    Editorial Review

    The great world music album that-never-was has finally been realized. The project that became the Buena Vista Social Club has borne its own extraordinary fruit.

    In 1996, a group of Mali's finest musicians were due to fly into Havana for a speculative collaboration with some of Cuba's most brilliant singers and instrumentalists. For reasons that have never been made clear, the Malians never arrived. A very different album was recorded: The Buena Vista Social Club. The rest, as they say, is multi-million selling history.

    But what about that original album? What riches might have been revealed in the interaction of virtuosi from one of Africa's most musically rich territories, and from Cuba whose music has origins in Africa, and has been hugely influential on the mother continent?

    Now we have the opportunity to find out. World Circuit Records' Nick Gold, the man behind the 1996 venture, finally brought the original invitees together with a stellar line-up of additional talent at a series of inspirational sessions and the great lost Afro-Cuban album will be released fourteen years after originally planned.

    Fronting the Cuban team is the cowboy-hatted singer and guitarist Eliades Ochoa, singer of the great Buena Vista theme "Chan Chan." The two original Malian invitees are multi award-winning ngoni lute master Bassekou Kouyate and the extraordinary Rail Band guitarist Djelimady Tounkara, both universally agreed to be among the world's great instrumentalists. Joining them are Eliades' Grupo Patria, amongst Cuba's longest running and most revered bands, the mercurial kora genius Toumani Diabaté, legendary Malian griot singer Kasse Mady Diabaté and the innovatory balafon player Lassana Diabaté.

    "It was as though the musicians had been holding back their ideas and energy for that moment," says Gold, who produced the album, with the great Buena Vista engineer Jerry Boys at his side. "After we'd waited so long, it all came together remarkably easily and spontaneously. The group had never played together before but the music just poured out and it continued to flow over the next few days." Seventeen songs were recorded in five days, with all the musicians playing together "live" in one large room. A second session was convened some months later and produced a further nine songs.

    The title AfroCubism is advised. This is an album that throws the elements of Cuban and African music in the air and lets them fall in entrancing new patterns.

    Album DescriptionThe sleeve photo of a crocodile's eye with a faint image of Rodrigo and Gabriela superimposed, suits the artists' desire for something which didn't shout "Mexican guitarists" or "Couples." "It reminded us of Tamacun, the famous Mexican eccentric who is in Ixtapa where we lived for a while".

    Tamacun -"Tamacun's message is to teach kids to respect nature." He handlescrocodiles, and tourists come to photograph him.

    Diablo Rojo - Inspired by a wild rollercoaster called 'Red Devil' at atheme park in Copenhagen, Denmark. Three rides in a row, each.

    Viking Man - Another Danish inspired piece. The Viking Man was a homelessguy who encouraged Rod & Gab to tough it out on the streets, busking inminus zero conditions at Christmastime. John Leckie adds radio static.

    Satori - Experiencing self doubt shortly after arriving in Ireland, Rodrigoy Gabriela were at a low ebb. No money, poor English and a deep sense ofuncertainty. Only an unshakeable faith in perseverance kept them going.Satori describes the Zen - like moment of enlightenment they felt when theycame through the storm.

    Ixtapa - "Ixtapa is a very beautiful, very Mexican town." Roby Lakatos'wildly soaring violin solo is a perfect counterpoint to the melodic andpercussive guitars.

    Stairway to Heaven - "Ixtapa was our very own Stairway to Heaven!" Rod &Gab's take was initially inspired by Stanley Jordan's interpretation of theLed Zep warhorse. Growing from snippets in their live show, their uniqueversion is at once both respectful and innovative.

    Orion - This epic reworking of the Metallica song is the second timeRodrigo y Gabriela have covered Messrs Hetfield, Ulrich & Co: "A tribute tothe style of music we love, it's what kept us playing the guitar throughall those Spinal Tap years"

    Juan Loco - The first attempt at recording this album in Mexico in Summer2005 resulted in three weeks of sunbathing, beer drinking and power cuts.Enter Mr John Leckie, legendary producer of Radiohead, The Stone Roses andMuse, to name but a few; to midwife Rod & Gab's musical vision into whatyou hear today. 'Juan Loco' ('Mad John') is their Mexican nickname for MrLeckie.

