As usual, the best tracks tend to come from out of nowhere. Take Sewa Kaffo for example. This Polish band combines jazz and world music easily, and blends traditional Western instruments with kora and tabla. A truly engaging listen.
Tonight’s long-play listen is a full album of England’s ethno-jazz-prog ensemble Jade Warrior.
Sure, it seems strange to think so now, but believe it or not, Chicago were a pretty amazing group at one time, before schmaltzy love songs took over their oeuvre.
