Album Notes

Liner Note Author: Monday Michiru.

Photographer: Takashi Matsuzaki.

Ten Years is a celebration of a label that's lived up to its name, putting out an eclectic mix of music -- everything from Brazilian to American roots-meets-Sweden and several points in between. Its focus has been on the jazzy side of the tracks and on Brazil, but at best, that's a generalization; the label has gone wherever its heart has led it. There's nothing here that hasn't already been released, sadly, but it's a chance to discover some gems that might otherwise have escaped attention, especially from the label's early days, like Moacir Santos' "Bluishmen" from 2004, or "Roseando" from the year before. The label has been more active recently, and more adventurous, as with the duo album from Eva Scow and Dusty Brough (represented here by "Sharon by the Sea") or Benjamin Taubkin's superb piano work. At three discs, it's probably a little too long -- two would have been fine -- but then again, maybe it's not possible to have too much of a good thing. ~ Chris Nickson
