1. Puro Huayno, Antologia de la musica Peruana (Wisepack ltd, 2000)

For a few years I've been in love with Hauyno music from Bolivia and Peru, to a point where I sometimes have to force myself to put something else on; it's addicting. It's like its own musical language, and I will never be ...

1. Puro Huayno, Antologia de la musica Peruana (Wisepack ltd, 2000).
È da qualche anno che sono innamorato della musica Hauyno dalla Bolivia e dal Perù a tal punto che devo sforzarmi per ascoltare qualcosa d'altro, in pratica sono dipendente. Musica con un proprio linguaggio e con una componente ritmica difficile da tradurre. Questa compilation ...

Pete Oxley and Nicolas Meier: Travels To The West

Read "Travels To The West" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Guitar duos may not be quite as rare as hen's teeth in the world of jazz, but they're far from common.

Read "Deemus" reviewed by Nic Jones

Drummer Barrett Deems was a man with a pedigree, who took in stints with violinist Joe Venuti from 1937 to 1944, and a four-year run with trumpeter Louis Armstrong in the 1950s. The first years of the following decade found him keeping the musical company of trombonist Jack Teagarden. All of these affiliations are clues to ...

George Barnes Quartet: Don

Read "Don" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

One cannot help experiencing the warmth and friendliness of this recording. Session guitarist George Barnes could not seem more real than when he bantered with the crowd at the Concord, California's Willows Theater in the Summer of 1977. Don’t Get Around Much Any More was to be Mr. Barnes’ last recording, as he died from a ...
