His newest band Banquet of the Spirits is augmented here by an array of his most distinguished musical associates in a delightful program of experimental Brazilian pop songs. Another wonderful album from this master songwriter and percussionist, the driving force of Beat the Donkey, Vira Loucos and so much more.

This was released on Parlophone Records in Europe in 1999 but this is from the Blue Note pressing in the U.S. that came out in 2000 and it honors the music and legacy of Duke Ellington through mixing up jazz with his blues, soul, and shrimp gumbo ya-ya.

On their self-titled debut album, Supergenerous makes the most of their small yet very deep pool of talent. The character of the group is led by percussionist Cyro Baptista, who pulls out a host of sounds from his multi-cultural goodie bag, playing Balinese gongs, symphonic bass drums, cowbells, metal refrigerator drawers, as well as the more traditional snares and cymbals. A unique flavor is added by the maritime Canadian sounds of guitarist Kevin Breit, and Cassandra Wilson helps the whole thing gel with her beautiful, smooth voice. This jazz trio owes a lot to the folk traditions of the world, but their sound is anything but old.

Trey Anastasio's The Horseshoe Curve is a collection of cuts taken off the shelf as a stopgap between the guitarist's "real" albums – at release time, Anastasio was in the fourth month of a court-ordered yearlong drug rehab program. It's too bad in a sense, because it's such a dazzling recording, taken from a period between 2002-2004 when he was touring and recording with this woolly mammoth of a band; it's also far above the level of the two recordings he released during that period: Shine (2005) and Bar 17 (2006).

Saxophonist Peter Apfelbaum gathered together a new version of his Hieroglyphics for this record date, inspired by rediscovering fragments of music left over from the 1970s. Influenced strongly not only by avant-garde jazz but world music, the Hieroglyphics are, at times, reminiscent of Abdullah Ibrahim's groups, open to the rhythms, harmonies, and melodies of American, Latin, European, African, and Asian music. While the band has a strong group sound, Apfelbaum's nine originals cover a wide variety of music including the vocal-dominated "Titiwa" (featuring Abdoulaye Diabate), a number showcasing the leader on harmonium, some ensemble-oriented pieces, and others with short and fiery solos. Although not for the jazz purist, there is plenty of spirit to these performances, serving as an opportunity for Peter Apfelbaum to look both backwards and forward simultaneously.

Bring together an all-star lineup of singers and musicians, match them with accessibly romantic melodies and radio-friendly arrangements, and the results will either be lightweight pabulum or superb high-quality pop music. In the case of producer Jason Miles' A Love Affair, it's unquestionably the latter. Even after 30 years on the world music scene, Brazilian musician/composer Ivan Lins may not have had a high profile. However, as this tribute recording demonstrates, his music is as fine as anything that has come out of his native country since the bossa nova heyday of the early '60s. Taken individually, each of these songs is a piece of joyous musical exuberance. Taken as a whole, this recording is better than an hour with any radio station you're going to find on the dial or online.
