St. Germain Tourist on 2LP

Blue Note's electronic jazz 2000 release Tourist, the second full-length by veteran French DJ and producer St. Germain (Ludovic Navarre), achieved the #1 position on Billboard's Contemporary Jazz Albums chart, and the album and its creator won France's most prestigious music award, the Victoires de la Musique, in jazz, live performance, and electronic categories (Jazz Discovery of the Year, Live Discovery, and Best Electronic Album).

With more than three million copies sold worldwide, Tourist is an electronic music staple featuring nine evocative, jazz-infused tracks still heard at clubs, restaurants and fashion shows around the world. Diamond-certified in France and Platinum or multi-Platinum in Belgium, Canada, Netherlands, New Zealand, Spain, Switzerland, Australia, Austria, Italy, Ireland, Norway, and Portugal, the album is an influential entry in the electronic music genre.

In his four-star Rolling Stone review of the album, David Fricke praised St. Germain's skilled electronic-meets-jazz approach: "A sly dog with a disciple's touch, Navarre shows respect for the spirit, if not the letter, of classic jazz. He gives his live soloists, including trumpeter Pascal Ohse and saxophonist-flutist Edouard Labor, room to breathe, if not blow wild." Rolling Stone later touted Tourist as one of 2000's best albums and rightfully so!
