Product Description

3rd solo album from Boom leader, combines strong songwriting with innovative arrangements, imaginative instrumentation, and inventive production by Arto Lindsay. The various recording locations, (Salvador, Rio de Janeiro, New York, Buenos Aries, Tokyo, Okinawa) reflect the diversity of sounds on the album. Brazilian music provides probably the strongest thread throughout, with elements of samba, bossa nova and other Brazilian music. Intertwined between these,are glorious Okinawan influences heard on songs such as "Snow in Okinawa" and "Chimuguri Utasha". In addition to the original versions these two tracks have been given a dancefloor remix by Chris Franck (of De Lata) Ryukyu Underground (UK/American duo) and Monaural. Elsewhere, "Perfect Love", "Deeper than Oceans" "Mandala" and "It's Me" feature that laid back yet funky Brazilian groove. Each varies in style and accompaniment, some with a decidedly more contemporary feel than others with "Eu Vou Junto" probably the purest Brazilian track of all. "Tokyo Story" has a jazzy hip hop feel, while "A Tango for Evita and Che Guevara" is a remarkable poetry reading.
