you are going to spend any time off of the main roads, this map is essentially useless. Other than towns and villages on main roads, and some general areas for camps and lodges, this map misses the mark. As far as I can tell, a amazing a lot of towns and villages of some size and importance, but slightly off the "beaten path," are completely omitted, making it just another pretty, but very general map for non-detailed reference. I have had, and seen, much better. Very disappointed.
Come to Tanzania!! Obtain lost....Well not with this map. Not only is it clear, but it also shows the major streets and even some of the dirt streets in the area. I'm a fan. We all need maps and this one really works. It is street map, so expect that is its job.I LOVE maps because when you are out of range with your cell phone (lots of the time in Tz) the map is right there in your vehicle ready for you. And it is not expensive and it doesn't use up your data and it doesn't depend what region you are in.
This map is beautiful, folds easily, and decently waterproof. Unfortunately, it is now quite out of date, and doesn't contain several regions (and roads) which have been instated since it's printing in 2012. I'll be looking for a fresh version.
Could not search GPS maps for the countries. This was surprisingly helpful for finding our method around. Did not have a lot of of the unpaved streets in the national parks, but only licensed tutorials were allowed to drive there anyway. Found it really useful, especially when driving in Rwanda.
This fine album is often looked to as the harbinger of musical styles "for the fresh millenium," and as marking a shift in the creative epicenter of path-breaking jazz from the US to Europe. (A long-time fan and admirer of Manfred Eicher's pristine and challenging Scandinavian-based ECM [Editions of Contemporary Music], I have seen Europe as a creative center for innovation for a few decades. Check out any album led by bassist Dave Holland, for example!) Having read a latest Fresh York Times essay describing Tourist as perhaps a watershed in jazz history, , I was eager to set Saint Germain loose on my musical is melody is inventive and complex, and captivating to hear -- accounting for its tremendous popularity in Europe and growing following in the US. As a listener who almost always finds musical interest primarily in harmony more than rhythm, I rarely answer very well to melody with few chord changes; the chord changes are what most easily touhces my heart. Yet Saint Germain's pieces work within one (or very few) chord(s) & central tone/pitch, and are nonetheless compelling for me in the extraordinary range of riffs and improvisation they can search in even a single chord. As the other reviews here accurately reflect, Saint Germain's "action" is in its rhythms and instrumental texture. Electronically-generated "synth" sounds and repeating rhythm loops are interwoven seamlessly with acoustic and more familiar electric instruments, both melodic and percussive. These elements combine in each tight and tasty piece to show a distinctive texture and sensibility, and instrumentation often changes dramatically, but with no rhythmic demarcation, as the piece proceeds. The non-synth elements are prominent enough to clearly distinguish this fine melody gfrom techno-jazz or techno pop (which can be as icy and alienating as the Brave-New World/Blade Runner techno-trailer -- complete with its thousands of 2-dimensional humanoid patrons -- currently now running at all United Artists cinemas).I am surprised I like this album quite so much. I dearly hope the fresh millenium will not focus overwhelmingly on rhythm rather than harmony (and its progeny, melody). But if that is the direction of the future, I'll take my trip on albums like Tourist. Clearly recommended -- both for its intrinsic beauty, and as a marker in the evolution of jazz.
Whereas the spirit of jazz seems to have been castrated here in the United States, giving birth to all sorts of perverse "smooth jazz" incarnations, elsewhere in the globe - particularly in France, it would seem - jazz is dancing and celebrating life as passionately as Germain is a wonderfully delicious mix of house beats and jazz improvisation; rather than rehash old jazz tunes and topic them to an electronica-plastered martyrdom, St. Germain - Ludovic Navarre and company - use live instrumentation for their creative and intoxicating mix. A small Latin groove here, some hip-hop and r&b there, a driving house beat and downright manic solos all fit together to remind us of what it is that jazz is supposed to is is one of the few CDs that I own that really seems to cross over and through the different genre gaps; it is smooth - that is, sexy and classy (without being pretentious) at the same time - but also has an excess of pizazz that keeps the listener engaged and flowing. Such genre-bending both subverts and converts jazz as it has been and propells it into a potential future-made-present; the rumors of a better sound are heard here as a whisper expressed in symphonic rhaps[?] oddly enough, everyone that I have ever played this CD for - whether a 19 year-old Marine, a banker in her mid-40s, or college students that prefer rap and its different metal cross-breeds - liked it. While I doubt globe peace will start with bringing the people together to listen to St. Germain's "Tourist", at the same time there really is something ... attractive about so a lot of various people being able to listen to and appreciate the same music. It whispers something of the beauty within human is is a really, really amazing CD; 5 stars does not do it justice as it is in a class of its own, far beyond the all-too-quantitative measurement of 5 stars. It breathes spirit and creativity - the best that melody as expression and imagination has to offer. Paint your canvas with some passionate fresh colors; bring the diaspora of your mates together...
