To Scratch That Itch, Roots, Rock and Rhythm
Various Artists, Luaka Bop 1991

When the weather is changing and fall drops in on us, I always tend
to start playing more popmusic. Atmospheric stuff with lots of variety.
Something quite else is this cd on the prestigious Luaka Bop label of
David Byrne. His selections are outstanding and surprising. This album
is from 1991, already 28 years of age but feels like yesterday. Mr. Byrne
treats us with music from the UK, Brazil, the US and Cuba. A nice bunch
of songs in different styles and moods, listen ..

P.S. I discovered one strange mistake, track #9 is not Agepê as written
on the cd’s cover. It is Martinho da Vila with Claustrofobia.

Als het weer omslaat en de herfst zijn onstuimige intrede maakt, neig ik
steeds vaker naar popmuziek. Atmosferische mengeling van stijlen en
stemmingen. Iets tamelijk anders dan wat je hier gewend bent is dit. Op
het prestgieuze Luaka Bop label van David Byrne komt deze bonte ver-
zameling tracks die stammen uit het Verenigd Koninkrijk, Brazilië, de USA
en Cuba. Het gaat van links naar rechts en andersom, luister ..

P.S. Ik ontdekte een vreemde fout, track #9 is niet Agepê zoals de
cd omslag vermeldt. Het is Martinho da Vila met Claustrofobia.

Bossa Nova Gosto de Loronix – Various Artists

Bossa Nova Gosto de Loronix

For those who like to listen to laid back Brazilian music
from the sixties and seventies, I made us this compilation.
Before you start commenting, let me be the first to say;
You’re right, this is not only bossa nova. This comp also
contains some samba, chorinho and MPB for instance. I just
picked a nice cover from the pile of Loronix material, after
all, it was made under the spell of Zecalouro who taught us
so much about this wonderful almost forgotten music.
Consider it another tribute to Loronix and Zeca,
Hope U like..
