Raging Fyah Reggae

Today I wanted to share some new sides I’ve been taking pleasure in at home. We start with a reggae band, Raging Fyah, I just discovered. I enjoy the bass lines and also the fantastic edge shots, normal of excellent roots reggae. After that we listen to 2 fascinating and also beautiful songs. First, a song recommending Christ’s 2nd stopping by Gregory Porter, a singer that has truly grown on me. “Take Me to the Alley” is this cuts title track from Blue Note his second album. The following tune attributes Kurt Elling as the guest vocalist on the Branford Marsalis Quartet’s brand-new CD. We hear “Practical Arrangement” an uncommon love song.  The quartet and also Kurt will certainly run at the Facility for the Art of Efficiency at UCLA in February.

Gary Burton, in “Epistrophy” is featured on vibes. Child of Chicago-based veteran tone sax older Von Freeman, Chico Freeman, went away years ago after he, on the INdia Navigation label, released a bunch of LP’s. I frequently wondered just what occurred to him. The solution is: he relocated to Austria. We hear him with a wonderful Austrian rhythm included with his music. Freeman’s Spoken Into Existence album is a love track to his children.

The final three cuts populate the Lusophone universe (i.e. Portuguese speaking nations). Initially, a brand-new CD that is pouring over with both a saudade that is sweet from vocalist Ceuzany and morabeza, which is described as a sort of Cape Verdean variation of aloha in Hawaii, the unique Cape Verdean ingredient. I discussed morabeza throughout a visit to Cape Verde a few years ago.

We do with 2 classics from Brazil, Dorival Caymmi performing one 1957 samba, then from the wonderful film Black Orpheus, a bossa nova . This series turned out nicely IMHO. I hope you appreciate it also.
