Ernesto Lecuona’s Cuban classic Malaguena here in a wonderful solo rendition by Egypt’s Omar Khorshid.
Quite interesting info bits about a rare Exotica album.
Polynesia – The Buddy Collette Septet at Trunk Records.
How’s this for fusion? Here we have The Sachal Studios Orchestra, based in Lahore, Pakistan, playing an innovative cover of “Take Five,” the jazz standard written by Paul Desmond and originally performed by The Dave Brubeck Quartet in 1959.
You know I started a little series of versions of Exotica classics when I released The Enchanted Sea. So coming soon to an online store near you is the next rendition I recorded – Tabu (or Taboo as it is also known). The recording is mastered, the artwork is ready, the license is paid
