Putumayo's CD covers feature the distinctive art of Nicola Heindl, whose colorful, folkloric style represents one of Putumayo's goals: to connect the traditional to the contemporary.

AS THE SAYING GOES - GOOD THINGS ARE WORTH WAITING FOR.

PUTUMAYO'S NEWEST COMPILATION "EURO GROOVE" HAS BEEN
WELL WORTH THE WAIT - OF THEIR MANY PREVIOUS WORLD

NOT A BAD CUT OUT OF THE TEN TRACKS OFFERED - MODERN,
REFRESHING AND DEFINITELY A CD THAT WILL REMAIN ON

THANKFULLY THIS IS NOT A DANCE FUSION GROOVE NOR IS IT
TAINTED WITH SOME EURO BANDS RENDITION OF STATESIDE
HIP,TRIP OR FLIP HOP

BEST TRACKS - LEBANESE TOUFIC FAROUKH'S "DESTINS ET DESIRS'
CZECH !DELADAP'S "LE SHIN"-GERMANY'S 2RAUMWOHNUNG'S
"MADCHEN MIT PLAN" - ITALYS MYSTIC DIVERSIONS "E PA PA" -
AND FRANCES MOUS ET HAKIM'S " MINA".

POSSIBLY IS ONE OF THE BEST RELEASES OF 2008 SO FAR.

THIS IS NOT A BUDDHA BAR/HOTEL COSTE CLONE,IT'S BETTER

PUTUMAYO.

MY ONLY COMPLAINT - ENOUGH ALLREADY WITH THE NAIVE

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun tour of European groove January 3, 2013
By Carter
Format:Audio CD
In general the Putumayo CDs are high quality, but Euro Groove is especially good. This is one of my wife's and mine favorite CDs because of the upbeat and infectious music. So far we have bought one or more full CDs from four of the bands on the collection.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Let's do the Continental! April 16, 2008
Format:Audio CD
"Euro Groove" is one of Putumayo's best Continental releases. It blends, merges, and grooves "Old Europe" (France, Germany, Italy) with the "New Europe" (Hungary, Czech Republic) There's a consistently smooth jazz theme throughout. Luckily, it's soulful smooth jazz. It's full of passion.

It opens energetically with the Arabic-flavored "Destins et Desirs" from the Franco-Lebanese duo of Toufic Farroukh and Jeanne Added. Jazzamor's "Nuit Magique" and 2raumwohnung's "Madchen Mit Plan" show the jazzier side of Germany. Teutonic jazz exists. One can imagine these songs playing in some smoke-filled Berlin cabaret. Italy grooves in a more humorous way. Forget the refined fashion shows in Milan. Fiamma Fumana's "Check in" and Mystic Diversions' "E Pa-Pa" are both campy and fashionable. "Check in" takes a sly look at the constantly life on the road for musicians. These songs are tongue in cheek... passionately planted in the cheek. !DelaDap, a Gypsy band with members from the Czech Republic, Hungary, and Austria is, unfortunately, not as well known as Balkan Beat Box (Balkan Beat Box) and Gogol Bordello (Super Taranta) Their "Le Shin" blends gypsy violin with bossa nova. Martial brings in European rap with "Cette Fille." Guateque All Stars and Shiva have the loveably cheesy "Superwhirly." Chumbawamba, famous for their Chumbawamba- Tubthumper contribute the anti-war "Jacob's Ladder", using a grim story from WWII, albeit with a pop/Celtic blend. Imagine Celtic Thunder or Riverdance making political commentary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Putumayo never disappoints April 14, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My musical taste is eclectic. When I entertain, my company always wants to know what I have loaded on my iPod. If it's rocking, you can bet it's from a Putumayo collection.
Make sure you buy the CD with the liner notes.