    PPA - "The first P of PPA stands for Pinche, a Mexican term meaning f**kingasshole. This is for all the people in the music business who think theyknow what's going on but actually don't have a clue". ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    The long awaited follow up to their 2006 self-titled debut, which has enjoyed worldwide sales in excess of half a million albums.
    Includes Bonus DVD with tutorials, exclusive interviews, & live concert footage !
    11:11 was recorded in Ixtapa, Mexico and produced by Rodrigo y Gabriela, with John Leckie co-producing one of the tracks. The album was mixed in Wales and London by Colin Richardson, best known for his work with Slipknot and Trivium.
    Comprising 11 new original compositions, 11:11 is the band s personal Gracias to 11 musicians, both past and present, who have inspired them along the way. Alex Skolnick of metal gods Testament guests on the album, as do widely respected acoustic veterans Strunz & Farah.
    If their self-titled debut was a successful attempt at capturing the unbridled dynamic energy of their incendiary gigs (mostly recorded live in the studio, with very few overdubs); then the new album sees them developing their core sound into something more sophisticated, intricate and varied. At the heart of the sound is still the stunning interplay between Rodrigo s dazzling lead work and Gabriela s unique rhythm play; but the base soundscape is now subtly supplemented by percussion, occasional piano and a fresh arsenal of stringed instruments from around the world, including oud and sitar. And - whisper it quietly the introduction here and there of electric guitar.

    Capitol Latin Presents, Juan Luis Guerra's latest album, "A SON DE GUERRA," which will be released on June 8. An acclaimed singer, songwriter, musician and producer, Juan Luis Guerra is one of the most credible and respected names in the music Industry. A multiple award winning artist, Guerra, has proven that his music not only crosses oceans, but musical boundaries with accolades like: winning 2 Grammy Awards, 9 Latin Grammy Awards, 2 Billboard Awards and 10 Latin Billboard Music Awards. Right when the production was wrapping on "A Son de Guerra," the prodigious musician undertook the titanic labor of organizing the benefit concert "Song of Hope for Haiti" along with some of his famous colleagues to help raise funds for the victims of the earthquake in Haiti. The event was a complete success, as well as his historic participation a few days later in the New Orleans Jazz Festival. But if you ask him to account for all of his incredible achievements and honors, Juan Luis Guerra wastes no time reflecting on such things, preferring to concentrate on the now: "Every day is a new beginning," he affirms, "I'm always thinking that the best is yet to come." On this new album, "A SON DE GUERRA," we can expect Juan Luis' unique style as he self-produces the album. Highlights include special guest artists Colombian rocker, Juanes, and American trumpeter and composer, Chris Botti, adding more flavor to the mix that allows Juan Luis' music to easily cross genres and market boundaries worldwide. ...

    Amazon.com essential recordingOriginally released in March 1964, this collaboration between saxophonist Stan Getz and guitarist João Gilberto came at seemingly the end of the bossa nova craze Getz himself had sparked in 1962 with Jazz Samba, his release with American guitarist Charlie Byrd. Jazz Samba remains the only jazz album to reach number one in the pop charts. In fact, the story goes that Getz had to push for the release of Getz/Gilberto since the company did not want to compete with its own hit; it was a good thing he did. Getz/Gilberto, which featured composer Antonio Carlos Jobim on piano, not only yielded the hit "Girl from Ipanema" (sung by Astrud Gilberto, the guitarist's wife, who had no professional experience) but also "Corcovado" ("Quiet Night")--an instant standard, and the definitive version of "Desafinado." Getz/Gilberto spent 96 weeks in the charts and won four Grammys. It remains one of those rare cases in popular music where commercial success matches artistic merit. Bossa nova's "cool" aesthetic--with its understated rhythms, rich harmonies, and slightly detached delivery--had been influenced, in part, by cool jazz. Gilberto in particular was a Stan Getz fan. Getz, with his lyricism, the bittersweet longing in his sound, and his restrained but strong swing, was the perfect fit. His lines, at once decisive and evanescent, focus the rest of the group's performance without overpowering. A classic. --Fernando Gonzalez1 ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    The story of these romantic recordings of traditional trio music plays like a cinematic saga. It starts with two Jewish boys who fled from the Nazis, settled in Cuba and fell in love with the island and its pleasures, especially its beautiful women and seductive sounds. It ends 50 years later with the release of this CD of vintage recordings that survived the Cuban Revolution, a second exile journey, and finally decades of neglect in storage in rainy Seattle.

