Description:When you listen to the first song of Commonly Unique by The Real Group, you might think, "What is Hajime thinking? This is not jazz!" Well, you are right, but I don't care. I mean, I don't care whether this music can be called jazz or not, because it's simply fantabulous!

The Real Group is a Swedish "a cappella" group formed in 1984 by five students at the Swedish Royal College of Music. The present album was originally released in 2000 and won the Swedish Grammy Award. It is considered by many fans to be their towering achievement.

"Wait a minute," did you say? Right. I said that they are an a cappella group. By definition, they use only their voices and perhaps occasional handclaps and finger snaps. No instruments. I repeat. NO INSTRUMENTS WHATSOEVER. They do use effects and manipulations, but all the sounds in this album were created without instruments.

Go ahead and listen to the sample audio files again. Do you think that's a drum set? Go back and listen again. Are you certain that there is an electric guitar? Listen again. Now, you're beginning to understand how special this group is. As you recover from the initial shock, you'll begin to appreciate their clever songwriting and imaginative arrangements. And then you'll go back to admiring their astonishing vocal skills all over again. Enjoy!

Originally released in Sweden in 2000. This Japanese version was released by Spice of Life in October 2006.
