✨✧ VariousGilles Peterson Presents Havana Cultura – The Anthology (3LP set) ... LP
Brownswood (UK), New Copy 3LP ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic overview of the wonderful sounds that Gilles Peterson has been cooking up in Havana since 2009 – the rich array of artists he's collaborated with as part of the bigger Havana Cultura project – which has given great exposure to a whole new generation of brilliant Cuban talents! The approach on many tracks echoes the vibe on Peterson's Brownswood label – a mixture of roots with more contemporary 21st soul touches – on sounds that do a lot to bring the Havana vibe into contact with the musical changes in soul around the world – but all without ever resorting to easy tricks or gimmicks, or dampening the spirit at the core at all. That careful balance has always been the key Peterson hallmark, and it's greatly appreciated here – on titles that include "Yemaya" by Chillum Trio, "Rezando" by Havana Cultura Band, "Traigo" by Seu Seppie, "Yambu (Daisuke Tanabe & Yoshi Horikawa rmx)" by Havana Cultura Band, "El Ruso" by Dayme Arocena, "En Lo Profundo" by Danay Suarez, "Ay" by Arema Arega, "La Rumba Experimental (Motor City Drum Ensemble rmx)" by Havana Cultura Band, "Soy Cubano" by Kerkstra with Sexto Sentido, "Arroz Con Pollo" by Havana Cultura Band, "Calle F" by Mala, and "La Revolucion Del Cuerpo (part 1)" by Havana Cultura Band with Ogguere, Danay Suarez, and Obsesion. 3LPs in a heavy box!

MachitoMucho Mucho Machito ... LP
United Artists, Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
A tight little Machito album from the 60s – produced by Leroy Holmes, and done with a bit more punch than some of his other records from the time! The format's similar to other Machito sessions – in that some tracks have Machtio singing with a larger backing group, and others focus on more romantic styles from Graciela – making for a fully-rounded session that really shows off the ensemble's talents. The standout cut is "Tanga", a really hard-swinging mambo title with some driving percussion and fierce horn parts – and other titles include "Baja Del Caballo", "Yo Soy La Rumba", "Asi No Se Quiere A Nadie", and "Entre Juantio Y Jose".

✨✧ David VirellesAntenna (10 inch LP – with bonus download) ... LP
ECM (Germany), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Wonderfully weird sounds from David Virelles – and a record that's not entirely sure of its genre, but that's what makes it so great! The whole thing's almost like one of those cool indie releases we used to get from New Music Distribution Service back in the day – a set where improvised sounds and modern composition come together – as Virelles plays piano, prepared piano, Hammond, and other keyboards – and works in sound samples – as does cellist Alexander Overington, who's the constant musical partner on this journey. Guests include alto saxophonist Henry Threadgill on one track, plus percussionists Marcus Gilmore, Mauricio Herrera, and Los Seres (a fictional percussion ensemble created by Virelles) – and two tracks feature vocals, by guests Roman Diaz and Eltan Brebaje Man. Titles include "Binary", "Water Bird Headed Mistress", "Threshold", "Rumbakua", and "El Titan De Bronce". LP
