Maxdb

This is still one of my favorite CDs after owning it for 5 years
Reviewer: MaxdB (Earth) - Coming out of left field,
this CD is an amalgam of South American influences,
American pop, studio finesse, clever synthesizer
programming, world music, folk music, jazz, island
music, and great melodies. Vocals are in Spanish,
Portugese, and English. If you have a high-end audio
system, there is a remarkably huge sense of space on
most tracks. The songs are catchy and you'll be
whistling them or running through them in your head.
This is still one of my favorite CDs after owning it
for 5 years. My tastes run from classic rock to folk,
bluegrass, jazz, blues, progressive rock, classical,
progressive country and very selective world music
like Ladysmith Black Mambazo and The Chieftains. Sound
effects are blended with the music on many tracks -
jungle sounds including bird calls moving around in
the trees in track 1, a moving stream in another
track, a "rain stick" in another track, a plastic tube
whirled overhead in another track. Very interesting
and very visual (in that if you sit and listen to the
music without distractions, it invites
visualizations). This is easy to listen to, pleasant,
melodic music, lots of synthesized sounds mixed with
some real instruments. Very rich and attractive female
vocals from Maria Marquez who also contributes some
writing and male vocals from Frank Harris (Oakland,
CA) who also writes the music and is probably
responsible for all the clever use of synthesizers.
Really interesting, really different. Play it for your
friends, they'll think you're amazing for finding this
gem.
