I expected…different, from an album with a giant sun with a face on the front.  Jamaze is an interesting group.  They play an interesting mix of smooth-ish club/lounge with some more “world” themes and rhythms.  Around the World indeed.  Most of the album is a gentle vocal-based jazz group with aforementioned variety beats, but then there’s the obligatory spoken word track to speak out against outrages perpetrated by someone, somewhere.  So that was kind of a turn-off but otherwise it’s a solid album.  Not my cup of tea, but yall give it that listen ya feel.
