Product Description

About the Artist

Putumayo World Music was established in 1993 to introduce people to the music of the world's cultures. The label grew out of Putumayo clothing company, founded by Dan Storper in 1975 and sold in 1997. Co-founder Michael Kraus joined Dan to launch Putumayo World Music and establish a non-traditional sales division. Putumayo World Music has become known primarily for its upbeat and melodic compilations of great international music characterized by the company's motto: "guaranteed to make you feel good!" 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. By combining appealing music and visuals with creative retail marketing, Putumayo has developed a unique brand identity - a rarity in today's artist-based music industry.

Format: Audio CD
Another fine CD from Putumayo, best known for its CD compilations of "world music". Most of their releases emphasize a specific geographical region or country, while some are by "style".

While the homelands of the artists included on this disc range from New Zealand to Mexico to Cameroon to Canada the emphasis seems to be on African beats with Cuban/Mexican rhythms.

Hugh Masekela - who had hits in the US in the 1960s ("Grazin' in the Grass" hit #1 on the pop charts), he is now back in South Africa. US drummer Billy Cobham mixes his band with Cuban musicians. Katarina Pipi lives in New Zealand (not a country with an identifiable music style) but her Maori music echoes Hawaiian singing. And the oddest combination here is the band Sherele, a Klezmer band from Mexico.

There's no one here playing in the Traditional Jazz style and no one using bebop or, thank you Putumayo, "smooth jazz". The sole American singer is Heather Rigdon, an independent label artist. Masakela is probably the only easily recognizable name. But, then again, Putumayo wants to introduce listeners to artists that are new to them. They accomplish this with this album, with selections taken from 2004-2008 releases.

This CD is great for lovers of jazz with an International flare. It's a great 'mood lifter,' It's very nice as background music while entertaining or for just easy listening.

Such a wonderful cd........my daughter loves it, too! And, we actually ended up sending it to a music-loving friend of hers who was just starting chemo treatments and we felt it would be something that he could listen to and relax and perhaps, mentally, escape with it for a while. I am ordering another for me and one for my daughter for Valentine's Day!!!

Love this collection, the sounds are so inspiring and different than the jazz I'm accustomed to. My favorites are La Mer, Young and Naive, and I can not forget Summertime at Bamako. Jazz Around The World is a pleasure to listen to and to have, very enjoyable.

I've been to a few Jazz festivals in Montreal, and over the years I have heard a lot of jazz music with international flare - Mexico, African, Spanish, etc. This CD has a good mix of international flavor. Good purchase - CD came in good shape and on time. I would suggest this CD for people who enjoy Jazz with a flare (not smooth Jazz...).

A great testament to the global influence of jazz music, artists from different countries and regions of the world putting their own spin on America's classical music. I picked this up in Teavana while I was picking up tea to make iced tea, the music and the beverage were a good combination.

Another winner from Putumayo. Their production qualities are excellent as are their selections. My husband received this as a gift. He plays over and over since receiving it.
