Amazon Says: A fascinating set from three strong and contrasting musical personalities: Norwegian saxophonist, Brazilian guitarist-pianist, and US bassist making purposeful and creative music together on this previously unreleased live recording. Carta de Amor documents music captured at Munichs Amerika Haus in April, 1981. Two years on from the much-loved albums Magico and Folk Songs, the trios improvisational empathy and sensibilities were further honed by experiences as a touring group. Repertoire includes five pieces from Gismontis pen, with the title track heard in two variations, opening and closing this enthralling double album. Also heard here are Garbareks folk song arrangements and an extended, freewheeling version of his composition Spor. Charlie Haden brings in La Pasionaria, from the repertoire of the Liberation Music Orchestra and All That Is Beautiful, not previously documented on disc. Recorded by Manfred Eicher and Martin Wieland in 1981, mixed from original analog tapes by Eicher and Jan Erik Kongshaug in 24 bit/96 kHz in 2012. less...

Amazon Says: Matthew Houck has a highly distinctive artistic voice and a refreshing, rolled-sleeves approach to his work. 2007's Pride a spare and haunting work of country, southern gospel and forlorn folk-ish drone first caused ears to swivel in Phosphorescent's direction. He followed it with To Willie, then 2010's Here's To Taking It Easy, an enthusiastic plunge into country rock and rolling Americana. Now, his sixth album Muchacho flashes yet another color in the subtly shifting Phosphorescent spectrum. less...

Amazon Says: Nonesuch Records presents Nomad, from the Tuareg guitarist, singer, and songwriter Omara "Bombino" Moctar. At the invitation of The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach, the Niger-born artist and his band traveled to Nashville for the recording, helmed by Auerbach at his studio, Easy Eye Sound. Before 2009, Bombino was little known outside Saharan Africa, where his career consisted of regionally available cassettes and roles in local bands. In few years, he has begun to find a following abroad. He sold out venues across the U.S. in his first tour here, in 2011, and has garnered the praise of outlets ranging from Pitchfork to NPR's Fresh Air, whose critic Milo Miles called Bombino "a young performer with the charisma and probing imagination to become the first Tuareg star. " Auerbach, winner of the 2013 Grammy for Producer of the Year, became a fan after a friend saw him perform and thought Auerbach might appreciate his unique style of desert blues. less...

Amazon Says: At the heart of this album are contemporary singer-songwriters who have honed their craft by exploring the country's rural traditions. Texas native Terri Hendrix has become one of the folk world's most endearing voices and delivers the heartwarming "Prayer for My Friends," while the eclectic Josh Ritter offers a tribute to the city of "Harrisburg." RobinElla was trained in the church before launching into the public eye, while Ruthie Foster's 2002 debut earned her comparisons to Tracy Chapman, Ella Fitzgerald and Aretha Franklin. Robert Earl Keen, one of the leading stars of the movement, and Old Crow Medicine Show give a nod to America's fascination with transportation on "Ride" and "Wagon Wheel" respectively. The Little Willies, a group that includes Grammy-award winners Norah Jones contributes "It's Not You, It's Me" is taken. The development of Americana has also allowed artists who may have been considered supporting musicians to take center stage. Banjo virtuoso Alison Brown began her career as a member of Alison Krauss' Union Station before pursuing a successful solo career that earned her a Grammy in 2000. Fiddler Carrie Rodriguez's talents captured the attention of Texas legend Chip Taylor and together they have received accolades from the Americana music community. Other relative newcomers, including Kevin Kerby of Mulehead and Eliza Lynn, have found a home within Americana's walls. Kevin recorded "Frankie Lee" in 2005, while Eliza Lynn contributes the unreleased but aptly titled "Sing a New Song." A portion of Putumayo's proceeds from the sale of this CD will be donated to America's Second Harvest - The Nation's Food Bank Network, which feeds local communities who struggle with persistent hunger on a daily basis. less...
