Formed in Berlin in 1995, the club music collective Jazzanova (Alexander Barck, Class Brieler, Roskow Kretschmann, Stefan Leisering, Axel Reinemer and Jürgen von Knoblauch) first gained exposure when famed U.K. DJ Gilles Peterson played the sextet's first production, Fedime's Flight. Their full-length debut, In Between, came out in 2002. Three years later, they released Blue Note Trip after gaining access to the iconic label's entire back catalogue. In 2008, Jazzanova released Of All the Things, arranging and writing most of the tracks, and recording musicians in studio on analogue equipment. Featuring soul legend Leon Ware covering himself on Rockin' You Eternally and an eight-strong background choir, the album sounded a new direction for the sample specialists.