    All the songs on Cuban Trios of Casa Marina are familiar and beloved Latin standards from a genteel, bygone era in popular Latin music. Like the Buena Vista Social Club, this record evokes nostalgia for classic sounds from the 30s, 40s and 50s. But instead of remakes of old standards, these are the original recordings made in pre-Castro Havana, now available to the public for the first time. A different revolution, the digital one, allowed for the transfer of the original analog tapes from 1958.

    The two immigrant brothers who made it possible are Harry and Morris Schrage. They were just 10 and 13 when their family had to flee the Nazi invasion of their native Poland in 1939. A cross-Atlantic voyage brought them to Havana, then the sin city of the Caribbean and a haven for gambling, fabulous floor shows and first-class bordellos. The Schrages settled in neighboring Matanzas, where their enterprising father rebuilt his fortune making sneakers. As young adults, Harry and Morris worked in the family business, earning enough to live the life of privileged playboys. The fun-loving siblings soon became regulars at Havana's most exclusive and cosmopolitan brothel, the fabled Casa Marina, which drew a wealthy international clientele.

    Casa Marina was known for the exceptional beauty of its bevy of women, under the care of grandmotherly Madam Marina. But Harry and Morris didn't just appreciate the ladies. They were also impressed with the quality of the strolling musicians who added just the right mood for romance. The Trio Zamora and Trio Melodicos played love songs on demand for a dollar a song, with a rich repertoire of popular boleros (Besame Mucho), cha cha chas (El Bodeguero), cumbias (Mi Cafetal) and even Mexican huapangos (El Crucifjo de Piedra).

    Harry was a budding audiophile and it was his idea to record the groups. He set up a makeshift recording studio in his bedroom, using an Ampex reel-to-reel tape recorder that he bought in Miami and was state-of-the-art at the time. All the songs on this CD were recorded during those home-studio sessions in 1958. Musically, they are true to classic trio style: lyrical acoustic guitars, vocals in three-part harmonies, and light percussion. In those days, trios were as ubiquitous in Latin America as garage bands in the U.S. But artists added distinctive flavors in different countries. Many of the songs here were recorded by the top trios of the day - Mexico's Trio Los Panchos, Puerto Rico's Trio San Juan and Cuba's Trio Matamoros.

    Harry had no immediate plans to release the tapes in Cuba, and soon it would be too late. The family fled the Revolution in 1960, but Harry made sure to bring the trio tapes with him. Morris settled in Southern California, where he became a successful car dealer. Harry became a top executive with Boeing in Seattle, where he lived until he died of a heart attack in 1973 at age 46. Still among his possessions at the time were the old recordings - a set of seven, 7-inch Scotch magnetic tapes in their original boxes. More than 25 years later, Morris inherited the tapes from his brother's widow, Maya, who suggested they be released as a tribute to her late husband. The wish came true when Morris teamed with his old friend, Jimmy Maslon of Ahi-Nama Music, to issue this CD. ... Read more

    Buika unveils herself on the cover and bears all on her third album,
    Niña de Fuego. Buika does away with the costumes that usually
    decorate album covers, stripping away all but her feelings.
    When she moved to Madrid and recorded her first album, she showed
    the never-ending possibility of her skills as a singer. With her second
    album,Mi Niña Lola, produced by Javier Limón, she got the
    credibility, the recognition, the awards, the performances, and the
    exciting reviews that left people breathless.
    Her career cannot be summarized in a sentence but when she opens her
    mouth you realize there is no singer like her.
    Buika now arrives with her third album, Niña de Fuego (Girl
    of Fire) again teaming up with producer Javier Limón. On this album,
    Buika returns to the Spanish copla, performs for the first time several
    ranchera songs, and also some new songs composed by herself and Javier
    Limón. The album is full of songs about love and longing affection.
    Buika sings of her personal experience in the lyrics that she and Javier
    Limón wrote and composed.

