The Lions - This Generation (CD)
Inspired by reggae, sound system culture and the myriad of musical styles influenced by Jamaican music old and new, The Lions’ sound is firmly placed in soul music."All the guys in The Lions grew up on classic Jamaican records so since we began we have wanted to give our records that same edge and roughness that we grew up hearing on LPs by The Upsetters, Soul Syndicate, The Rockers Band and Roots Radics. The rhythm section was all recorded to tape, the Hammond buzzed a little, fuses blew and good mistakes were left in. We basically made the dusty reggae soul LP WE have been wanting to hear for years." – Dan Ubick (producer)The band draws together a dozen or so of LA’s elite reggae and soul forerunners who loosely coalesced as The Lions in 2007. Members of the legendary ska band Hepcat, Deston Berry and Alex Désert, form half of the vocal team, and the latter also has a successful career on screen, including roles in the films Swingers and High Fidelity. The other half is the sweet falsetto of Malik Moore and DJ stylings of Black Shakespeare, the charismatic cousin of Robbie Shakespeare (of Sly & Robbie fame) and co-runner of the i&i Sound System, a customised ice cream van bringing bass to the streets of the west coast and featured on the cover of both Saul Williams’ self-titled album and an issue of XLR8R Magazine.Other members include guitarist Dan Ubick, formerly of Breakestra, Macy Gray co-writer and collaborator Dave Wilder on bass, plus musicians who have played with the likes of De La Soul, Barrington Levy, Beck, Raphael Saadiq, Big Daddy Kane and Black Eyed Peas.

Ibrahim Ferrer ‎- Buenos Hermanos (CD)
Bereits 2003 veröffentlichte Buena Vista Social Club-Sänger Ibrahim Ferrer das Album „Buenos Hermanos“. Es ist ein Grammy prämierter Klassiker und Meilenstein kubanischer Musik. US-Produzent Ry Cooder (auch an der Gitarre zu hören) hat für das jetzt erschienene Re-Issue auf die Originalbänder zurückgegriffen, das gesamte Album neu abgemischt und vier bisher unveröffentlichte Stücke hinzugefügt. Der erste neue Track „Ven conmigo Guajira“ stammt aus der Feder des 1984 verstorbenen Komponisten und Bandleaders Francisco Grillo. Die handverlesene Kernband besteht zum größten Teil aus Kubanern, erweitert um einige Gäste, darunter Trompeter Jon Hassell. Insgesamt präsentiert die Neuauflage 17 ausgezeichnete Titel, neben dem bekannten „La musica Cubana“ und „Perfume de gardenias“ auch das unveröffentlichte, emotionale „Mujer“. Auch jetzt, Jahre später, hat „Buenos Hermanos“ nichts von seiner Anziehungskraft verloren und richtet den Blick auf kubanische Musik, die zeitlos wirkt. Many years ago i sang a song that went like this:When will it be my turn? If not next year, then maybe in the year 2000...‘Thanks to all my family for their support: my children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. And above all to mywife, Cachin, who has always stood by me. Without fail. To my manager, Daniel Florestano, for his help and guidance. Thanks to my friends and companions on this journey, Nick and Ry, and their wives Nicky and Susan, and to everybody who contributed to this album. And special thanks go to my wonderful fans, to all those people whose affection has made this possible... who would have guessed it would finally be my turn?Ibrahim Ferrer
