Tales of Buenos Aires & Other Distant Lands
Spirojazz a/k/a/ Spirodon Leon is an exciting new multi-instrumentalist with roots simultaneously in jazz, world music, funk, and rock with emphasis on rhythms and often danceable rhythms. However, the music makes you want to stop and listen, as it often beautifully melodic and unpredictable. Imagine a world where the music of Santana, King Sunny Ade, Latin American electronica, Euro-Jazz, McCoy Tyner, Yusef Lateef, Weather Report, and the rhythms of Baaba Maal and Peter Gabriel come together into a cohesive synthesis that sounds startlingly unique and greater than the sum of it's parts. His new album, Tales from Buenos Aires and Other Distant Lands is an incredible trip around the world which will have you waiting for his next release, 'History of Our New Age' due out in early spring 2009.
