Artist Track Comments
Big Guitars from Texas  Ride of the Ruthless   Options  
Cedric Im Brooks  Lambs Bread Collie   Options Cedric Brooks has been playing sax in Jamaica and around for years; he joined the Skatalites after Roland Alphonso died. The band on his new solo album, on Honest Jons, is Cedric Im Brooks & the Light of Saba (2003) 
Jackie Mittoo  Dr. Ring Ding   Options From "Last Train to Skaville" on Soul Jazz Records (2003) 
Cedric Im Brooks  Sound   Options  
The Skatalites  Guns of Navarone   Options From "Hi Bop Ska"-- their amazing 30th Anniversary Album-- with Monty Alexander, Lester Bowie, David Murray, Toots Hibbert, Prince Buster and others helping out 
Akoya Afrobeat  Je Je L'Aiye   Options Featuring Cedric Brooks as a guest on this tune; they played live on Rob's show a few weeks ago. The band includes-- as they say on their website-- "members from Panama, Ghana, Benin, South Africa, Japan and the US, this 13-piece ensemble embraces unity and positive vibrations." Find out more at akoyamusic.com 
Fiji  Indigenous Life   Options Jawaiian music from the South Pacific; Fiji is George Veikoso 
Cyril Pahinui  Hawaiian Cowboy   Options The original is copyright 1936 although you can see Sol K Bright do it on YouTube from 1986! Cyril does this at a faster tempo in his duet album with Bob Brozman but this laid back instrumental version is so sharp. 
Brudda Iz (Israel Kamakawiwo'ole)  Panini Pua Kea   Options Aside from his sweet voice and ukelele band, Brudda Iz was also a Hawaiian nationalist-- speaking and singing for the rights of the native peoples of the South Pacific and standing up to the colonialists. Yeh, the USA! 
A.P. Sharpe his Honolulu Hawaiians  Ukelele Lady   Options From "Steeling Round the World: Hawaiian Style" (Harlequin, 2203)-- as Hawaiian steel guitar. I know this song from a cover by Jim Kweskin Jug Band 
Professor Longhair  Mardi Gras in New Orleans   Options Guitar by Snooks Eaglin, who died this week. RIP/Laissez Le Bon Ton Roulez! 
Snooks Eaglin  Fly Right Baby   Options From "Country Boy in New Orleans" on Arhoolie, recorded in 1955 & released on CD in 1991 
The Dirty Dozen Brass Band w/ Dr. John  It's All Over Now   Options Vinyl allows me to play the wrong speed if I want! From 1987 "Voodoo" album on CBS Records 
Wild Magnolias  Ho Na Nae   Options That's Snooks again, playing a mean guitar 
Robert Munro  Brisas Del Zulia   Options Acoustic music from Trinidad carnival 
Rude Girls  Kaka Lala   Options More Trinidad, from Carnival 95. Follow the instructions! 
Joanna  Diga Ai   Options Brazil 
Mario Vickram Sen & Tiffany Sen  Clear As A Bell   Options Find out more about "Gypsychology" at innergypsy.com 
Taraf de Haidouks  Cacuria Dances   Options Authentic Gypsy music, on Nonesuch: "Band of Gypsies" (2001) 
War  Lowrider   Options Yes, this is the theme music to the George Lopez show. Chicano music from the boys who gave us "Cisco Kid" and more. 
Los Madrugadores  La Parranda   Options Corrido about carousing 
Joe Cuba  Quinto Sabroso   Options Born Jose Calderon in Spanish Harlem, Joe Cuba was the Boogaloo King for decades. Fania just reissued this album. Bang Bang. 
Joe Cuba  Joe Cuba's Latin Hustle   Options How about one more?! The guy just died; it's the least we can do. Try & stand still. 
Cachao  Camina Juan Pescao   Options Soulful classical jazz bass from one of the best. Check out "La Leyenda" on Universal, 2008. 
Cachaito  A Gozar El Tumbao   Options  
Cachaito  Cachaito in Laboratory   Options  
Los Zafiros  Un Nombre de Mujer   Options Cuban do-wop from the 1960, with Cachaito on bass & Manuel Galban on guitar; from "Bossa Cubana" on Nonesuch (1999)

Master Musicians of Jajouka with Bachir Attar  If the Moon Loves You   Options  
Otha Turner the Afrossippi Allstars  Bounce Ball   Options The is fife & drum music from north Mississippi-- with an amazingly African flavor that we all thought was lost in the new world. 
John Sinclair & His Blues Scholars  Some Other Blues/Like Sonny/The Drum Thing   Options A segment from "Full Moon Light"-- recorded live in New Orleans, 9/20/04. Dig those horns. 
Henry Butler  Tee-Nah-Nah   Options Okay, a little more mardi gras! As cool as this number is, it doesn't do justice to Henry Butler, a fine New Orleans jazz/blues piano player 
Beau Joque and the Zydeco Hi-Rollers  Damballah   Options Rockin' zydeco for y'all 
Thai Elephant Orchestra  Phong's Solo   Options An amazing feat, produced by Dave Solider & Richard Lair. Working with skeptical Thaii mahouts (trainers) they taught these intelligent rhythmic animals to play! And this is volume 2, on Mulatta Records. 
Thai Elephant Orchestra  Floating Down the Pin River   Options Sorry that I ran out of time. Isn't this great stuff?!

Love the Mario & Tiffany Sen track. I think they actually perform as "Inner Gypsy".

Thanks for the comment, Lew. Yes we do perform as "Inner Gypsy," and if anyone is interested you can hear the album, "Gypsychology" streaming free on our website: InnerGypsy(dot)com. We are presently working very hard on a follow up called (possibly) Gypsy Moth (and other things with wings) which should be out next year.
