The late singer and songwriter Blaze Foley is almost unheard of outside of the circles of music fans who follow that scene closely. For many Austin musicians, he was a crazy saint, an iconoclast who was banned from virtually every bar in town, but whose songs are deeply admired and whose persona was singular – he didn't give a good god damn what anybody thought of him. He has been immortalized in Lucinda Williams' beautiful "Drunken Angel" and songwriter-guitarist Gurf Morlix, who played with him, lovingly mastered a record they made together in the late '70s which was released in 2006 as Blaze Foley & the Beaver Valley Boys. Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Kings of Leon, Lyle Lovett, and John Prine, among others, have recorded his songs. He's been exploited on a few compilations that have come out over the years with awful post-production work that he would never have agreed to. Fat Possum deepens the legend further without soiling the artist in the process. The Dawg Years is a collection of 20 Foley songs, recorded when his moniker was Deputy Dawg.

Merceditas Valdés (1928-1996), was a Cuban singer who specialized in Afro-Cuban traditional music. Under the aegis of ethnomusicologists Fernando Ortiz and Obdulio Morales, Valdés helped popularize Afro-Cuban music throughout Latin America. In 1949, she became one of the first female Santería singers to be recorded. Her recording career, which continued until her death in 1996, was especially prolific in the 1950s and 1980s.

Excellent choice of brazilian standards in an intimate conversation-type recital. The choice of a simple, but masterfully played guitar just adds to the magistral interpretation by Morente who proves her versatility outside flamenco. The sound is airy and spacious as every good recording should be. A treat for audiophiles.

In the 1950s the young John Fahey discovered the funky, unpretentious, down-home, spontaneous guitar-oriented 78s recorded in the late 1920s and early 1930s by rural Southern black and poor white folks. He changed the music to suit his own image of what art should be and created the concept of the solo steel-string guitarist/composer. Leo Kottke built on Fahey's vision, made it more accessible, and proved how large the market could be. In 1974 these two quitar giants, joined by Peter Lang, who proves on these cuts to be a guitarist of equal ability, put out this excellent and influential LP.

Depuis le nord de la Norvège, Rebekka Karijord livre un nouvel album intense et flamboyant, qui laisse ses chansons pop au piano s'envoler vers des arrangements spacieux, où les grandes orgues et le rock feutré se disputent la vedette. Après de longues tournées aux côtés de Ane Brun, dans le groupe (piano/choeurs/harpe) et souvent en première partie en solo, Rebekka Karijord sort en 2010 un premier album en dehors des frontières scandinave. Excellent accueil critique, concerts enthousiasmants, Rebekka montre sur scène un magnétisme rare. Son album est joué dans le monde entier sans qu'elle n'ait à se déplacer, puisqu'il constitue la bande son du célèbre spectacle de cirque contemporain Cirküs Cirkor.

Susanne Abbuehl startled listeners in 2001 with her debut release, April, in which she took on the poems of e.e. cummings, and created lyrics for a Carla Bley composition. A studied and original vocalist – she worked with Jeanne Lee – she is also a solid composer. Her aesthetic and restrained approach lend themselves easily to Manfred Eicher's production M.O. On Compass, Abbuehl and her band, which features the wonderful clarinetist Christoph May, dig deep into the words of James Joyce, William Carlos Williams, and the music of Sun Ra and Chick Corea. The project is once more refined and mannered yet utterly ambitious beginning with her original composition "Bathyal."

Drawing on over 30 years of experience playing the country-blues, complete with tutorials from some of the undisputed masters, it comes as no surprise that Stefan Grossman can so consistently conjure up the authentic spirit of the music with each successive release. His original compositions show Grossman to be the most confident of guitarists in his genre, effortlessly borrowing from the stylings of Mississippi John Hurt, Reverend Gary Davis, and Blind Willie McTell among various others. While his playing isn't overly flashy, it need not be. The precision and craftsmanship injected into the fluid, rolling original "Yazoo Strut," the harder blues groove of "Spider Web Blues," and a powerful rendition of Reverend Gary Davis' "Candy Man" are country blues at its very best.

Born in Granada, Morente is the eldest daughter of the late, legendary flamenco singer Enrique Morente and the dancer Aurora Carbonell. She grew up surrounded by flamenco and has since become one of Spain’s most sought-after performers, drawing modern elements of pop and jazz balladry into her music while remaining true to the classic flamenco tradition. Morente’s music has been universally lauded by demanding flamenco connoisseurs and modern rock artists alike for its crystalline timbre and for the singer’s ability to move seamlessly between warm, seductive tones to more raw and expressive phrases. A deep knowledge of the art form, as well as innate musical taste has made Morente a point of reference for aficionados and newcomers to flamenco singing.

The Other Chet Atkins is something of an unusual entry in Atkins' catalog – an entire album of the guitarist playing Spanish guitar, with no electric instruments or country music to be heard. It's a gentle, lilting album, featuring understated versions of "The Streets of Laredo," "Maria Elena," "Marcheta," and "Begin the Beguine."
