Quinteto El DespuesCalles Lejanas ... CD
Yellow Bird (Germany), 2013. New Copy ... $9.99 15.99
A wonderful batch of contemporary tango tunes from Quinteto El Despues – a group that features some sublime work on bandoneon by Victor Hugo Villena! Villena's got these dark tones and deft turns in his phrasing – matched with bass, guitar, violin, and piano – used at a level that has all the bold energy of some of the best new tango material by Astor Piazzolla! The sound is both timeless and immediate – and the group gets a bit of guest help on piercussion and cello at a few points, plus some lyrics from Sandra Rumolino. Titles include "Paris 2009", "Reflexiones", "Un Tren A Jose Paz", "Calles Lejanas", "Youkali", "Milonga Para Coco", and "Anos Atras". CD

New VariousMirror To The Soul – Carribean Jump Up, Mambo & Calypso Beat 1954 to 1977 (2CDs/DVD) ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), 1950s/1960s/1970s. Used 2CD & DVD ... Out Of Stock
A tremendous overview of Carribean sounds from the 50s through the 70s – served up with exactly the kind of depth and care we've come to expect from the folks at Soul Jazz Records! The collection goes way past the obvious – and way past any obvious cliches as well – to really dig deep and draw some strong lines between the grooves of nations like Cuba, Colombia, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, Trinidad, and St Thomas – all of whom are represented by really rhythm-heavy and uncommon sounds! Most numbers are heavy on percussion, but also show a bit of jazz and soul influence as well – the continuing influence of American styles on the sounds of the area, but always taken in by the local talents, and made into something new entirely. There's a number of heavy groovers here that lie somewhere in the territory between Jazzman mambo reissues and Honest Jon's compilation cuts – and titles include "I'll Be Right There" by Techniques, "Pa Los Obreros" by Frank Ferrer, "Elegua" by Gina Martin, "Nassau Cha Cha" by Andre Toussaint, "Saturday Night Reggae" by Mark Holder, "My Conversation" by Slim Smith, "The Queen Sings Calpyso" by Lord Brynner, "Chango" by Celia Cruz, "Canela" by Peanuts Taylor, "Repentino" by Grupo De Experimentation, "Pa Coco Solo" by Fajardo, "Don't Blame It On Elvis" by Fabulous McClevertys, "Mambo Caliente" by Bebo Valdes, and "Vitalolgy" by Duke Of Iron. Also includes a great documentary on DVD – Mirror To The Soul, the story of the British Pathe record label in the West Indies! CD
(Please note that the DVD is PAL coded, includes the original slipcase and book.)

Cesaria Evora & OthersClub Sodade ... CD
BMG (France), 2003. Used ... $5.99
Lovely stuff! The work of singer Cesara Evoria is remixed by a host of modern club talents – no surprise, as her best tracks of the past few years have been getting plenty of action on the 12" front – taking her from the world music scene into the clubs, with very surprising results! The record is really pretty darn wonderful overall – appealing to fans of a modern groove, but touched with all the depth, soul, and history of Cesara's fantastic voice. Titles include "Angola" remixed by Pepe Braddock, "Miss Perfumado" remixed by 4 Hero, "Nutridinha" remixed by Kerri Chandler, "Besame Mucho" remixed by Senor Coconut, "Angola" remixed by Carl Craig, "Negue" remixed by Chris Prolific, "Sangue De Beironia" remixed by Francois K, and "Bondade E Maldade" remixed by Osunlade.
