Luigi Cinque & Tarantula Hypertext O'rchestra ::: Tangerine Café

This music is a lot of things. It's difficult to say whether it's world music or jazz or Mediterranean groove. Whatever it is, there's not a bad track or misstep on this CD. At times the music sounds like mid-70s Miles, at others like Gabriele Mirabassi's beautiful "Latkia Blend" CD, and at yet other times like some of the most evocative Mediterranean cafe music. It expresses Middle Eastern and North African landscapes, then shifts into almost straight ahead jazz. With more than ten musicians of diverse talants, "Tangerine Cafe" continually unfolds new surprises and stands up to many repeated spins on the player
