This is the follow up to Arto Lindsay's "O Corpo Sutil (The Subtle Body)". The primary elements from that recording are here but more refined and enhanced. It keeps the Brazilian percussion, quiet keyboards & bass, and sparse acoustic guitar. But this time the percussion gets a small heavier and there's a few more electronica and breakbeat accents added; just a logical progression from "Sutil" to later releases like "Noon Chill" and "Prize". In fact, I don't think Arto Lindsay plays any of his distinctive (to place it mildly) guitar on this recording; guess this is strickly a crooner's recording. The original tunes and cover songs are about mystery, longing, and seduction. "Q Samba" is a bright small samba number, both playful and seductive; the Al Green cover "Simply Beautiful" features some perfect acoustic guitar from Marc Ribot and Hammond B-3 from Bernie Worrell. "Mundo Civilizado" is sung in Portuguese but you'll know what it's about; some subjects transcend languages. Prince's "Erotic City" gets remade from an uptempo pop number to a lazy, languid slinky groove. Hearing Lindsay sing the unprintable chorus in his nonchalant unassuming style is more shocking than hearing Prince singing it with Sheena Easton. Amazing chillout melody ... ? Works for whichever you need.
I'm a large Arto Lindsay fan, I have all of his albums, and this one (Mundo Civilizado) is still my favorite. It's a amazing put to start.If you like this, also check out Hyper Civilzado which is re-mixes of songs from this album. His newer albums are also awesome, I recommend Invoke and Salt. But I love them all.
The Gipsy Kings prove to us again how brilliant they really are. Este Mundo is a very amazing CD containing amazing songs. Standout tracks are: Baila Me, Sin Ella, Habla Me, Oy, El Mauro and the attractive No Volvere. The album also includes three amazing instrumental tracks. The best of them are Lagrimas and the slow Ternuras. Very recommended for any melody fan.
I discovered Rumba Club at a concert at the popular Blue Note. I instantly bought their CD, "Radio Mundo". This album demonstrates a excellent balance between jazz and salsa. Musicians are truly terrific, especially when it comes to drums. One of the very best albums I have had the opportunity to listen to in the latest year.
as músicas e os videozinhos ganham até 6 estrelas. mas esse aplicativo falta uns funções básicas que me impedem concientemente a fazer qualquer compra. 1. não tem botões de trava tela ou de repetir 2. os vídeos começam do inicio quando sai da tela o aplicativo 3. não tem as musicas extras como no spotify. se resolver esses questões vai melhorar muito e viu com certeza investir prar todos os videos! obrigado pela atenção.
Even better than his previous CD "Barrio Bravo" Celso Piña gets truer to his roots and acoustic sound with this effort. Very various from "Barrio Bravo" this is a mainly acoustic small-combo showcase of acordeona and guacharaca with superb sound and style. Maybe you will miss the hard hitting numbers of the previous record but in this case the globe melody influences are totally integrated to Celso's style making something worthwile listening.
While seemingly progressive, Mundo Civilizado is not as intimate and playful as The Subtle Body. Not sure why that is the case but I suspect it is something to do with Arto Lindsay's voice and style that lends itself well to kind of nearness. There are some amazing arrangements and sounds on Mundo, but Subtle is my pick for its boldness in the modern and its reverence back to bossa.
Unfortunately, it is rare treat to search such a phenomenal and thorough release these days. This cd becomes addictive. Pleasant English and Portuguese vocals, percussion and tastes of perfect Bossa Nova influenced electronica. I do believe most humans should own this tasty morsel.
Not knowing a word of Spanish has not prevented me from finding the Gysy Kings and more specifically this CD to be a work of life-affirming profundity. A few of their ballads (Habla Me, No Volvere, Triste Pena) give me chills. And their faster, "wall-of-guitars" songs (Baila Me, El Mauro) are exhilarating and exciting in a method I've never heard elsewhere. This is melody as it should be, simple, affecting, galvanizing, resonant. If you're not satisfied to be alive after listening to Baila Me, I'll send you twelve bucks. Nicolas Reyes has a powerful, special delivery in which he knows exactly where the notes are but instead warbles his method to them and around them. Thank God this man found his real calling. What a loss for melody (and for my life) it would be if he hadn't found a career as a singer.
I search it impossible to sit still when I play this CD. Invariably, the rhythms have me up and dancing in seconds. And although my ability to understand Spanish is quite minimal, the vocalists show the notice of each song so well and with amazing emotion that intuitively I search I understand the gyst of each song. If you like accoustic guitar, syncopated rhythms and vocalists that are obviously having wild fun, then don't pass up this CD.
This is a collection of highly talented, highly personable guys. I would go hear them at locations like "The Cafe Tatoo", in Baltimore. they were beautiful much the pioneers of Latino Jazz. They dared to be special and began a movment of latin jazz melody and dancing along the east coast. Check out their erlier albums too, especially Desde La Capital. You will not stand still. Guys, if you read this hello, from Judy's sister!
