FatDog: New Found Land

Read "New Found Land" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Musicisti scandinavi e britannici convergono in questo sestetto, che perlustra spazi folklorici di chiara matrice nordeuropea. L'impatto iniziale è molto felice, poi ci si assuefa un tantino, e l'eccessiva presenza di episodi vocali (spesso ripetitivi) contribuisce a smarrire, ad appiattire un minimo le ottime risultanze (e sensazioni) iniziali. Gli episodi più convincenti coincidono ...

Various: The Rough Guide to Salsa Dura NYC

Read "The Rough Guide to Salsa Dura NYC" reviewed by Ian Patterson

The Latin melting pot that was New York in the 1960s and 1970s gave rise to salsa dura, or hard salsa. The neighborhoods of Brooklyn, Queens and the South Bronx were teeming with immigrants from Cuba, Puerto Rico and South America, who brought together their instruments, fused their rhythms and voiced their social concerns in a ...

Various Artists: Rough Guide to the Blues

Read "Rough Guide to the Blues" reviewed by Robert R. Calder

It's not clear whether this CD has been compiled with the idea of it being listened to or as some kind of token or souvenir. You can have your own copy of Mamie Smith's “Crazy Blues," the first ever Blues recording? It would have been better, in representing the so-called Classic Blues, to have included Ida ...

Johannes Heretsch, the veteran DJ and Berlin radio host who ...
