Loungey Latin Jazz

Sample some Latin/lounge/jazz-tinged music for this edition of New Sounds. There's music by Tex-Mex cumbia-fication practioners Charanga Cakewalk, along with exotic and soulful yet danceable Jewish-Cuban tunes from Septeto Rodriguez. Also, listen to David Kane's Them JazzBeards, where rock meets jazz meets film noir in a kind of campy 1950’s sci-fi way. Plus, hear music by M'Lumbo, a “brilliantly silly seven-piece jazz/funk/afropop improvisarama” (Richard Gehr,Village Voice) and something from Gustavo Santaolalla. And much more.
