    Rotations - Salif Keita and 8 1/2 Souvenirs

    Rastaman Jazz - Monty Alexander

    A meaningful pause, a soulful piano break, and the sizzle of a hi-hat are all it takes for Monty Alexander's new version of Bob Marley's "Jamming" to make a startling but entirely organic shift from the heavy riddims of Jamaican reggae to the straigh...

    Swinging Addis - Ethiopiques

    In the rich, varied, and bizarre history of African pop music, the absurd tragedy of the Ethiopian pop recording industry stands alone. Less than a decade separates cradle from grave. When 24-year-old Amha Eshete took the gutsy move of founding Amha ...

    Drum and bass is a genre notable for its rhythmic innovation and an ever-changing cutting edge that seems to mutate with the week's latest twelve-inch single. It's also all too often marked by a startling lack of musicality. A typical drum and bass s...