    Album DescriptionOn July 28th, Putumayo will release Brazilian Café, an enchanting addition to its Café series. Brazilian Café brings together a captivating selection of samba, bossa nova and jazz by Brazilian stars and up-and-coming talents. In the early 1960s, legendary Brazilian composers Antônio Carlos Jobim and Vinicius de Moraes hung out in an Ipanema beachside café where they would often see a beautiful neighborhood girl, Helô Pinheiro, walk by. She became the inspiration for one of the most popular songs of all time, "Girl From Ipanema." The global bossa nova boom can be traced to that moment of musical inspiration at a Brazilian café and most of the artists on this CD drew inspiration from Jobim, de Moraes and other songwriters who followed.Brazilian Café includes songs by legendary singer and songwriter Djavan and jazz star Rosa Passos. The album also features songs by talented artists such as Paris-based songwriter Márcio Faraco, samba revivalist Teresa Cristina, electro-bossa hipster Katia B and eclectic vocalist Ceumar, all of whom have had songs on other Putumayo collections. As with all Putumayo CDs, this collection features songs that have not been released outside of the country of origin by exciting young talents such as Italy-based Toco, Salvador natives Alexandre Leão and Carlinhos Cor Das Aguas, bossa singer Marcia Salomon, and Rio's Arranco de Varsóvia and Ana Costa, who are among the hottest new voices in samba today.A portion of Putumayo's proceeds from the sale of this CD will be donated to Terra dos Homens Brazilian Association, which promotes children and adolescents' rights. ...

    Album DescriptionA remarkable revolution is taking place in Latin music these days, as electronica and remixing meet the more traditional rhythms of Argentinean tango, Afro-Cuban son, Brazilian bossa nova and Colombian cumbia. On Putumayo’s new collection, Latin Lounge artists such as Sidestepper, Si*Sé, Charanga Cakewalk and others prove that there can be a magical blend of modern musical trends and traditional Latin styles.

    While Latin Lounge features several internationally known artists, it also highlights discoveries such as Bebe, a singer-songwriter whose recent collaboration with electronica DJ Carl Jean has made her a star in her native Spain. Another rising star is the Spanish band Amparanoia, a leading band in the mestizo (mixed) movement, so-called for its boundary-crossing blend of flamenco, Afro-Cuban music, hip-hop, electronica and other influences.

    Latin Lounge is the latest in a series of successful Putumayo releases focusing on exciting new directions in down tempo electronica and world music that includes the collections World Lounge, Euro Lounge and Sahara Lounge.

    Editorial Review

    Sultry, seductive and infused with that inimitable samba swing, the music of Luisa Maita embodies the modern spirit of Brazil. Inspired by the bustling urban life found in her native city of Sao Paulo, Lero-Lero has a contemporary vibe with influences from alternative pop and downtempo electronic music melded with an acoustic foundation deeply rooted in samba, bossa nova and MPB. Hailing from a country overflowing with musical talent, Luisa Maita rises above the fray as one of the most promising young singers of her generation.

    "Her voice is soulful and jazzy and the spirit of Sao Paulo gives the music a tropical edge that is vibrant and enticing." - Jason Bentley, host of Morning Becomes Eclectic, KCRW

    "Recalling recent singers like Ceu and Cibelle with more experimental and beat-oriented tracks, tempered with a sweet and soulful voice. "Ai Vem Ele" is hands down one of the best tracks in Portuguese I've heard, employing a capoeria rhythm devised by Baden Powell--the melody lingers long after the song ends. After that stunner ends, the unmistakable cuica leads the listener into the sensuous "Desencabulada," and the highly danceable "Fulaninha." And, of course, the title song is what initially drew me into Maita's world. It's a lovely place to inhabit, and I look forward to spending more time here." - Derek Beres, Huffington Post

    "The Sao Paolo native is a captivating stylist who, like Bebel Gilberto and CeU, finds inspiration not only in traditional samba and bossa nova but classic jazz vocal music, R&B, and modern electronica and dance music. Lero-Lero, Maita's debut as a solo artist, finds her striking a comfortable balance within those parameters without being enslaved by any of them."

    Editorial Review

    Amazon.comHe's best known, and deservedly so, for the jazzy music he wrote for Charles M. Schulz's "Peanuts" characters, but San Francisco-based Vince Guaraldi was also a highly regarded trio and ensemble pianist whose laid-back grooves are still a treat to hear.Greatest Hits samples his various stages, from big hits "Cast Your Fate to the Wind" and "Samba de Orpheus" to his work with Latin guitarist Bola Sete ("Days of Wine and Roses") to, yes, his beloved "Peanuts" compositions ("Good Grief," "Linus and Lucy," "Christmastime Is Here").--David Horiuchi ...
