Album Review
Reviewed 2012-02-15
The first Playing for Change was something of a global sensation, combining world music superstars and a host of unknowns from around the world. This release follows that format and is a worthy successor. Great stuff all around. Every track has some element of surprise, just when you think it’s going to sound a certain way, it throws you a curve. Read the notes for info on this amazingly star-filled CD.

1. Relaxed & sunny African sway w/a hint of American blues.
2.Hip midtempo funk w/delicious vocals and a way cool groove.
3. More than 80 Colombian musicians on this mid/up happy jam.
4. Delicious Afro/Reggae/Indian/Brazilian mix. Upbeat & fiery.
5. Starts slow, picks up. A bit of Africa, a bit of Jamaica.
6. Bob Marley & son duet, cool strings, percussion, and sweetness.
7. Way cool African take on a Stevie Wonder classic. So good!!
8. Relaxed Afro blues strings, instrumental w/cool world drumming.
9. Baaba Maal vox/strings mid/upbeat w/lots of world seasoning.
10. Lennon’s classic song w/a cool lineup on vocals.
