Laio

CD (Item 598487) Veronica Ferreiro, 2011 — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock

CD


5.00 40

A soul set from Spain – a really sweet debut from Veronica Ferreiro, a singer with depth to rival the best of the American underground! There's a surprisingly non-commercial feel to the music – nicely laidback production, and strong traces of jazz that really make the backings sparkle – and match the great range that Veronica brings to her music – making for a blend that's a lot like some of our favorite Neo Soul albums from the early years of the genre in the US! Lyrics are partly Spanish, partly English – and on the latter, Ferreiro comes across with a sensitive quality that could well have her reaching a wider audience over the next few years. Titles include "Floating Lovers", "Non Quero Crer", "Riverside", "Laio", and "Please Don't Fall In Love".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Naturally Me
Nia, 2014. New Copy
Every new album from Angela Johnson turns out to be a treasure – but this set may well be one of the best she's done in years – and a really strong step forward for the singer! The music has this full, rich style that almost feels like classic soul at times – not a retro 60s vibe ... CD

Kosi, 2014. New Copy
A really wonderful singer, with a very unique style – one that's rooted in jazz, but has an acoustic soul as well – set up perfectly here in these laidback arrangements that really let Kosi soar strongly on her own! The music is mostly jazz at the core – with wonderfully clean, ... CD

Kosi, 2013. New Copy
Kosi really grabbed us right away with the first track on this one – a sublime vocal reading of Charles Mingus' "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat" – done in a way that just features her own slow-scatting, wordless vocals over a spare electric guitar – then she held us fast with a ... CD

No Beginning No End
Blue Note, 2013. New Copy
A great new chapter in the career of Jose James – and a record that really seems to take his already-amazing vocals to a whole new level! In a relatively short career, Jose's already been turning a lot of heads with his work on other projects, his jazz-based recordings, and his debut for ... CD

Sunroom
Shanachie, 2014. New Copy
Avery Sunshine stunned us with her debut, but she really blows us away with this amazing second set – a record that has the singer not only deepening her sound, but also hitting this really classic vibe that takes us back to legendary music on Stax or Hi Records! The production and setting ... CD

Music Fan First
Blue Erro Soul, 2009. New Copy
Damn wonderful music from Eric Roberson – an artist who never lets us down! Eric's got a style that's unlike anyone else we can think of – warm, wonderful, and full of joy – without any posturing modes at all, and a down to earth sensibility that's kept him at the top of our ... CD

Morning Light
Expansion (UK), 2013. New Copy
The first we've heard from this UK group – but given the strength of the record, we're betting we'll be digging them for many years to come! The album's a great no-nonsense contemporary soul affair – put together in a really old school sort of way that recalls the energy of Brand New ... CD

Jarrod Lawson
Jarrod Lawson, 2014. New Copy
A stunning debut from Jarrod Lawson – a singer we fell in love with right away – and who we'd rank right up there with some our favorite mellow soul artists of the 70s! Yes, the cover's got a look that's more indie rock – but Jarrod's got this righteous vibe and sense of flow ... CD

Buda (France), 2013. New Copy
One of the best volumes in the Zanzibara series so far – a set of contemporary recordings, but done with a very exotic, other-worldly sort of style – one that shows the series' strong link to the Ethiopiques material on the Buda label! Most instrumentation comes from percussion and ... CD

53rd St Ghost
Oracle, 1996. New Copy
A killer batch of modern spiritual soul jazz – with a classic sound that reminds us a lot of the 70s work on labels like Tribe or Strata East! The New Composers Ensemble is led by vibist Paris Smith, an underground Chicago jazz artist who cut a few very enigmatic albums on his own – ... CD

Crying Song
CTI/Wounded Bird, 1969. New Copy
A landmark record – the first album that flutist Hubert Laws cut for CTI, and the beginning of a very important partnership with the label! The record is a sublime exploration of sound and space – very different than Laws' 60s Latin sides for Atlantic, and handled in a baroque mode ... CD

Su Majestad El Dancing
Uniko (Canada), Mid 60s. New Copy
Classic charanga work from Orquesta Sublime – grooving here at a slightly mellower pace than some of their other 60s albums, but at a level that's still more than rhythmic enough for the dancing promised in the title! The instrumentation is nicely varied – so that sometimes the violin ... CD
