Gilberto Gil- No Norte Da Saudade

Go buy it.

The true test of music's brilliance comes when you're listening to something and think, "Why do I even bother to play to anything else?" That happens a lot with much of Gilberto Gil's work. Listen to how the giant of Brazilian music fuses native sounds, Bob Marley's magic and African guitar tones on 1977's Refavela.

Guitarist Al Casey has died.

The Junior Boys show disappointed me last night. My impressions and a photo are here.
