CD Review: New Releases Arriving From World Music Artists Paul McCandless And Mister G

Legendary musician Paul McCandless will be releasing a new anthology recording titled "Morning Sun: Adventures With Oboe." It features 16-recordings of McCandless with the award-winning Paul Winter Consort over the course of the last 45 years. McCandless was a member of the Paul Winter Consort from 1968 to 1972 and has also performed with Wynton Marsalis and Pat Metheny. This new release gathers together some of the best recordings, including the swiftness of "Bright Angel" as you can just imagine the music gliding along the sky. Other highlights include the call of the "Whooper Dance" and the beautiful flow of "Witchi Tai To," which includes lead vocals by Native American singer John-Carlos Perea along with the spiritual energy of "Um Abraco (A Big Hug)." The music takes you on the wings of "Eagle" and aboard the emotions of "The Last Train," before closing with the quiet rise of the "Morning Sun."

Latin Grammy award-winner Mister G returns with his new album "Mundo Verde/Green World." It will be released on September 15th and features 11-songs about saving the environment. The songs are sung in both Spanish and English languages as the music is pure Latin with it's rhythms and melodies. Mister G hooks you in right from the opening title-track as you become part of his movement to save the planet, singing along to the song's addictive chorus. Even when most of the lyrics are in Spanish as in "Patas en el Aire/Paws In The Air" you still get moved by the song's jungle groove as you find yourself learning Spanish by singing along. The pop tones of "Cuantos Peces/How Many Fish" and fun flavor of "Gozar/Enjoy" will have your body moving to the music. Mister G finishes up his latest release with the wonderful harmonies of "Pachamama/Mother Earth" and the gentle acoustics of "Las Estrellas/The Stars."