I came to this album through the track "Sure Thing" which I overheard sitting in a coffee house one nce I was unable to just that track from Amazon I bought the full album. I did so with some trepidation because I was really only interested in that one track and I was annoyed at the thought of getting a lot of lame tracks for the single amazing one.I shouldn't have worried. I usually have to go through a fresh album a few times before I begin to fall in love with t this one. I'm writing this review while still only two thirds through the first time listening to ly confident that it's a amazing album because "Sure Thing" is second to latest on the play list and I haven't reached it yet.I'm glad I got the full album. It's joyful, restrained, cool and soulful all at once.
This ia a must have anyone who can appreciate the the Sound of greatness through headphones, not that this cd will sound any less of a masterpiece with out them....but it is with out a dote a cd better served jacked in. This album is so sharp with sounds once thought forgotten, it cuts like a blade. I cant think of a time when i haven't played this cd at a dinner party or a chill night with amazing mates When someone hasn't asked who this is and if i can create them a copy. ( I tell them to bye it as it is not often that someone makes a cd that every song is a must hear ) The cd starts out with "Rose Rouge" A very hypnotic Sounding song with a looping beet that puts you in a trance and starts to pull songs that only obtain better. "So Flute" The 3rd song witch is my faverts is just full of jazzy trippy sounds that makes you Respect the Amazing Edouard Labor's raspy flute as it's role as a much rhythmic and melodic piece of art. "Sure Thing," another high point of the release is what makes this cd a masterpiece that will latest for times to come. Centered around A vocal and guitar sample from blues guitarist John Lee is songs gets you Hook, Line & Sinker with its smooth and bluesy beet but I think it is the only time Hooker, Miles Davis, and Taj Mahal ever played together, St. Germain Has the globe in his pocket with this one. Do your self a favor and pick this cd up. "Tourist" belongs with (in my mind) The greats in down tempo music, the Thievery Corporation, Heavy Attack, Tricky & Federico Aubele's "Gran Hotel Buenos Aires". A must have!!!
My mate recommended this to me, and although I trust his musical expertise I was a bit skeptical because I don't quite like famous music, especially of the techno and electronica variety. Fortunately, as I'm listening to it, I'm fantastically surprised to experience just what my mate said. This disc is pure downtempo, jazzy house in the vein of Air, Etienne de Crecy, Alex Gopher, Bob Sinclair, and all the other cool house cats from France. Definitely recommended for fans of Discount, Different, Guidance, and Distance Records releases. If Blue Note continues to place out recs like this baby, we've got a major fresh force in dance music. Just weird they'd place out something like this.
A reviewer describes this as 'house meets jazz' and as such this is an exceptional cd. However it is distinctly NOT for the jazz purist. The tunes are bluesy, modal, funky, and (mostly) danceable. Granting that some of the rhythm tracks are sequenced, the instrumental work here is amazing to great. There is a lot of soloing and it all succeeds... not too flashy, with emphasis on tastefulness. The mixture of soloists --xylophone, sax, trumpet, keyboard, flute, and guitar-- keeps things varied (the flute, guitar and xylophone are outstanding). The heart of this cd for myself lies in tracks 4 to 9, so I moved the first 3 tracks to the back end on hard drive. "Sure Thing" (which first brought me here) is a sultry, smokey vamp over which the guitarist just burns.
A powerful quality map that has info of everything you'd wish when travelling by road, or just figuring out where an airfield or train station are. Maybe not as amazing as a US type street atlas, but this will give a darn amazing idea of what's around and how to obtain there. With this particular map, Tanzania is the main focal point, with Rwanda and Burundi being small brothers. But, it still gives a amazing idea of both these other countries, and considering it's very hard to search a amazing map that has them on it in any detail, I'd highly recommend getting this. It's a map that will stay real for years to come.
easy and effective. the only two reasons im not giving it five stars is because measurements are only given in meters not SF, with no method to change, and the + sign needs to be darker so you can see where it is better on a satellite photo. overall this application has lots of potential.
