Yeah the 1st LP 'Motion' was a real breath of fresh air... as far as I know the process was: they would get a bunch of musicians in a studio and play some breaks... they would then jam along to the breaks and record what they played, then they would take those recordings and chop them up to make the final record... with each release their sound has got more mature but each one is definitely worth a listen.
got about 30 seconds into the youtube clip and decided this was worth cramming into itunes. good find
From the first listen to these guys "all that you give" has been a favorite tune of mine for years. Check it out.
cinematic orchestra's been around for a minute, check out the rest of the Ninja Tune record label, there are some serious musicians on there
