Between the countdown to the elections & the massive storm that churned up the coast before it slammed into NY/NJ, the need for soothing has seldom been greater. Dark skies & political posturing influenced everyone's mental landscape. Like seeing the now-iconic image of Jane's Carousel lapped by the rising waters on all sides, you may feel overwhelmed by the dark or you may focus on the unquenchable light. With luck, the music in this set will keep the storm at bay & these tunes will enchant while you wait for the waters to recede.

The story here will be whatever personal meaning you pull from the wreckage. One track in particular that caught my attention was the Sweetback reimagining of Bobby Caldwell's 70s hit ‘What You Won’t Do’ -- loved hearing that hook again. I also find myself responding to Alice Russell on the downside, regaining my balance with Razoof & then drafting back upwards on Gelka's steady optimism at the closing track. Your mileage may vary.


Oh snap, there was a playback error!
