Black Forest hipster Rainer Truby’s impeccable taste in dance-floor funk is well established, but rarely has it reached as wide as it does on this crucial new volume of his Glucklich series.
Volume IV finds Truby broadening the established Glucklich formula to include all corners of the the new-school bossa craze. So in addition to contemporary roof-raisers from the Truby Trio, Buscemi and the Kyoto Jazz Massive, there are classics like Madeline Bell’s That’s What Friends Are For as well as the Argentine, not Brazilian, swing of the Gotan Project’s Triptico. Anyone who’s been to Movement in the last year knows these tracks inside out. Newcomers to the party can start here.
