This is the type of CD that needs to be on the radar screen of every club enthusiast. "Cafeteria Hear." is the aural condiment that accompanies the food served at hip restaurant Cafeteria, which has locations in New York and Miami's South Beach. It was compiled by Cafeteria co-owner Mark Thomas Amadei and Grammy Award-winning DJ/producer Peter Rauhofer. But please note: Rauhofer, who also mixed the set, eschews his signature tribal house sounds for jazzy house, sweet soul and atmospheric chillout. This gorgeous collection spotlights Bonnie Bailey ("Can Hardly Wait"), Lamya ("Black Mona Lisa"), Vanessa Daou ("Show Me"), Chantal Kreviazuk ("Leaving on a Jet Plane") and Yoko Ono ("Walking on Thin Ice"). Major kudos for also including the prototype for all things chillout: "Summer Madness" by Kool & the Gang.—MP
