Don't really have much else to say this week, so here's some of the New Releases:
WORLD MUSIC: Continuing our fabulous haul from ARC:
- Valentina Ponomareva: Gypsy Romances from Russia
- Osvaldo Chacon y su Timba: Salsa Afro Cubana
- Vivienne Dogan-Corringham and George Hadjineophytou: Popular Turkish folk songs
- American Indian Powwow: Music of the Navajo Indians
- Saor Patrol (Pronounced "Shore Patrol"):
- Two Headed Dog. (Basically the same tunes as Duncarron...but they add distorted rock and roll rhythm guitar to the pipes and drums, and it sounds fabulous!)
- The Modern Mandolin Quartet: Americana features a quartet of mandolins performing famous works by Aaron Copland, George Gershwin, and other American composers. Fun!
- Celine Ricci and Daniel Lockert: Le Bestiaire. Songs for soprano and piano--all about animals.
- Concord has released their Summer 2012 sampler, featuring remasters of some of the greats. Always good.
- Lou Pallo of Les Paul's Trio: Thank You, Les. You're not going to hear guitar playing this good for a looooong time--enjoy!
- Girlyman: Performed at the last ALMA Sundays at Six concert, and they're pretty darn fabulous.
- Michael Connolly and Miller McNay dish up a tasty serving of both original and traditional tunes. Great stuff!
Until next time...