Sólo después de repetidas audiciones pude valorar completamente el aporte de este diso. Al comienzo me parecía que era tan sólo bossa nova mezclada con pop, pero realmente es todo lo contrario: es un acercamiento bastante más novedoso a la música tradicional del Brazil, partiendo de un interés por cuestionarla y enriquecerla. Por este motivo, nos encontramos con que la instrumentación es muy variada: a la guitarra, el bajo y las percusiones tradicionales se suman vientos, teclados antiguos, secuencias, bases (similares al trip hop) y ruidos (estos últimos tratados con muy buen gusto), que contribuyen a "ensuciar" agradablemente las melodías y sus acordes. La producción es interesantísima: mezcla muy bien los sonidos ya mencionados, deja que cada instrumento muestre todas sus características propias (usándolos muy idiomáticamente), matiza mucho, hace pausas y crea una enorme gama de ritmos, velocidades y estados de ánimo: no sólo hay melancolía, sino que también se siente urgencia, angustia, o despreocupada alegría; y, a pesar de todo esto, la voz de Lindsay (en un interesante contraste) permanece impasible. En el fondo, su propósito no es sólo crear (generalmente acompañado) o interpretar (en una par de casos) buenas canciones, sino también vestirlas adecuadamente, para que encontremos al interior de ellas mayores matices, detalles que se demoran en hacerse notar y que obligan a escuchar con atención. A mi juicio, aquí lo que podría considerarse adorno es absolutamente esencial.P.D.: recomiendo escuchar, dentro de la misma línea, los discos de Vinicius Cantuaria (que toca guitarra en este disco) y los dos discos que Lindsay le produjo a Caetano Veloso ("Estrangeiro" y "Circulado").
Excellent albums don't come along too often, so grab this one while it's still being made. The words are metaphysical without being mystical, strange phrases sneak up on you, begging to be played again and deciphered; the melody is a sublime samba for another, I hate to say it, millemium; and the beats, ohh the beats: jarring without being out of place, quiet and danceable (almost) at the same time. Listen to this album over and over again, for there is much to be discovered with repitition.
Despite the only true poor one which is also the album title song, every other single chop of Tercer Mundo is a masterpiece alone, building up the bridge between the immature and the most experienced Fito leased right on the rising of a fresh decade it brings on the first of what would become later a legacy of even more ellaborate works from one of Argentina's most remarkable artists e excellent mix between youth and experience.
Les doy 4 El juego se me trava mucho. Especialmente cuando acabo una partida. Siempre tengo que cerrarlo y volver a abrirlo. A veces ( casi nunca) también ocurre durante una partida y me hace perder. Por favor intenten solucionarlo. Se los agradecería. P.D: El juego esta bacano.
If you're a huge fan of GK, like yours truly, then this CD sounds kinda repetitive and very few of the tunes are new and new. If you are not familiar with this amazing international group, then do yourself a favor and check their newly remastered (2013-14) albums; Best Of GK, and Love Songs (Cantos de Amor). Satisfaction guaranteed!
This is the Rumba Club's 4th recording for Palmetto Records. As with a lot of of their past recordings, they look back at the melody of some of the legendary figures in jazz: John Coltrane (Straight Street) and Donald Byrd (Tanya).However, it doesn't end there, Rumba Club pays homage to three of Latin music's greatest dance bands: Orquesta Aragon (Quien Sabe Sabe), Eddie Palmieri's La Perfecta (Mi Corazon Te Llama) and Sonora Poncena (Soneremos El Tambo). This is melody for listening or dancing, take your ucer Andy Gonzalez says he was drawn to the Rumba Club because, "it showcases some very talented percussionists from Cuba, Puerto Rico and The Dominican Republic playing with these top notch jazz performers."In addition, there are original compositions by band members. I am told they place on a amazing present as well. I look forward to seeing the Rumba Club perform live the next time they are in Fresh York.
Back in the 1990s, I was a large fan of Selena Quintanilla's melody and I had a copy of this album. Over time, my other copy was damaged and I recently bought myself a fresh one. I really have fun all of the songs on this CD, but my favorite track is Yo te sigo queriendo. I definitely recommend this album to any Selena fan.
For those who dance! this is a amazing album. They take a lot of of the tunes we are all ready famiiar with and create them sound latin. Several of the songs have a amazing rumba beat, ie: She Will Be Loved and some have a amazing salsa beat, ie: I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For. If you do Ballroom dance then this is a amazing album to add to your paylist! Just about every song on here will obtain you moving on the floor!
I'd like to say that the order arrived before expected, and that the disc was beautiful amazing by itself. However, I compared the cover with another of the same Disc (which I lost, so here me ordering another) and allow me tell you that this latest one was of lesser quality, and seems like it was exposed to the sun for a bit too much, since its colors have faded. Apart from that, nothing else. Amazing buy.
I ordered this cd as a birthday bonus for my 23-yr old daughter, who heard about it on NPR. I got one for myself too! The sound is so cool...I especially like the method they incorporated the latin sound into Sting and Coldplay and U2...who's a thunk it??!! One of my fresh faves. (And she loves it too!)
I choose this CD because it's a amazing compilation of Cuban along with my Buena Vista Social Club CD's gives a amazing cross section of well known Cuban artists.Excellent melody to just kick back and listen to if the mood suits you, or obtain up and salsa!This CD is highly recommended if you need to add it to your collection of Globe Music.
