(((Sonorama Podcast 17)))

Hello everyone, this week we loosened up the theme a little so we hit a couple things all over the map. Charly brings us some selections from a recent dig in Milwaukee  including some righteous latin jazz from New York’s Jerry Gonzalez whose track “Ya yo me cure” fuses some santeria with Afro-Cuban goodness, a trio of Argentine triplets sing  a song about their vision of what life will be like in the year 2000, plus some goodies from both of us from the Caribbean, a little soul from Nassau’s The Blue Notes. Also in the mix, I’ve been really digging some latin inspired grooves from the African continent, including some deep sounds from the mighty Bembeya Jazz National with a haunting cut that gave me chills the first time i heard it. Finally, Charly wraps things up with some local grown poetics about our lovely city from David Hernandez and his Street Sound. I love you too Chicago. Enjoy the tunes EB &CG.
